Action Rhyme There was a Little Man
There was a little man
And he had a little crumb (tickle baby’s cheek)
And over the mountain he did run (run fingers over top of baby’s head)
With a belly full of fat (jiggle baby’s belly)
And a big top hat (pat head)
And a pancake stuck to his bum, bum, bum! (pat baby’s bottom)Source: King County Library System
