Little Duck Fingerplay

Little Duck Fingerplay
(Original Author Unknown)

I am a little duck that goes quack, quack, quack. (Shape hand as duck’s mouth and open and close it to pantamime quacking).

And I’ve got lots of feathers on my back, back, back. (Flap hands behind back to show tail feathers).

And when I go down to the lake, I wiggle and I wobble and I shake, shake, shake. (Move with wiggling, wobbling, and shaking motions like a duck).

And when I go to sleep at night, (Shape hands like a pillow and pretend to rest head on them).

I close my eyes very tight. But in the morning when I wake, I wiggle and I wobble and I shake, shake, shake. (move with wiggling, wobbling, and shaking motions like a duck)
