Once Upon a Book ~ Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site {Art & Music}

Book Summary: As the sun sets behind the big construction site, all the hardworking trucks get ready to say goodnight. One by one, Crane Truck, Cement Mixer, Dump Truck, Bulldozer, and Excavator finish their work and lie down to rest—so they'll be ready for another day of rough and tough construction play! This book has irresistible artwork and sweet, rhyming text.
(To the tune "The Farmer in the Dell")
The backhoe scoops the dirt,
The backhoe scoops the dirt,
Hi, Ho! Look at it go!
The backhoe scoops the dirt.
Extra verses:
The dozer moves the dirt...
The Loader dumps the dirt...
The dump truck carries away...
The cement mixer spins...
The crane moves up and down...

Bulldozer Painting:
For this activity you will need:
After you've taken measures to protect furniture and clothing, place a small amount of paint on the paper.

Bulldozer Painting Supplies 
Using the crafts sticks and combs, allow your tot to push and pull the paint around the paper.
The craft sticks and combs will make different textures on the paper. If you'd like, you can allow your tot to explore mixing colors by placing two colors on the paper. When your tot is finished, place the paper somewhere to dry. (If your tot likes this activity alot and you end up with a "Pretty Paper Factory", you may want to consider placing some of the pieces in your Collage Box.)
