September 26

Sing a Song

X marks the spot

X marks the spot
With a dot, dot, dot
And a dash, dash, dash
And a big question mark.
Tickle (child's name) up,
Tickle (child's name) down,
Tickle (child's name) all around!
Crack an egg!
Crack another egg!
With a hug,
And a squeeze,
And a tap on your knees


Sesame Street: African Alphabet with Kermit

Try This

X is for X-marks-the-spot
Help your child find Africa on a map. Then find your own country, state, and city on a map. Draw a map of your neighborhood. Make it exciting by turning it into a treasure map. It's fun to get outside and look for neighborhood treasures together!
