came up with this quick song to the tune of The Ants Go Marching
as an October Maypole Dance for my
Our Kids Project. You can get instructions for making as
simple spider Maypole from a black umbrella and plastic table
HERE. Simply replace colored umbrella and table cloths
with black ones.
Do this with a deliberate
“freeze/walk” to the music. Take a long, low step on each of the
bold underlined words, freezing in between.
The Edge Of The Web
around the edge of the web but don’t….
Walk around the edge of the web but
don’t…. Get stuck
Don’t go into the middle my friend,
You’ll get stuck it will be the end
You can walk around the edge… of the
But don’t get stuck
Boom boom, boom (repeat)
If you don’t want to make a Maypole, you can make a spider web
on the floor with black removable tape or yarn - or even walk
around a circle rug. It really doesn't matter. Kids will have
fun with this whatever you do!
