Rhyme: "The Baby in the Cradle"
 
The baby in the cradle goes rock, rock, rock (rock baby or hold them in your arms)
The clock on the wall goes tock, tock, tock (wiggle index finger from side to side)
The rain on the window goes tap, tap, tap (tap fingertips together lightly)
But here comes the sun (raise arms in air like the sun)
So let's all clap! (clap hands)

Rhyme: "The Eensy Weensy Spider"
 
The eensy weensy spider (put fingertips together)
Went up the water spout (twist hands so fingertips "climb" the spout)
Down came the rain (wiggle fingers downwards like rain)
And washed the spider out (brush hands to the side, like a flood)
Out came the sun (raise hands up overheard like the sun)
And dried up all the rain (wiggle fingers upwards like rain drying up)
So the eensy weensy spider (put fingertips together)
Went up the spout again. (twist hands so fingertips "climb" the spout)
