    It's a bit of a stretch, but "oranges and lemons, say the bells of St Clement's"?

    "swinging on my new playgym" (Peter Combe song I remember vaguely)

    "kookaburra sits in the old gum tree"

    umm... that's all I can think of for now!

    Chasing Daylight...

    ... Round and round the garden (like a teddy-bear)
    ... Shoo fly, don't bother me
    ... Butterflies (Wiggles song)
    ... Mr Frog jumped out of his pond one day
    ... Here comes a bear (Wiggles)
    ... Wiggle woo (There's a worm at the bottom of the garden)

    That's all I can think of for now.

    ~We are going on a bear hunt (you could pretend around the garden, and use the obstacles in the garden as the obstacles if that makes sense)

    ~5 little ducks went out one day (I can still remember singing this to ris & Paris with Kel in the car as they were synchronized cryers LOL)

    ~Mulberry Bush

    ~Mary had a little lamb

    ~Lavenders Blue

    ~Little Bo Peep

    ~You are my sunshine (this is one of Paris' fave)

    Thats all I can think of for now...most of them are "outdoorsey songs" but only a few are garden songs iykwim.

    All done now whew.... took a bit of time because I'm a bit anal LOL not like half of them won't be doing something else because its hard to keep them focused lol....

    But I've got a great craft too which is good.... We have pipe cleaners & I'm tying a know in the top of them & threading pedals on there so they make a flower then knotting below the petals. As the majority of children are 15mnths to 2 years I thought this might not be too hard LOL
