PLAY

Sounds All Around

When we step outside we hear so many sounds. When we focus our attention on listening instead of looking, we hear even more. Take your child outside and listen to everything you hear. You might want to make lists of sounds or play a guessing game. Look for opportunities to listen in other locations as well. What you hear in the city will be very different to what you hear in the country or in a park. It's a different way to explore the world!


SING

Drive Your Truck

(To the tune of: "Row Your Boat")

Drive, drive, drive your truck,
All around the town!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Up the hills and down.

Turn, turn, turn the key,
Make the engine roar!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Let’s go to the store.

Press, press, press the pedal,
Give the engine gas!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Now we’re going fast!

Turn, turn, turn the wheel,
That is how we steer!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Make a turn right here!

Push, push, push the brake,
Make the car slow down,
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Now we are in town!
