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.)
