Song: Don’t Wash My Blanket by Hap Palmer

Activity: My Blanket– Give the kids scarves (mini blankets!) and do the corresponding actions along with the rhyme.

At breakfast time, oh me, oh my.
Milk spilled on my blanket – oh me, oh my.
Have to wash my blanket (Crumple up the scarf and pretend to wash it.)
And lay it out to dry. (Open up the scarf and lay it out flat.)

At lunch time, oh me, oh my.
Peanut butter spilled on my blanket – oh me, oh my.
Have to wash my blanket (Crumple up the scarf and pretend to wash it.)
And lay it out to dry. (Open up the scarf and lay it out flat.)

At snack time, oh me, oh my.
Mustard spilled on my blanket – oh me, oh my.
Have to wash my blanket (Crumple up the scarf and pretend to wash it.)
And lay it out to dry. (Open up the scarf and lay it out flat.)

At dinner time, oh me, oh my.
Spaghetti spilled on my blanket – oh me, oh my.
Have to wash my blanket (Crumple up the scarf and pretend to wash it.)
And lay it out to dry. (Open up the scarf and lay it out flat.)

At bedtime, oh me, oh my.
Cookie crumbs fell on my blanket – oh me, oh my.
Have to shake my blanket out (Open up scarf and shake it.)
No time to wash or dry. (shake head no.)
I need my blanket. (hug blanket.)
It’s time for beddy bye. (pretend to sleep.)
