Moon Song
Song to the tune of "Farmer in the Dell"


We're going to the moon,
We're going to the moon.
Put on your helmet, climb on board;
We're blasting off real soon.

We;re walking on the moon,
We're walking on the moon.
We'll plan a flag and find some rocks.
We're walking on the moon

From the The Big all year Book of Holidays and Seasonal Celebrations
Iím A Little Robot
(I'm a Little teapot)
I'm a little robot, watch me walk,
Push my button, now I can talk.
When I get all oiled up I can work.
Even if I have to jerk.

I'm a little robot, watch me go,
Sometimes fast, sometimes slow
When I get all worn out you can see,
All I need is a new battery.

Craft
Rockets
Make a cone shape from construction paper and tape to make a rocket ship. Paint it silver, add glue and glitter stuff with colorful shredded paper with some strips dangling out the bottom. Run your rocket ship with you through the sprinkler and imagine you're traveling through an ice crystal shower on the moons of Jupiter, cool spots of the universe!
