Fingerplay Grandma’s Spectacles
(good for quieting down)
These are grandmother’s spectacles, (makes circles around eyes with fingers)
This is grandmother’s hat.(use both hands and cup on head)
This is the way she folds her hands, (fold hands)
And puts them on her lap.(put hands in lap)
These are Grandpa’s spectacles
This is Grandpa’s hat
Here’s the way he folds his arms And THAT IS THAT!
