Game Instructions

The child holds up one hand while saying the lines. The fingers are the five rabbits. With his other hand he takes hold of each finger in turn as he speaks of the rabbit it represents. "The first one " is the thumb. '"The second one" is the forefinger. "The two little ones " are the two final fingers. "The big one " is the middle finger.
