The Waves on the Beach
To the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus"
The waves on the beach go up and down, up and down, up and down.
The waves on the beach go up and down, all through the day.
The clams on the beach (open and shut)...
The crabs on the beach (snap, snap, snap)...
The swimmers on the beach (splash, splash, splash)...
The lifeguard on the beach (yells "Swim on back!")...

Five Little Fish
Five little fishies swimming in the sea, teasing Mr. Shark, saying,
"You can't catch me!"
Along comes Mr. Shark, gliding silent as can be, and he SNAPS that fish right out of the sea!!
Repeat, counting down.

Craft—Bubblewrap Painting:

The kids made fish, octopus, and starfish prints using bubblewrap and tempera paints. They also added glitter at the end for the straight-from-the-beach look!
