March showers bring April flowers?

This weather has been incredible! And a little strange… But, it makes me happy to be able to go on nice walks and see all of the daffodils!

*I Clap My Hands
Suit actions to words

I clap my hands,
I touch my feet,
I jump up from the ground.
I clap my hands,
I touch my feet,
And turn myself around.

**Daffodils (use 5 flannel daffodils)

One little daffodil had nothing much to do,
Out popped another one, then there were two.

Two little daffodils were smiling at a bee,
Out popped another one, then there were three.

Three little daffodils were growing by the door,
Out popped another one, then there were four.

Four little daffodils were glad to be alive,
Out popped another one, then there were five.

Five little daffodils were wearing gold crowns,
They danced in the breeze in green satin gowns.
