Cars

Today we had fun with cars.  We played with cars, make crafts, and had fun snacks.

Music: Vroom Vroom
(tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)

Vroom-vroom! Zoom-zoom little car,
How I wonder where you are.

Driving down the streets all day,
Stop, then go — you never stay.

Vroom-vroom! Zoom-zoom little car,
How I wonder where you are.
