A Christmas Story Fingerplay
Original Author Unknown

Clop, clop, clop went the donkey’s feet (Pound hands on knees)
Clop, clop, clop down the stoney street
Nod, nod, nod went Mary’s head (Nod head)
She was tired; she needed a bed (Make sleeping motion with hands on side of head)
Knock, knock, knock went Joseph at the door (Knocking motion)
Do you have room for one more? (Hold up one finger)
No, no, no the innkeeper said (Shake head no)
We don’t even have one more bed
Wait, wait, wait! the innkeeper said (Hold hand up in “waiting” motion)
You can use my stable for a bed
Shh, shh, shh, what is that I hear? (Finger to lips)
The cry of baby Jesus oh so dear (Baby rocking motion)
