Sing a Song

Sand Castle
(Tune: "The Hokey Pokey")

You put some sand in.
You take some sand out.
You put some sand in
And you shape it all about.

You make a sand castle
With towers all around.
That's what it's all about!

You put some shells in
You take some shells out.
You put some shells in
And you place them all about.

You make a sand castle
With shells all around.
That's what it's all about!

Watch

Bert and Ernie Go to the Beach

Try This

Today’s color is tan. Think of all the animals that are shades of tan and brown. Draw pictures of these animals and glue or tape them onto popsicle sticks or straws to make puppets!

It might be too cold for the beach this month, but you can make kinetic sand and play with it inside!
