Fingerplay:

I Have a Little Heart

I have a little heart and it goes thump, thump, thump. (place hand over heart and pat three times)

It keeps on beating when I jump, jump, jump. (jump in place)

I get a special feeling when I look at you… (point to someone you love)

It makes me want to give you a kiss or two! (blow a kiss)

Here’s My Heart

Here’s my heart, (place hands over heart)

I’ll open it wide. (open hands outward)

It’s full of love (hug self)

For you inside! (point at someone you love)

My Valentine

It’s nice to have a friend like you, (point to a friend)

I’ll tell you what I’m going to do. (nod head)

Because you make me feel so fine, (hug shoulders and turn R and L)

I’ll take you for my valentine! (pat hands over heart or make heart shape with index fingers and thumbs)
