Craft: 

The children will really cozy up to creating a warm and snuggly blankie for kitten. To create the craft, duplicate the quilt pattern (see the link below). From wallpaper or construction paper, cut out squares identical in size to those on the quilt. The children will then glue on the squares to make a patterned design of their choice.

Quilts Galore!
http://fingerplays-b3ok.blogspot.com/2012/01/quilts-galore.html

(Count off on fingers as rhyme indicates)

Five colorful quilts with patches galore,

One covered (Child's name) and then there were four.

Four colorful quilts pretty as can be,

One covered (Child's Name) and then there were three

Three colorful quilts with patches red and blue,

One covered (Child's name) and then there were two.

Two colorful quilts made just for fun,

One covered (Child's Name) and there was one.

One colorful quilt left out in the sun,

It covered (Child's Name) and then there were none.

Too Many in the Bed
http://www.kididdles.com/lyrics/t003.html

There were five in the bed and the little one said
"Roll over, roll over"
So they all rolled over and one fell out.

There were four in the bed and the little one said
"Roll over, roll over"
So they all rolled over and one fell out.

(count down to one)

There was one in the bed and the little one said
"Good Night“

 (place hand to head pretend to be asleep)

Five Little Monkeys

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed.One fell off and bumped his head.

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!“
