Singing Sacks

Recommended Posts

On the old forum at Under 5's there was a chat about singing sacks and singing cubes, which i can only vaguely remember. Can anyone give me more ideas for things to put in the sacks for each rhyme- because i can't remember i.e. red bus foir wheels on bus, teapot for i'm a little teapot etc.

 

Cheers

In the one I made a few years back I put in various beanie animals,

monkey - five little monkeys

frog - five little speckled frogs

duck _ five little ducks

farm animals - old macdonald

camel - alice the camel

cat (with a cardboard fiddle) hey diddle diddle

mouse - hickory dickory dock

bear - teddy bear,teddy bear

from felt I also made

humpty - humpty dumpty

scarecrow - dingle dangle

star - twinkle twinkle

spider - incey wincey

caterpillar - caterpillar,caterpillar

ladybird - ladybird, ladybird

I also made a boy and girl which can be used together or separately for a number of rhymes

there are some more but I can't remember them all!

hope this helps

Thanks for the ideas, I have a large cloth hanger with 12 pockets which I was racking my brains what to use it for, now I know. Pocket poems ( and songs) :D

 

Our children love 2 little dicky birds, which would be easy to make too :D:D

Hi Rosetta, Hand made I'm afraid, so you'll have to get the old sewing machine out or......... many £1 shops do pocket hangers ( used for shoes) which could be used. Some are material and others are plastic, see-through pockets.

 

Happy hunting. :D

 

Marion, Thanks for the links (again :D )

We have a songs and rhymes box. We put props for familiar songs and rhymes in the box, such as a bus, a spider, a fish etc. (all self explanatory). The box has a lid with a hole cut in the top. Either a member of staff or a child puts their hand in and chooses a prop and the children have to think of a song or rhyme.
