Here is the Beehive
Here is the beehive (make a fist)
But where are the bees?
Hidden away where nobody sees!
Here they come,
Creeping out of the hive, (pop a finger out for each bee)
1 . . . 2 . . . 3 . . . 4 . . . 5 . . .Bzzzzzzzzzzzzz!
(fly fingers and tickle a friend!)

Five Little Ladybugs
Five little ladybugs on our front door,
(Hold up five fingers.)
One flew to [Name,] and that left four.
(Hold up four fingers.)
Four little ladybugs, oh so wee,
One flew to [Name,] and that left three.
(Hold up three fingers.)
Three little ladybugs saying “howdy-do,”
One flew to [Name,] and that left two.
(Hold up two fingers.)
Two little ladybugs snoozing in the sun,
One flew to [Name,] and that left one.
(Hold up one finger.)
One little ladybug alone on the door,
It flew to Mom, then there were no more.
(Bend down last finger.)

*Substitute names of people in your family for those in the rhyme.

Flutter, Flutter, Butterfly (Tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)
Flutter, flutter butterfly,
Floating in the summer sky.
Floating by for all to see,
Floating by so merrily.
Flutter, flutter butterfly,
Floating in the summer sky.     

Butterfly, Butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly,
Fly around.
Butterfly, butterfly,
Land on the ground.
Butterfly, butterfly,
Stand and sing.
Butterfly, butterfly,
Flap one wing.
Butterfly, butterfly,
Fly up high!
Butterfly, butterfly,
Wink one eye.
Butterfly, butterfly,
Day is done.
Butterfly, butterfly,
Sleep til the morning sun.

Oh My, Butterfly!
Oh me, oh my!
Get off my knee (toes, nose, etc.)
You butterfly!

Oh me, oh my!
It’s time to get going
You butterfly!
Get going . . . bye, bye.

See you at Storytime!
