Songs
Bell on the Cow
Tune of: The wheels on the bus
The bell on the cow goes,
Clang, clang, clang.
Clang, clang, clang.
Clang, clang, clang.
The bell on the cow goes,
Clang, clang, clang,
All the way home.

Additional verses:
The tail on the cow goes,
Swish, swish, swish.

The eyes on the cow go,
Blink, blink, blink.

The voice of the cow says,
Moo, moo, moo.

Craft
Cow Necklace:
Copy cow shape on stiff paper and cut out one for each child. Punch a hole in the middle of the back. Cut 14" piece of yarn or string for each child. Let the children put thumbprint spots on the cows using stamp pads (water based ink works best). Clean child's fingers with wet wipes. Have children put a string through the hold on the cow. Tie ends together to make necklace.
