Touch Your Nose

(Activity 25 Month 2)

Touch your nose, touch your chin, That’s the way this game begins. 

Touch your eyes, Touch your knees; Now pretend you’re going to sneeze.  

Touch your hair, Touch one ear; Touch your two red lips right here.  

Touch your elbows where they bend, 

That’s the way this touch game ends.
