Book: Beach Day by Karen Lakin

Song: This is the Way We Play at the Beach
This is the way we play at the beach,
Play at the beach, play at the beach.
This is the way we play at the beach,
So early in the morning.

This is the way we dig in the sand…
This is the way we splash in the waves…
This is the way we lie in the sun…
(can take suggestions for other verses)

Song: “Icky Sticky Bubble Gum” – David Landau: Kids and Kitties

Song: “The Sea” (Tune: Wheels on the Bus)

The waves on the sea go up and down, up and down, up and down
The waves on the sea go up and down all day long.
The shark in the sea goes snap, snap, snap…
The crabs in the sea go pinch, pinch, pinch…
The boats on the sea go toot, toot, toot…

I’m going to the beach.
