Singing Sack


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm starting to make a singing sack... items that represent songs in a sack for the children to choose,, then all sing that song,


So far ideas are;


Spider- incy wincy spider

Bus- wheels on the bus

Animals- Old McDonald

Star- twinkle twinkle

Rabbit- hop little bunny

Doll- miss polly had a dolly


Has anyone else got any suggestions??


Many thanks! :o

Fish - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Frog - five little speckled frogs

teapot - I'm a little....

salt dough currant bun - five currant buns in the baker's shop

toy monkey - five little monkeys bouncing on the bed...


Running out of steam now!

In our song bag this week:


Sun for "The sun has got his hat on hip hip hip hooray"


Pink Sheep - sung to bar bar black sheep


"bar bar pink sheep, have you any spots, yes sir, yes sir, lots and lots, some on my fingers, some on my toes, and some on the end of my very big nose"


Aerosplane for "I'm the captain of the aeroplane"


also adapted Wheels on the Bus to "animals on the tractor" Dot :o

I can see this getting very big!!


I have more than one sack for this reason-a number rhyme sack, a nursery rhyme sack and then topic sacks .The number rhyme one is the most popular with the children.

sausage, bun tray, alien, duck, monkey, elephant, ice-cream and more

One of our family support workers is keen to make some singing sacks for our children's centre - I'll pass all of these great ideas on to her. Thanks
