2. Add water to cover the paper have children mix with hands until consistency of oatmeal. This takes quite a long time so the children can take turns.

7. Keeping a piece of newspaper on top, turn container over and carefully peal container off the now thin layer of newspaper goop.

Put Trash in the Trash Can
Tune: The Wheels on the Bus

Litter is trash that wasn’t put away,
Wasn’t put away, wasn’t put away,
Litter is trash that wasn’t put away,
In the trash can.

I put my trash in the trash can,
The trash can, the trash can,
I put my trash in the trash can,
Right where it belongs!
