Storytime: Alligators & Crocodiles (Snip Snap Stories)

Family Storytime for Ages 3-8.  Alligators and crocodiles better get their snapping ready to go.  One of a my favorite storytimes because I can have the children "snap" through all these stories.

Alligator Pie

Alligator, alligator, alligator pie.
(Hold arms out in front and snap down and together on the word "alligator")
If I don't get some,
I think I'm gonna cry.
(Mime crying)
You can take away the grass.
(Use an arm to make wavy motions)
You can take away the sky.
(Hold arms up and rounded over head)
But don't take away,
(Shake your finger)
My alligator pie!
(Snap your arms)
