So I saw these at Walmart in the craft section and just had to pick them up. They have a bunch of these little painted wooden animals in the craft section. I grabbed 5 monkeys so the kids could have a visual as we sing "5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" or "5 Little Monkeys Swinging from a Tree". Then they can take one away with each verse and I can ask them how many are left before we sing the next verse.
I attached a magnet to the back of each one so we can use them as fun magnets on the fridge when we are not using them for our songs.
And since they were only 50 cents I let each kid pick one out that they wanted as their special magnet. Ella picked the ladybug.
Aidan picked a giraffe.
I think these might be cute framed as a decoration in one of the kids rooms. Now I just have to find the right frames!
