Activity: Five Little Mice

 
2012-11-13_14-59-03_66

(The cat would come out and snag a mouse. Pretty engaging for the kids)

Five little mice came out to play,
Gathering crumbs up on their way;
Out came a pussy cat Sleek and black,
Meeoooww!
Four little mice went scampering back.

(continue counting down remaining mice)

Activity: Monkey See Monkey Do

 

Monkey see, monkey do
Little monkey in the zoo
Monkey, monkey, in the tree
Can you jump around like me?
(...swing tail, clap hands, nod head, sit down)

2012-09-25_12-03-26_128

(This is always a winner. I have a hole in the box, and the hat, so I can reach though and pull out the animals.)

Magic!  Magic!  In my hat,
I’ll pull out a rabbit –
Aaaaaa!!  What is that?!!

(Pull anything other than a rabbit out and repeat.)

Magic!  Magic!  In my hat,
I’ll pull out a rabbit –
See!!  Look at that!!
