Hands can dance

A very simple hand action song.

Model the hand actions for your bigger baby or toddler, dancing your fingers, covering your face for peekaboo, and blowing a kiss.

For very little babies, take their hands in yours and move them with the rhythm of the words, hiding your face behind your bundled hands for peekaboo, and kissing baby’s hands to blow them a kiss.

The tune is ‘Oats and beans and barley grow’. It's performed by Janet Russell, and it can be found in Playsongs Grand Exercise.
