One Bright Scarf
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!

Popcorn Kernels (w/ scarves)
Popcorn kernels, popcorn kernels, in the pot, in the pot.(Crunch scarf into a ball)
Shake them, shake them, shake them,
Shake them, shake them, shake them
'Til they POP, 'til they POP! (Release scarf into the air!)

Craft—Watercolor Painting

Friends enjoyed painting with liquid watercolors and salt. Some added a penguin and/or hearts in honor of our theme and the hero of The Chilly Penguin.
