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...

Sticky, Sticky Bubblegum
Sticky, sticky, sticky bubblegum, bubblegum, bubblegum.
Sticky, sticky, sticky bubblegum, sticking your hands to your head.
Ready, unstick!
Verses:
Sticking your hands to your knees.
Sticking your hand to your elbows.
Sticking your back to someone else’s hand.

Craft—Slime:

 

This was a great, easy, and really not TOO messy project. The kids had fun experimenting with the stretchiness and color of their slime.  It's a good introduction to some simple science, too!
