dancer 2

With my dancer, I cut out a blue dress and shoes. I used material flower trim for dress. For her arms I took two bendable straws and cut them below the bend. Glue or tape the arms under the sleeves.

This craft is really fun to make and the great thing is you can dress your body up to your preference. Have fun!

A Johnny Appleseed Song

(sung to Do you Know the Muffin Man)

Do you know the apple man,
the apple man, the apple man?
Do you know the apple man?
He planted apple seeds.

He wore a pot upon his head,
upon his head, upon his head.
He wore a pot upon his head.
His name was Johnny Appleseed.

John Chapman was his real name,
his real name, his real name.
John Chapman was his real name;
But, we call him Johnny Appleseed.
