This finger play is also done in Switzerland and Austria.

Game Instructions

First the child wiggles all five fingers. Then they show the thumb, then the forefinger, the middle finger, the ring finger and the pinkie at the end.

On "Es ist angericht', Iss, mein Kindlein, brenn dich nicht " they wave their hand.
