A Crayfish Comes
A crayfish comes
When it stings you
There will be a mark!
I saw the nursery rhyme about the crayfish. My family has a slightly different version that I think people might enjoy.
Here comes a lobster,
Not a beet.
When he bites you,
It leaves a mark.
My Mom is going to ask my grandmother to write down any children's songs and rhymes that she remembers. If there's anything you don't already have, I'll send it along. :)
This is a finger play (or rather a "body" play) - fingers are "walking" from the tummy to the underarms and... tickling.
