Rhyme: "Wiggling Puppies"
 
One little puppy, one hold up one finger
Wiggled his tail and had wiggling fun tickle baby’s knees and legs
Two little puppies, two hold up two fingers
Wiggled their bodies as puppies do tickle baby’s tummy
Three little puppies, three hold up three fingers
Wiggled their noses happily touch baby's nose
Four little puppies, four hold up four fingers
Wiggled their shoulders and wiggled some more tickle baby's neck and shoulders
Five little puppies, five hold up five fingers
Wiggled with joy to be alive! tickle baby all over!

Rhyme: "Five Little Kittens"
 
Five little kittens sitting in a row hold up 5 fingers
They nod their heads to the children so bend fingers
They run to the left run fingers to the left
They run to the right run fingers to the right
They stand up and stretch in the bright sunlight stretch fingers out tall
Along comes a dog who's looking for some fun hold up finger on opposite hand
MEOW! See those little kittens run, run, run. let fingers run all around
