(To the tune of Animal Fair)
I went to the county fair.
The pigs and the sheep were there.
When food I demanded,
We went to a stand,
And got _____ on a stick to share.
The song is kind of catchy. By the second or third round most of the kids were singing along with me.
As we sang I would use my stick to prop up the food that we were using for that verse. This worked really well. We have several puppets that have sticks to move their arms around. The stick has the soft side of velcro at the top to help hold it in place in a pocket at the bottom of the puppet's hand. So, I placed the rougher side on the back of my pieces and just slapped the stick down on each piece as we sang. You could easily make this device with any stick-like object. And, if you are like us, you have quite a bit of that soft side of velcro floating around.
