Mr. Rhythm’s Picnic Adventure Children’s Play, Music and Educational Activities

From: $19.95

Traveling by rowboats, the children arrive at Picnic Island,  where they discover swings, climb, and bounce balls.  They imitate bunnies hopping and count to 10 as the Ants march by.  When it threatens to rain they sing “Rain, Rain” go away, and of course out comes the EENCY-WEENCY Spider. They play a game of Ring around the Rosy coupled with Pop goes the Weasel and Duckie Duckie with lots of fun movement.

The Picnic has 19 prerecorded songs sung by children just like yours.  You decide on the number of songs to  include.   Incorporate the songs into your circle time right from the beginning, and the children will learn the words and motions with ease. Listen to 5 samples below.
