Words:

Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little clap
Open shut them, open shut them
Put them in your lap
Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little shake
Open shut them, open shut them
Keep yourself awake
Open shut them, open shut them
Don’t get in a ¬†muddle
Open shut them, open shut them
Give yourself a cuddle

Context:

We had fun singing this outside in the sunshine at Hexham Stay and Play.

This action song is perfect for babies and toddlers.

Hold their little hands if they are tiny, and as they grow older they can do the actions themselves.

For the first verse, open and shut with the thumbs and fingers apart. For the second verse, open your fingers like star fish. For the third verse open up your arms wide, and have fun muddling them up before the cuddle at the end.

Enjoy!
