Rock-A-Bye Baby

And down will come baby, cradle and all.

Five Little Monkeys
(Hold five fingers up for the “Monkeys” and make your other hand “Mr. Crocodile,” moving him around as the song suggests then “biting” a finger when the song says “Snap!” Repeat song with one less finger until you’re out of “Monkeys.”)

Five little monkeys sitting in a tree.
Teasing Mr. Crocodile, "You can't catch me!".
Along comes Mr. Crocodile, quiet as can be.
