Bugs Around the Room 

A bee is buzzing around the room,
Buzz buzz, buzz buzz.

Sing a Song of Sunshine 

Sing a song of sunshine,

No matter what you do.
Just sing and sing and sing a song,
And let the sun shine through!
 
Tune: Sing a Song of Sixpence
 

A Camping We Will Go 

A camping we will go, a camping we will go.
Hi ho we’re off to the woods,
A camping we will go.

Hi ho we’re off to the woods,
A camping we will go.

Before we go to the beach.
