Little Ol' Wagon

Listen to the whole song on Sticky Bubble Gum or hear it here:


Little ol' wagon painted red
Little ol' wagon painted red
Little ol' wagon painted red
Skip to my lou, my darling!

Spoken: Ok, let's change the wagon's color. What's the magic word?

Repeat many times - changing the color each time. We use magic words that the kids supply - anything from Abracadabra! to Peanut Butter and Jelly! On the cd, Macaroni Soup! is the phrase that pays!

To make your color cards for the wagon, cut rectangles to fit your wagon from colored paper or color paper with markers or crayons. Make one with stripes or polka dots, too! Kids find them humorous! To make the wagon last longer you can laminate it and the color cards and attach velcro dots.

This is a good family game - your child will delight in having family members let THEM take a turn to be the "teacher."

Age Range: Toddler through Kindergarten

Purpose: Color identification, cooperative play
