Flowers and Birds

I found this flexible flower at Target in the dollar bins. It is a fun visual aid for “In the Leafy Treetops” or the 2nd verse of “Give Said the Little Stream”, because you can make it lift and lower it’s head. It is also a fun conducting “baton” for a child.

I made one of these “chicks in a basket” crafts a few years ago. I have since lost it after several moves, but I am thinking of making another one for all the sweet springtime and bird songs in the Children’s Songbook. It is very easy to make – a glove sticking up from a basket. You can stick your fingers through the bottom of the basket and into the glove, then wiggle them around as you sing the song. The junior primary is enchanted by this. Here is the how-to from Family Fun.
