Gummy Bear
 
 
Gummy bear is glad to be
Here today with you and me
He/she can dance and turn around
Hide from you, jump up and down
Gummy bear sit on my knee
Tell me child's name, what color is he/she?


I do a polar bear and a butterfly variation on this as well. You could almost use anything you want with this color rhyme.

Pumpkins in the Patch
 
 
 
Pumpkins, pumpkins in the patch
Pumpkins, pumpkins on the vine
There are five, round and orange
I'll take one,
and it is mine!
(Continue until all pumpkins are gone)

Batty Bats

 
 
Five batty bats flying all around
One batty bat heard a far off sound
That batty flew far away
Now he/she is not here to play
Continue to count down
 
 
Variation:
1.) Instead of 5 bats, give each child a bat and use the number of children you have.  Count down from there.
2.) Use color bats:
      5 colorful bats flying all around
      (or however many colors you want)
      The red little bat heard a far off sound
     Etc...

Turkey Feathers
 
 
Turkey Feathers
 
Mr. Turkey was so sad,
 He lost the feathers he once had.
 Now he wants us to help him find
 All the feathers of his kind.
 We will look high and low,
 We will find them don't you know.
 Here's a red one and a blue
 Look, we've found a green one too.
Here's an orange one and a yellow,
Soon he'll be a feathered fellow.
 Now we've found the purple one,
 Black and white -- we're almost done.
If we just look up and down,
I know we'll find the feather brown.
Now Mr. Turkey is so glad,
We found the feathers he once had.

Little Acorn


Little Acorn 
The squirrel, nest, and leafy shade are all separate pieces

Little Acorn
Little acorn on the ground
If you’re lucky and you’re not found
If squirrel and children leave you be
Someday you’ll grow to be a tree
Children will play in your leafy shade
Squirrels will hide in the nests they’ve made
Oh how happy we will be
We let you grow into a tree


Squeaky Clean Pigs

The pigs are clean on one side and dirty on the back
(to the tune of Green & Speckled Frogs)
Squeaky Clean Pigs

Five pigs so squeaky clean
Cleanest pigs you’ve ever seen
Wanted to go outside and play
Oink, oink
One jumped into the mud
Landed with a great big THUD!
Now there are 4 clean squeaky pigs
Continue to count down to zero

A Healthy Treat
 
 
 
 
Adaptation: A Healthy Treat
(sung to the tune of "The Ants Go Marching")
A banana treat is what we'll eat.
Hurrah! Hurrah!
A banana treat is what we'll eat.
Hurrah! Hurrah!
A banana treat is what we'll eat.
Don't feed us anything sticky sweet.
For we want a healthy snack.
It is time; pass the treats,
Won't you please!

Substitute different fruits
