My daughter loves singing & playing her instruments right now, so this will be a lot of fun. I will have to see if any local high school have any type of concerts going on.

Ok so I just put my name on the linky thingy with nothing else. Oops. Anyway, I just discoved two new books for my 3 year old. They really have nothing to do with the theme, but I want to share anyway so thanks for reading. :)
#1 "The Spiffiest Giant in Town", by Julia Donaldson
Talks about selflessness and kindness. Made me cry.
#2 "The Big Blue Spot", by Peter Holwitz
Great for color mixing, and an art project. Plus it is crative and funny.

On the theme...I made some bean bags with rice (doesn't sprout after it ends up in a kid's mouth) the other day. I found some good songs that tell you what to do with the bean bags "on your head, nose" etc. Very fun

Don't worry about the empty link Tricia, I fixed it. And thanks for the great book suggestions. Feel free to share your bean bag songs with us as well, sounds like fun!
