Bounces, Rhymes & Fingerplays

This Little Train
This little train ran up the track run fingertips up baby’s arm
It went Choo Choo! Beep baby’s nose
And then it ran back. run fingertips back down baby’s arm

The other little train ran up the track run fingertips up baby’s other arm
It went Choo Choo! Beep baby’s nose
And then it ran back. run fingertips back down baby’s arm

Choo-Choo Train
Adapted From: Ring a Ring O’Roses by Flint Public Library
This is a choo-choo train bounce
Puffing down the track.
Now it’s going forward lean forward
Now it’s going back lean backward
Now the bell is ringing—ring ring pretend to ring the bell
Now the whistle blows—toot toot
What a lot of noise it makes cover ears
Everywhere it goes stretch arms out

Music

I’ve Been Working On The Railroad by Raffi
We take out our shaky eggs and pretend they are train whistles as we shake to the song.
