|Finger Rhyme||5 Shiny Robots
Five shiny robots, playing marbles on the floor,
One went home and then there were four,
Four shiny robots, playing in a tree,
One went home and then there were three,
Three shiny robots with nothing left to do,
One went home and then there were two,
Two shiny robots, think of something fun,
One went home and there was one,
One shiny robot pretending to be a hero,
His mother called him home and then there were zero

|Craft 1:||Finger Robots
I technically combined two different craft inspirations (Inspiration 1 and Inspiration 2)to come up with this little guy.
If you are contemplating buying the Osmo…DO IT. They are so much fun. My coworker had to pull me away from it when I first tried it out. The kids LOVED this station and many parents inquired where they could purchase it. Osmo recently rolled out an edition for the Kindle (much easier on wallet than purchasing an Ipod).
Code-a-Pillar’s are also fantastic. I had toddlers and older kids interested in this device. Toddlers liked to chase it while my big kids tried to make different combinations with all the pieces. Super awesome as it starts to teach coding at an early age.
