The Little Turtle

The Little Turtle

I had a little turtle. (Cup your hand slightly to make a shell.)
He lived inside a box. (Cover the shell with your other hand.)
He swam in the water. (Move both arms as if swimming.)
And he climbed on the rocks. (Move both arms as if climbing.)
He snapped at a mosquito. (Make a snapping motion with one hand.)
He snapped at a flea. (Snap again.)
He snapped at a minnow. (Snap again.)
And he snapped at me. (Snap again.)
He caught the mosquito. (Snatch the imaginary bug and eat it.)
He caught the flea. (Same as above.)
He caught the minnow. (Again.)
But he didn’t catch me! (Point to yourself.)
