A Five Little Monkeys Story by Eileen Christelow
Materials needed: tongue depressors, glue, cut out pictures of monkeys and an alligator.
Directions: Glue each picture to a tongue depressor.
Instructions: Either you can hold the puppets, or let each child have a puppet and play along. The one with the alligator always has fun!
As you say the rhyme let the alligator eat a monkey. Have fun and count wrong sometimes. The kids love it when they correct you and everyone laughs and has a good time.
