Washing One's Self

Source: Games Without Music For Children

The teacher may repeat the lines, accompanying them with the actions,
which the children imitate, or the children may learn and repeat the
words themselves.

[1]Wash your hands, dear children all,
[2]Palms we rub and [3]backs as well,
[4]Round the wrist we leave no mark,
Else a sad tale that would tell;
[5]Rub the knuckles, [6]brush nails, too,
Clean, bright[7] hands nice work can do.

Now 'tis time to [8]wash your face,
[9]Soap your hands, and [10]rub away,
[11]Gently round the ears we go,
[12]Don't forget your eyes, I say;
[13]Nose, and [14]mouth, and [15]forehead high,
[16]All to make quite clean we try.
