Welcome to Finger Play Fun Day!


Each week I will demonstrate a finger play that you can do at home or in the classroom.


Finger plays are a great teaching tool.  Children learn best while having fun and engaging with their whole bodies.


Finger plays teach math, reading skills, rhyming, social skills as well as fine motor skills!

Today's finger play is Five Little Ducks.

In the video, I use little finger puppets that I made after I saw a cute post by The Iowa Farmer's Wife.  I made several sets for my girls too!

  1. This is my daughter's FAVORITE song at the moment. She's been singing it non-stop for the past few weeks!

    My husband just accepted a job in Sacremento, so we're moving out there in the next few weeks! I'll keep you in mind for music activities!!

    1. We should get together when you come to Sacramento! It would be fun to meet a blogging friend and talk about blogging! Good luck with the move.
