Five Little Speckled Frogs – Glub Glub

Five Little Speckled Frogs by Super Simple Songs

Five Little Speckled Frogs is a classic kids’ song that’s fun to sing and act out! This counting down song follows five froggy friends as they sit by a pond, having an insect meal. One-by-one, they jump into the water. 

Counting down songs are a great way to introduce subtraction to kids as you remove one frog for each verse. It’s also a fun fingerplay!

Lyrics and Fingerplay Actions
Five little speckled frogs (hold up one hand with five fingers outstretched)
Sat on a speckled log (make a “log” with the other arm, place the “frogs” on the log)
Eating some most delicious bugs (make a mouth with your hand and pretend to catch bugs)
Yum yum (rub your tummy)
One jumped into the pool (make a diving motion)
Where it was nice and cool (pretend to swim)
Now there are four green speckled frogs (hold up four fingers behind the log)
Glub glub (make a popping motion with both hands)

Four little speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log (hold up four frogs on the log)
Eating some most delicious bugs (pretend to catch bugs)
Yum yum (rub your tummy)
One jumped into the pool (make a diving motion)
Where it was nice and cool (pretend to swim)
Now there are three green speckled frogs (hold up three fingers behind the log)
Glub glub (make a popping motion with both hands)
