Itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout (Place thumb and pointer fingers together on each hand; twist so that the "spider" is walking up)
Down came the rain (make "rain drops" falling with fingers)
And washed the spider out (wave hands across your body)
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain (raise above head and bring slowly down to your sides in an arc)
