We’re going on a Treasure Hunt

It’s gonna be really fun

We’re not scared

Because we have a map!

What do we have first/next? _

We can’t go over it,

We can’t go under it

Can’t go around it

Gotta go through it!

Swish, Swish, Swish

The tall, tall grass of the Perilous Plains!

Winding River – splish splash

Snake Jungle – sweep, sweep

Misty Marsh – Squish squash

Danger Cave –and there might be a bear! tip toe tip toe

Shipwreck Beach – and now we’ve got to dig! Dig dig dig!


The Kindest Kid I know -
(rhythm of the Grand Old Duke of York)

Oh - the kindest kid I know –
he had ten thousand friends!
He marched them up to the top of the hill
and he marched them down again....
and when you're up you're up
and when you’re down you’re down
and when you're only halfway up you're neither up nor down.
