toddler time: prop song for FRUIT theme

at last week's Toddler Time, we read Eric Carle's  The Very Hungry Caterpillar, made paper loop caterpillars and played VHC hide & seek with felt fruits on the flannel board. 

I really wanted to add one more fun song & luckily, I stumbled onto Laurie Berkner's Fruit Salad Salsa. i knew that with the right fruit clipart, it would be a really fun prop song!

I found mangoes, papayas, pineapples, oranges, apples and bananas, mostly on etsy. i laminated my fruit & attached it to popsicle sticks to make puppets for this adorable song. 

don't forget a maraca! i was actually considering giving all the kids maracas too, but with two huge groups it would have been complete chaos. with a smaller group, i think it would be fun!

it was AMAZING!!!
