The children I work with just love the giant trucks, but I couldn’t find any songs that are catchy/ less stimulating/ suitable. Over the weekend while we were having breakfast, I told my children that I need help writing a song about the dump truck, and the excavator. All I did was to give them one line, and they spontaneously just rhymed and created the entire song!
My son also suggested a name for us, Jacqueline Brown & Kids 😂
Lyric Sheets can be found on here:
This is a 1 chord song (Dm) and if you like, you can decorate it with a little bit of Am7 / A. It is a Great and easy tune to introduce children to natural minor too! You can sing it with body percussion, movements, and in call-and-response!
We hope our children know even dump trucks who are big and strong need to rest and take a break, in imparting the knowledge of self-care. When we are well rested, we have plenty to give ❤️
