I wish I could take credit for this cute idea – but I actually got it from my Aunt who teaches Nursery in my parents ward! This is how they do singing time – each wood cut out has a song written on the back. They had a few and I wanted to make my own set (I added a few more…he he)
My daughter loves this game! She’ll open the bag and hand me each different cut out and we’ll sing the song. Most of the them have actions the go along with the song. Katelyn knows quite a few and will do the actions along with me while we sing. Her current favorites are: Popcorn Popping, Once There Was a Snowman, The Wheels on the Bus, 3 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, 3 Little Ducks, 3 Little Monkeys Teasing Mr. Alligator, Red Light Green Light, and Little Red Caboose.
I have a few more ideas and songs to add, plus you’ll see a few that I haven’t quite figured out what song to do yet… but this works great for FHE (we just pick a song to sing out of the bag) and it’s great for her to learn all these songs and rhymes!
