THE PEEK-A-BOO DRAGON

FREE TO COPY 

     Christmas is coming. Are you wondering what to get for that littlest one in your family? Older babies to four year olds love to play peek a boo. Copy off my Peek A Boo Dragon story poem and add a dragon puppet. Be sure to use a friendly looking dragon, not scary. (Works good with any puppet or stuffed animal just change the word ‘dragon’ to whatever puppet you have.) Read the story inside, outside, where ever while playing peek a boo.(see the story line.) Older preschoolers can play the game with others too. Remember this is free to all parents, grandparents, teachers and any one who want to share.  All I ask is that you COMMENT when you copy it and  acknowledge me as the author.

PEEK A BOO DRAGON
by
M. C. Arvanitis

I am the Peek a Boo Dragon and I've come to play.
I can peek a boo with you just any old day.
Peek a boo, peek a boo, peek a boo boo boo.
Whenever you'll let me I'll peek a boo with you

I am the Peek a Boo Dragon and I can play peek a boo
With your brother, sister, and especially with you.
If your grandma or grandpa is home they can play.
Just hide behind the door--then jump out and say.
Peek a boo, peek a boo, peek a boo boo boo.
Whenever you'll let me I'll peek a boo with you.

I am the Peek a Boo Dragon and I'm here to say
I will play peek a boo on a bright sunny day.
We'll peek a boo your shadow when it's on the run.
It'll peek a boo back in and out of the sun.

If snow is on the ground and you build a snowman
I'll come and peek a boo him if you think I can.
But if he just stands looking at me and you
I think he doesn't like me to play peek a boo.
Peek a boo, peek a boo, peek a boo boo boo.
Whenever you'll let me I'll peek a boo with you.

If your day is boring and you don't know what to do.
Come and find me and I will peek a boo with you.
Call up your friend to come over to play
We'll play peek a boo for the rest of the day. 

Be careful of the lamps and things sitting around.
Cause if you peek a boo wildly and knock one down
You may be sent to your room for a time out.
But if happens to you don't sit alone and pout.
Just call on me. You'll feel better if you do.
Whenever you'll let me I'll peek a boo with you.

When it's time for lunch and you don't want to eat.
You don't like the veggies or even your meat.
You can play peek a boo with veggies --just wait.
When no one is looking hide them under your plate.

But your mama may play this little game too.
Finding the food will be her "peek a boo." 
She'll laugh when you tell her I hid it for you.
"That peek a boo Dragon is too smart to be true."
Peek a boo, peek a boo, peek a boo boo boo.
Whenever you'll let me I'll peek a boo with you.

It's time for your bed but you don't want to go.
Don't spend time crying and carrying on so.
Just crawl under the covers and pretend to do
The peek a boo, with me and the sandman too.

Morning will come quickly if you close your eyes.
And when the sun is climbing in the daytime skies.
The Peek a Boo Dragon will came back to play,
and we'll peek a boo, peek a boo all of the day.
Peek a boo, peek a boo, peek a boo boo boo.
I'm the Peek a Boo Dragon and I'll peek a boo you.
     Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek a boo!
