Way Up in the SkyWay up in the sky, the big birdies fly;While down in the nest, the little birdies rest.With a wing on the left and a wing on the right,The little birdies sleep, most all of the night.Sssshhhhh, don't wake up the birdies...
The bright sun comes up, the moon goes away,"Good morning! Good morning!" the little birdies say.Credit:Childhood
We used watercolors, dot markers, insect stickers, and butterfly cut-outs to make a colorful spring picture.
