The Itsy Bitsy Spider
The itty bitty spider
climbed up the waterspout.
Down can the rain
and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun
and dried up all the rain
and the itty bitty spider 
went up the spout again.

Patterns and Puzzles

  • Milk a cow: fill a rubber glove with milk and poke a small hole in the end of each finger. Have the children milk the “udders” into a small bucket.  If you have a stool, straw hats and rubber boots the kids will love to dress up.
  • Farm animal charades: each child can act like an animal and the others can guess.
  • Make butter! Place some heavy cream in a baby food jar. Have the kids shake the jar.  If desired, mix in a pinch of salt and a few drops of yellow food coloring.  Spread the butter on crackers for kids to taste.  If you insert a clean marble into the jar, it will not need to be shaken as long.
