Rhymes and Fingerplays:

My Big Blue Boat

I love to sail in my big blue boat (wave arm up and down like a boat on water)
My big blue boat, my big blue boat
I love to sail in my big blue boat
Out on the deep blue sea.

My big blue boat goes up and down (bend knees to go down and straighten up)
Up and down, up and down
My big blue boat goes up and down
Out on the deep blue sea.

My big blue boat goes side to side (sway from right to left and back)
Side to side, side to side
My big blue boat goes side to side
Out on the deep blue sea.

My big blue boat rocks back and forth (rock forward and back)
Back and forth, back and forth
My big blue boat rocks back and forth
Out on the deep blue sea.

My big blue boat turns round and round (turn in a circle)
Round and round, round and round
My big blue boat turns round and round
Out on the deep blue sea.

My big blue boat goes here and there (look right and left)
Here and there, here and there
My big blue boat goes here and there
Out on the deep blue sea.

I love to sail in my big blue boat (wave arm up and down like a boat on water)
My big blue boat, my big blue boat
I love to sail in my big blue boat
Out on the deep blue sea.

Sailboat Song
(tune: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)

Sailboat, sailboat on the sea
Won’t you come and carry me
Through the ocean, through the bay
Any place that’s far away?
Sailboat, sailboat in the sea
Won’t you come and carry me?

Motorboat Game
(This game is for 2 or more children. Make sure there is enough room for them to spin around and a soft place to fall down. Children should hold hands and form a circle)

Motorboat, motorboat, go so slow (move in a circle to the right)
Motorboat, motorboat, go so fast (go faster in a circle)
Motorboat, motorboat, step on the gas! (go as fast as you can, around and around,
until you fall down)

(Repeat this game going to the left)
