Finger Play Fun Day - 5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

Finger Play Fun Day

Finger plays are a fun way for children to learn music, math, reading and motor skills!


This week we will be singing 5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.

This finger play helps children learn to count backwards and works on finger coordination, rhythm and timing.

I had so much fun last week making the felt duck finger puppets that I made some monkey puppets this week. 

Before you watch the video you can make your own finger puppets. My dear friend, Carolyn, at Wise Owl Factory prepared a printable of monkey finger puppets that are available for downloading. So print them out and get ready for some fun!

5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

5 little monkeys jumping on the bed
1 fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed.”


4 little monkeys jumping on the bed
1 fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed.”


3 little monkeys jumping on the bed
1 fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed.”


2 little monkeys jumping on the bed
1 fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed.”


1 little monkeys jumping on the bed
1 fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed.”

To continue the monkey fun, we have a 5 Little Monkey printable. Each page has monkeys to cut out and glue on the picture.  The numbers count backwards from 5 to 1.
