Goldilocks Fairytale: Fingerplay

House illustrationGoldilocks and the Three Bears
Text and Actions by CK Emanuel
Based upon the traditional tale as compiled by the Grimm Brothers

A girl with golden hair on stroll in the woods,
STROKE HAIR
Went into a house that was not hers,
FINGERTIPS OF HANDS TOUCH TO FORM A TRIANGLE; SHAKE HEAD NO.
Where she ate from three bowls that were not hers,
MOVE HAND AS IF EATING FROM BOWL; SHAKE HEAD NO.
And then sat in three chairs that were not hers,
ONE HAND VERTICAL SITS ON OTHER HAND THAT IS FLAT; SHAKE HEAD NO.
Before laying in three beds that were not hers.
HANDS TOGETHER TOUCHING CHECK; SHAKE HEAD NO.
Three bears came home to a mess that was now theirs;
MAKE CLAWS; PUT HANDS ON CHECKS IN AN “OH NO!”
So Goldilocks ran to a house that was hers.
MOVE ARMS LIKE RUNNING;
FINGERTIPS TOUCH TO MAKE TRIANGLE
