    One Bright Scarf
    We had fun with scarves after reading the windy-day book, One Monday:
    One bright scarf waiting for the wind to blow.
    Wiggle it high (reach to ceiling) and wiggle it low (down by your toes).
    Shake it fast and shake it slow.
    Where did it go? (Hide scarf in hands, behind back, etc.)
    One, two, three... release scarves into the air!

    There was a man lived in the moon, in the moon, in the moon.
    There was a man lived in the moon and his name was Aiken Drum.
    And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle.
    He played upon a ladle and his name was Aiken Drum.
    And his hair was made of spaghetti...

    And his nose was made of...

    Have the kids supply various foods for the body parts and see where it takes you!
