At the Beach - fingerplay

My boys have always enjoyed fingerplays so I thought I would share some of our favorites with you every Sunday. (They are a fun way to develop a child's fine motor skills and imagination at the same time.)

Seeing as it is summer and we all enjoy vacations at the beach,  I will start with At the Beach, found in A Child's Seasonal Treasury

At the Beach

Build a sandcastle to the sky,                  
(Pat air, move hands upward.)
Make a moat so when waves roll by,
(Make a big circle with arms in front of body.)
The castle will stand with its sandy wall
(Hold arms upright with fingertips touching.)
'Til high tide comes and then it will fall.
(Fingers flutter at rooftop, and slowly flutter downward to lap.)
