MOOSE SONG (variation)
(Have audience repeat each line after you, and use arm movements to desribe each line)
There was a great big moose
He liked to drink a lot of juice
There was a great big moose
He liked to drink a lot of moose

CHORUS:
Singing way oh-oh
Way-oh way-oh-way-oh
Way oh-oh
Way-oh way-oh way-oh %

The moose's name was Fred
He liked to drink his juice in bed
The moose's name was Fred
He liked to drink his juice in bed

CHORUS

He drank his juice with care
But he spilt it in his hair
He drank his juice with care
But he spilt it in his hair

CHORUS

Now there's a sticky moose
His hair is full of juice
The moose is on the loose
With sticky hair from juice

CHORUS
Craft
MOOSE MAGNET
Use an outline of a moose from clip art. Print the moose on white cardstock without the antlers. Instead, make pre-cut felt antlers and have children glue them to the moose after coloring their moose with markers. Provide snips of craft hair for the moose's head, google eyes if desired, magnetic tape for the back of the moose and have everyone name their moose magnet!
