Action Rhyme: “Johnny Works With One Hammer”
Johnny works with one hammer, one hammer, one hammer
Johnny works with one hammer, and then he works with two
(Two hammers – both fists on legs; Three hammers – both fists on legs and one foot on the floor; Four hammers – both fists on legs and both feet on the floor; Five hammers – both fists on legs, both feet on floor and nod head up and down; “And then he goes to sleep!”)

Fingerplay: “Noisy Nails”
I use my hammer and five nails (hold up five fingers)
That’s too noisy, my neighbor yells (yell)
I’ll hammer them now before it’s night (pretend to hammer)
And to my neighbor, I’ll be polite! (bow)

  1. Hi Josh, Great you are delighted with this 357. I have one myself because like 10 decades. I like it too, not modded as yours though.
    Currently it doesn't function, it chokes if warm. Brought into a neigbour of mine and he will get a deeper look at it.
    It seems like some have had trouble with the automatic decompression valve, so does yours have that?
