Squirrel Gathers Nuts

These are brown leaves,
fluttering down,
(flutter hands down to ground)

And this is the tall tree
(hold up right arm)
Bare and brown.

This is the squirrel
(make fist with left hand, stick thumb up)

With eyes so bright
(two circles with thumbs and index fingers)

Hunting for nuts,
With all of his might

This is the hole
(make hole with right thumb and index finger)

Where day by day
Nut after nut

He stores away
(place nuts in hole with left hand)

When winter comes
With its cold and storm

He'll sleep curled up,
(circle right hand around left fist)
All snug and warm.
