I Like To Sing a Song...Sing Sing Sing!

I wish I could take credit for this cute idea - but I actually got it from my Aunt who teaches Nursery in my parents ward! This is how they do singing time - each wood cut out has a song written on the back. They had a few and I wanted to make my own set (I added a few more...he he)

Katelyn loves this game! She'll open the bag and hand me each different cut out and we'll sing the song. Most of the them have actions the go along with the song. Katelyn knows quite a few and will do the actions along with me while we sing. Her current favorites are: Popcorn Popping, Once There Was a Snowman, The Wheels on the Bus, 3 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, 3 Little Ducks, 3 Little Monkeys Teasing Mr. Alligator, Red Light Green Light, and Little Red Caboose.

I have a few more ideas and songs to add, plus you'll see a few that I haven't quite figured out what song to do yet... but this works great for FHE (we just pick a song to sing out of the bag) and it's great for Katelyn to learn all these songs and rhymes!

I got all my cutouts at Michaels and Roberts - I still haven't painted some of them. I just wrote the name of the song on the back of the cutout so I would remember what song it was suppose to be.
It really is one of Katelyn's favorite activities to do.
