I have a hed to help me think (touch head)

Touch game (from Stillwater Library)
Touch your nose,
Touch your chin
That's the way this game begins
Touch your eyes
Touch your knees
Now pretend you are going to sneez
Touch your hair
Touch one ear
Touch your two red lips right here
Touch your elbows where they bend
That's the way the touch game ends.

I am special,
I am special,
Look at me!
Look at me!
I am very special,

Look at me!
Look at me!
