Continuing with the Camp Song theme, here’s one that was requested.
It’s easy to learn and fun to sing-along to – especially around a campfire!
Enjoy the video and I’ll “see” you next week!
I’ve been wanting to make a video of this song for a while now. It’s a song I learned in camp a long time ago and I remember singing it for years after that. I had some doubts whether toddlers and preschoolers would enjoy this song, but as I was searching around YouTube to find it to double check the lyrics, I found a couple of videos with 3, 4 and 5 year olds having a great time singing it and doing the motions. So, I decided to go for it!
So here it is! Enjoy.
I first heard this song at the preschool where I work. My dear friend, Nadia, was leading a group of 3-year-olds on a walk outside and she was singing this song to them to and they were loving it! They had a blast waiting to hear their own name.
I, of course, could not include every child’s name in my version of the song, but hopefully after you hear it, you can have fun adding in your family’s names and singing it at home.
I didn’t learn this song until I was an adult. I was backstage with the cast of the show I was in, and we were all teaching each other fun theater warm-up games. And so I learned “We’re Going To Kentucky.” A real fun sing-along, move-along game for getting the jitters out, getting your energy up and just for having some fun!
I totally forgot about it though, until my sister was visiting and she started singing it to my baby girl. Voila! It all came back to me and I thought it was the perfect song for my video series.
So grab your little one and get ready to march, shake, twist and spin!
I’m keeping it short and sweet today as I’m one sleep deprived Mama!
But Mothers Day sure was fun, and made me think of this book/song. So here it is – for all of those who are Snuggle Puppies or have Snuggle Puppies. Enjoy!
