For puppy dogs and waggy tails, (Move hand side to side like a
For tiny fish and great big whales. (Measure little fish
with fingers, extend arms wide for whales)
For the family that we love, (Place hands over heart)
For earth and sea and sky above. (Cup hands to make a globe, then
waves, then point to the sky)
For clothes and shoes upon our feet, (Point to shoes)
And for the food we soon will eat. (Pretend to eat)
