B is for Butterfly Finger Play

Caterpillar and Butterfly Hand Motion Song
by Megan Sheakoski

(Sung to the tune of Are You Sleeping?)
Caterpillar, caterpillar,
In my hand, in my hand,
Soon you’ll be a butterfly.
Soon you’ll be a butterfly.
And fly away. Fly away.

The kids cup their hands and swing them gently back and forth in front of their bodies while singing about the caterpillar. They hook their thumbs and flutter their fingers like wings during the third and fourth line and then move their butterfly fingers up into the air for the last line.

Flutter, flutter, Butterfly
Sung to: “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.

Roly-Poly Caterpillar

Roly-poly caterpillar (wiggle right pointer finger)
Into a corner crept, (place right pointer finger in left cupped hand)
Spun around himself a blanket (spin around)
Then for a long time slept. (place head on folded hands)
Roly-poly caterpillar (wiggle right pointer finger)
Wakening by and by, (“stretch” right pointer finger)
Found himself with beautiful wings
Changed to a butterfly. (flutter arms like wings)

Butterfly Chant

A burst of blue,
A shock of green,
A flap of wings is all that’s seen.
A flutter in the flower beds,
A burst of blue,
A bit of red,
A whisper as it flutters by,
You’re oh so pretty, butterfly.
