Picnic in the Park
from http://daybydayid.org/June/12

We packed sandwiches cookies and juice pretend to pack
And we went for a walk to the park walk fingers
We found a tree with lots of shade raise arms overhead
And spread our blanket beneath spread blanket
But what do you think happened? Shrug shoulders
When we started to eat our food pretend to eat
One squirrel scampered over hold up & wiggle one finger
Two birds hopped close by two fingers hopping
And hundreds of ants marched up to us wiggle all fingers
All to share our food! Pretend to pass out food

Music

4…knock at the door
5…buzz a beehive
6…pick up sticks
