Action Rhyme: “I’ve Got a Cold”
I’ve got a cold (point to yourself)
My nose can’t smell (point to your nose)
My eyes are red (point to your eyes)
I don’t feel well (hand on forehead)
So I’ll drink my juice (pretend to drink)
And go to bed… (fold hands under head)
My nose feels better (point to nose)
And so does my head! (point to head)

The basic idea is you move the bandage to different body parts. Credit One little librarian blog
Sing to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell:Put a bandage on my knee,
Put a bandage on my knee
Oh please take care of me
Put bandage on my knee.

Put a bandage on my head,
Put a bandage on my head
Oh please put me to bed
Put bandage on my head.

Fingerplay/Action Rhyme: “I’ve Got a Cold”
I’ve got a cold                   (point to yourself)
My nose can’t smell        (point to your nose)
My eyes are red               (point to your eyes)
I don’t feel well                (hand on forehead)
So I’ll drink my juice        (pretend to drink)
And go to bed…                (fold hands under head)
My nose feels better       (point to nose)
And so does my head!    (point to head)

Action Rhyme:  “Chicken Soup”
When my forehead's feeling hot
put hand to forehead
Do I want pizza? I do not!
hold out hands in questioning gesture, shake head
When I cough or when I sneeze
cough, sneeze
Give me a bowl of hot soup please
make bowl with hands
Eating chicken soup with rice
pretend to eat
Makes me feel so very nice
hug self
So when you're feeling under the weather
frown, point thumb down
Chicken soup might make you feel better
smile, point thumb up

Songs: “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed”
Five little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

 Got a Boo Boo: to the tune of “Clementine”
got a boo boo

got a boo boo
need a bandaid
kiss it better for me!
