    Five Pigs So Squeaky Clean
    Five pigs so squeaky clean.
    Cleanest you’ve ever seen.
    Wanted to go outside and play.
    Oink! Oink!
    One jumped into the mud.
    Landed with a big THUD.
    Then there were four clean squeaky pigs...

    Craft—Watercolor and Sand Painting

    Inspired by Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty art installation, the children used watercolors to create watery backgrounds and then painted their own unique designs with a glue/water mixture. We topped off the design with sand and glitter. (Credit to sarahlipoff.com for the project idea.)

    Shake Your Shaker
    To the tune of "London Bridges"
    Shake your shaker in the air, shake it here, shake it there.
    Shake your shaker in the air.  Shake your shaker.

    Additional verses:
    Shake your shaker..
    ...up and down, rub your shaker on the ground...
    ...high and low, shake it fast, shake it slow...
    ...near and far, drive your shaker in the car...
    ...fast and slow, shake it stop, shake it go...
