Happy Flannel Friday y’all! This fun counting song was a blast with my toddlers the last time I used it during storytime- I can’t wait to sing it again come January and the Western Stock Show! It goes a little something like this:
5 Little Cowpokes
to the tune of “5 Little Ducks”
5 little cowpokes riding to the store (bounce while pretending to hold reigns)
1 stepped on a cactus – OUCH (grab toe) and then were 4!
4 little cowpokes racing to the tree (bounce faster)
1 stepped on a cactus – OUCH (grab toe) and then were 3!
3 little cowpokes riding under the sky so blue (bounce normal)
1 stepped on a cactus – OUCH (grab toe) and then were 2!
2 little cowpokes racing under the sun (bounce faster)
1 stepped on a cactus – OUCH (grab toe) and then was 1!
1 little cowpoke riding all alone (bounce slowly)
So he turned right around and he rode on home.
Credit: Myself! I thought of this little diddy in the shower the night before storytime. I don’t know about you, but I do my best songwriting in the shower. 🙂
Pattern: I used FREE super cute online clip art from Laura at My Cute Graphics. Thanks a ton Laura!
