wee sing note purpleParent Tip: Identifying different parts of the body Song: "Little Peter Rabbit" (Wee Sing Animals, Animals, Animals, Wee Sing Children's Songs and Fingerplays)
• With babies or toddlers, a parent can sing and do the motions for the first verse of the song while the child watches.
• After the words "and he flicked it 'til it flew away," the parent keeps moving his/her fingers (the fly) and makes them land on another part of the child's body (e.g. head, knee, ankle, nose, elbow...).
• The parent (and the child if old enough) sings the song again and does the motions using the word for the new body part (e.g. "Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his head").
• Continue, having the "fly" land on different parts of the child for as long as the child's attention span holds.

• The class sings the song and does the motions suggested for the first verse of the song.
• After the words "and he flicked it 'til it flew away," the class stops and the teacher keeps moving his/her fingers (the fly) and makes them land on another part of any child's body (e.g. head, knee, ankle, nose, elbow...).
• The class sings the song again and does the motions using the word for the new body part (e.g. "Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his head").
• Continue for as long as the attention span holds, or until the fly has landed somewhere on each child in the class.
