Five in the Bed

I haven't had enough time to make my own bed in the morning lately, but in the past week I've made two felt beds!  I love this one and the bears that go with it (both found through clip art searches).  And Five in the Bed is one rhyme that I use every single year, probably every single month at least once...  You can't go wrong with it :)  Five Little Teddy Bears is also adorable.


Five LittleTeddy Bears
Five little teddy bears sleeping in the bed,
Three at the foot and two at the head.
One little teddy said, “This bed is too full,”
So he grabbed the blanket and started to pull!
He pulled and he pulled and he pulled some more,
Until one little teddy went BOOM to the floor!
(Make pulling motions, and clap on BOOM)

(Count down until there's just...)

One little teddy bear sleeping in the bed,
Zero at the foot and one at the head.
This little teddy said, “This is not right!
I don’t want to sleep alone tonight!”

So…
One little teddy bear sleeping in the bed,
Zero at the foot and one at the head.
This teddy said, “This bed is not full!”
So he put out his paw and started to pull.
He pulled and he pulled and he pulled some more,
Until four little teddies climbed up from the floor!

Now...
Five little teddy bears sleeping in the bed,
None at the foot and five at the head.
One little teddy said, “This is JUST right!”
So five little teddy bears said, “Good Night!”

Five in the Bed
There were five in the bed and the little one said, “I’m crowded, roll over.”
So they all rolled over and one fell out...
Wheee….Boom!
(count down until…)
There was one in the bed and the little one said, “I’m lonely, come back now!”
So they all came back and they snuggled in tight,
There was not a sound and they said “Good night!  Sleep tight! Don’t let the bed bugs bite!”

This set is for sale at my Etsy shop!  I hope you'll visit me there...
