Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing – May 23, 2012

Song: It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
We’re going to sing a song
And it won’t take long
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing Thing Time

Nursery Rhyme: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star x2

Song: This is Big Big Big x2
This is big, big, big
This is small, small, small
This is short, short, short
This is tall, tall, tall
This is fast, fast, fast
This is slow, slow, slow
This is yes, yes, yes
This is no, no, no

The bells, parachutes and beach balls came out for as the kids played to more fun music
