    Big Brown Box

    A big brown box is, oh, such fun
    To play with in the backyard sun!
    Step inside, and there you are—
    Zooming to a far-off star!
    Turn it down and crawl inside—
    A perfect spot in which to hide
    From robbers who might just be near.
    Stop! Be still so they won’t hear.
    Fill it up! Let it down.
    Chug-a-chug—ride off to town!
    Turn it up—pretend to float.
    Come on, mates, let’s sail our boat!
    Mother calls while we are here,
    “How do those children disappear?”
    A big brown box is, oh, such fun
    To play with in the backyard sun!

    Wiggle Woggle Toy

    To make this wiggle woggle toy, you will need: plastic egg, lump of Silly Putty or clay, felt-tip pens, and glue.

    1. 1.

      Pack lump of Silly Putty or clay into larger “half” of egg.

    2. 2.

      Glue two halves together.

    3. 3.

      Draw eyes and hair on top part of egg and smiling mouth on bottom part.

    The wiggle woggle toy will always roll to a standstill right side up because the Silly Putty weights the bottom part.
