This is the Way We Paint!
This is the way we stir the paint,
stir the paint, stir the paint
(make stirring motions)
This is the way we stir the paint
So early in the morning.
This is the way we . . . (dip our brush, paint the paper, blow it dry, frame the picture)
I have a crayon, I’ll give it to you.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of blue.
I have a crayon, a lovely little fellow.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of yellow.
I have a crayon, it’s here on my head.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of red.
I have a crayon, we can draw a circle.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of purple.
I have a crayon, what do I see?
Here is my crayon, an orange one for me.
I have a crayon, the best ever seen.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of green
Five Little Paintbrushes
Five little brushes went out to paint.
One painted white, then ran away in fright.
The second painted red and jumped under the bed.
The third painted green then fled the scene.
The fourth painted black then ran around in back.
The fifth painted yellow and felt so mellow,
He invited everyone back to begin again.
Cinco brochitas salieron a pintar
Una pinto blanco, ya todas les gusto tanto
La segunda pinto rojo y brinco sin mucho enojo
La tercera pinto verde y no lo hizo adrede.
La cuarta pinto negro y todas corrieron del miedo.
La quinta pinto amarillo y en eso aparecio un grillo.
Y ella invito a todas a comenzar otra vez.
