hat of paper


this week, the Documented Life Project challenged us to use numbers,
and it reminded me of a fun song my little dutch sweetie 
used to sing to our kids when they were younger.




it's a very popular counting song about a sweet little paper hat.





the song doesn't include a bear or a heart-balloon….
but, when you're dealing with kids and paper hats,
a bear and a heart-balloon really are must-haves, don't you think?  
 :))


here's the rough translation:
one, two, three, four, 
hat of, hat of,
one, two, three, four,
hat of paper.

it's a really cute little song and it sounds so much better in Dutch.
especially if it's being sung by someone with a sweet little Dutch accent. xox
you can listen to it here!


{supplies for the week thirty-four DLP challenge:

I never would have thought to put a cute little paper hat on the bear. You are so creative! I've just joined a Facebook group about journaling in our Bibles...I bet you'd enjoy it. There are some really talented ladies there who draw and illustrate scripture as they study their Bible. Here's the URL: https://www.facebook.com/groups/675075232583189/?fref=nf
I look forward to your next post!
