- Watch or Listen. Check out our Come to Tinkergarten animated music video or listen to the song together.
- Move! Have fun moving and dancing like each animal as you listen (If kids are familiar with Tinkergarten, they'll be well practiced at this!). Add simple props to inspire creative movement. A sock tied around the waist with a string can become a squirrel tail and a piece of fabric can transform into butterfly wings!
Dance! Then, crank it up a notch by playing the Come to Tinkergarten dance remix!
- Invent verses and moves for new animals. Think about your favorite animals not mentioned in the recorded song. We come up with fresh lyrics for a new creature each week in Tinkergarten classes. Have fun coming up with movements and words that fit the animals and plants, or even the imaginary creatures, that your child loves most.
- Keep the party going! Keep on singing, dancing and feeling the joy of learning about new creatures!
- Share your moves! Share a video of your favorite animal dance with our Tinkergarten Facebook Community or tag @tinkergarten when you share with yours so we can celebrate with you!
