We had a smashing fun Animal Week at Birkdale today. Although only one family participated, both kids had a tremendous time with their mom, the staff and me. Mrs. Turtle (our soft, snuggly, turtle puppet) came to visit with the song Turtle in My Shell, and she was a big hit with the little ones. We sang Listen to the Water, went for a lap ride with Donkey Riding, and moved around the room to Elephants Marching. Momma Frog and the entire frog family (our Instrument of the week – the Thai Wooden Frogs) came along for a visit as we sang Little Green Frog. Our jam songs were also animal themed, and everyone had a fabulous time.
