*Two Mother Pigs
Two mother pigs lived in a pen, (two thumbs up)
Each had four babies and that made ten. (Wiggle four fingers on each hand)
These four babies were black and white. (Wiggle four fingers on one hand)
These four babies were black as night. (Wiggle four fingers on the other hand)
All eight babies loved to play. (Wiggle eight fingers)
And the rolled and they rolled in the mud all day. (Roll hands)
At night, with their mother,
They curled up in a heap, (Make fists, palms up)
And squealed and squealed
‘Til they went to sleep. (Tuck thumbs under fingers)

**1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Fingertips
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 fingertips,
I can touch them to my lips.
I can cover up my eyes,
I can clap them on my thighs.
I can make them touch the sky,
I can make them wave bye-bye!
