Five Frisky Frogs
Five little frisky frogs hopping on the shore. (Hold up five fingers. hop.)
One hopped into the pond- SPLASH! (Call “splash” loudly throw hands out and up.)
So then there were just four. Four little frisky frogs climbing up a tree. (Hold up four fingers. Climb.)
One fell into the grass - BOOM! (Fall and call “boom” loudly.)
So then there were just three.
Three little frisky frogs bathing in the dew. (Hold up 3 fingers. Wash face and body.)
One caught a sneezy cold - AHHCHOO! (Cover nose and sneeze loudly.)
So then there were just two.
Two little frisky frogs sleeping in the sun. (Hold up two fingers and sleep.)
One slept the day away - SNORE! (Snore loudly.)
So then there was just one.
One little frisky frog sitting on a stone. (Hold up 1 finger, lean chin on hand and look sad.)
Let’s call his four friends back - YOO - HOO! (Cup hands around the mouth.)
So he won’t be alone. (Hold up five fingers and smile)
