Do you remember, “This Little Piggy Went to Market?” This week in Toddler Time and Book Babies we had fun with pigs. We also learned a new diaper changing song, and the sign for pig. If you have a chance, take your baby to a farm or fair and visit the animals where they can see a real pig.

Songs, Rhymes, and Fingerplays

Flannel Board: Five Pigs so Squeaky Clean

(to the tune of Five Green and Speckled Frogs)

Five pigs so squeaky clean
Cleanest you’ve ever seen
Wanted to go outside and play
Oink! Oink!
One jumped into the mud
Landed with a big THUD
Then there were four clean squeaky pigs!

(Take a pig and flip it over to show it getting dirty. Repeat the rhyme with one fewer pig mentioned, until there are no more clean pigs)

To Market to Market

To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.

To market, to market, to buy a fat hog,
Home again, home again, jiggety-jog.

To market, to market to buy a fat dog,
Home again, home again, jiggety jog.

To market, to market to buy a small chick,
Home again, home again, jiggety jig.

Traditional

Fingerplay: Two Mother Pigs

Two mother pigs lived in a pen (show thumbs)
Each had four babies, and that made ten (show fingers & thumbs)
These four babies were black as night (thumb in palm, wiggle fingers)
These four babies were black and white (switch hands, repeat)
But all eight babies loved to play
And they rolled and rolled in the mud all day (roll hands)
At night, with their mother, they curled up in a heap (clasp hands)
And squealed and squealed till they fell fast asleep.

Diaper Changing: The Diaper on the Bottom

(Tune: The Wheels on the Bus)

The diaper on the bottom
Comes off, off, off
Off, off, off
Off, off, off
The diaper on the bottom
Comes off, off, off
Nice and clean!

I’m a Little Piggy

(Tune: I’m a Little Teapot)

I’m a little piggy, short and stout
Here are my ears (bring hands to top of head)
And here is my snout (use fingers to gesture a long snout)
When I see the yummy food in my pail
I oink, oink, oink (jump)
and I wiggle my tail! (shake imaginary “tail”)

– Pasadena Library

If You’re a Pig and You Know it

(To Tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It”)

If you’re a pig and you know it say “Oink Oink”
“Oink Oink”
If you’re a pig and you know it say “Oink Oink”
“Oink Oink”
If you’re a pig and you know it,
Then you really ought to show it.
If you’re a pig and you know it say “Oink Oink”
“Oink Oink”

If you’re a pig and you know it wiggle your tail…
trot your feet….

The Tail of the Pig

(sung to The Wheels on the Bus)

The tail of the pig curls round and round
Round and round, round and round
The tail of the pig curls round and round
All through the mud!

The mouth of the pig goes oink oink oink
Oink oink oink, oink oink oink
The mouth of the pig goes oink oink oink
All through the mud!

The nose of the pig goes root root root
Root root root, root root root
The nose of the pig goes root root root
All through the mud!

The hooves of the pig go run run run
Run run run, run run run
The hooves of the pig go run run run
All through the mud!

The ears of the pig go twitch twitch twitch
Twitch twitch twitch, twitch twitch twitch
The ears of the pig go twitch twitch twitch
All through the mud!

Two Fat Pigs

Two fat pigs
Met in a glen
Bowed most politely
And bowed once again
“How do you do?”
And “How do you do?”
And “How do you do?” again

“How do you do?”
And “How do you do?”
And “How do you do?” again

Craft Activity

Muddy Pig Craft

Try this fun in the mud pig craft with your toddler. He will learn textures and patterns. Then talk with your baby about clean and dirty.

Tummy Time Painting

If your infant is too young for the Muddy Pig craft, try putting some paint, pudding, or Nutella with the pig in a freezer Zip-lock bag. They will love squishing the paint around the bag while the pig “wallows” in the mud.

Signing

“Pig”

Early Literacy Tip and Activity:

Tip

Even little rhymes present knowledge about our world. “Two fat Pigs” tells the story of two piglets who wallow in the mud, crawl out, and then return, just as real pigs do.

- Lambert

Activity

Recite the “Two fat Pigs,” modeling the fingerplay with your child. You can also add the sign language sign and make “pig” noises while you do it, too.
