Song:
The Grand Old Duke of York

Oh, the grand old Duke of York
He had ten thousand men
He marched them up to the top of the hill
and Marched them down again
And when you're up, you're up
And when you're down, you're down
And when you're only half way up
You're neither up nor down



Craft:

I found a Gumball machine coloring picture online here.  After printing it out, I then used whiteout on the gumballs.  Then I copied them.  Glue, crayons, and construction paper. Volia! Craft for today.
