Mermaid Song and Twirling Mermaid Craft

Mermaid Song : I’d Like to be a Mermaid

I’d like to be a mermaid,

As pretty as can be,

Sitting on a rock,

In the middle of the sea.


Combing out my hair,

In the golden sun,

And swishing my fine tail,

Oh wouldn’t it be fun!

(sing to the tune of I had A little Nut Tree)

  4. I love this idea. We may change the song to be merman as handsome as can be with our boys and then keep it the same for our daughter (as we have four 3 year-olds (1 girl and 3 boys). Please share this post on Artsy Play Wednesday (open through Saturday night).
