Party On The Clouds

When it’s storming outside
And you hear loud thunder
Don’t be scared little one
But it’s okay to wonder.

Think as if there’s a party
And clouds are playing drums
Don’t worry about a thing
When you hear those dum-dums!

Yes, it’s big beautiful clouds
Playing a concert up in Cloudland
The fans clap and shout
For their favorite cloud band.

When you hear lots of thunder
Be happy! Nature is singing live!
When you are out of fingers to number
They’re just giving loud high fives!

Don’t be scared little one
From lightning up high in the sky
The concert needs sound and lights
And some wind that goes by.

Next time you hear thunder
Don’t go hide under your cover
Join the party with the clouds
Before it’s gone, before it’s over.

Play Fun, Play Dough!

Play Dough

Play dough, play dough,
It’s so fun to play,
You can make a bird,
A beautiful blue jay!

Yes way!

Who needs all these toys
When you become the maker
Of a colorful house,
That lays on a green acre.

I’m not a story maker!

You can make a star,
You can make a snake
You can make a bunny
You can make a cake!

How cool is that?

I know someone
That would make trees
And turtles and flowers
And tiny little bees.

Trust me please!

I can make a butterfly,
I can make a fish,
The funniest part though,
Is when smashed and squished.

It’s like jelly fish!

Let’s not buy toys
For sometimes I say,
Just get some play dough
It will save your day!

It will be okay!
