Voici mes doigts...

This week's toddler session saw another counting song introduced.  I chose the song "Voici mes doigts" as this is one of Little Imp's favourites at the moment and I felt sure the other children would love it too.

If you don't know the song, here are the lyrics for you  with the actions in italics for each line - and the tune is a nice, simple one, it is the same as 3 blind mice.


Un, deux, trois,  (hold up 1, 2, 3 fingers)

Voici mes doigts.

quatre, cinq, six (hold up a 4th, 5th and 6th finger)

J’en ai dix.  (hold up the rest of your fingers)

 

Je les fais danser (make your fingers dance)

Je les fais marcher (make your fingers walk)

Je les fais frapper (clap your hands)

Voici mes doigts! (Hold your fingers up and wiggle them)
 
 
Our craft activity this week obviously needed to involve our fingers - I was tempted by finger painting but decided in the end to buy some of these cute little finger puppet die cuts and let the children get busy decorating them.  They really could then make their fingers dance and walk like the song lyrics!
 
Here are our fantastic finger puppets to inspire you in creating your own:
 










 
Happy singing and crafting! :o)

  1. I love the way all the children decorate their craft items so individually! Another great craft and song :-)
