Upon a Spider’s Web

One little elephant went out to play,

Upon a spider’s web one day.

He had such enormous fun,

that he called for another little elephant.

(count up)

Five little elephants went out to play,

Upon a spider’s web one day.

The web went creak, the web went crack,

And five little elephants came running back!

What a Nose

An elephant stomps like this and that (stomp feet)

He’s terribly big (hands up)

And he’s terribly fat (hands out wide)

He has big ears (hands by ears)

And he has big toes (touch toes)

And goodness gracious, what a nose! (make elephant trunk)

Five Elephants in the Bathtub

One elephant in the bathtub

Going for a swim (swimming motion).

Knock, knock (clap twice)

Splash, splash (slap knees twice)

Come on in (motion come in)

(count up)

Five elephants in the bathtub

Going for a swim

Knock, knock

Splash, splash

They all fall in (raise arms)

Elephant Walk

Right foot, left foot, see me go (stomp feet)

I am gray and big and slow (hold hands out wide)

I come walking down the street (stomp feet)

With my trunk and four big feet (make trunk)
