Here Is a Cave

Here is a cave.
(Bend fingers on one hand.)

Inside is a bear.

(Put thumb inside fingers.)

Now he comes out

To get some fresh air.

(Pop out thumb.)

He stays out all summer
In sunshine and heat.

He hunts in the forest

For berries to eat.

(Move thumb in a circle.)

When snow starts to fall,
He hurries inside

His warm little cave

And there he will hide.

(Put thumb inside fingers.)

Snow covers the cave
Like a fluffy white rug.

Inside the bear sleeps

All cozy and snug.

(Place one hand over the other.)
