For our new video podcast, we had a hooping party that was FABULOUS. We made hoops and lots of friends hooped. Some never tried before and found out how fun it is. We took a batch of hoops to a seniorsrsquo; center and they had a blast!. We also teach YOU how to make a hoop.

Let the silliness begin with a zipper song. Zipper songs make it easy to make up your own verses to a song. Lee Hays of the folk group, The Weavers used that term to refer to a song that has a line or word that will easily zip out and let you zip in a new line or word to create a new verse. ldquo;Itrsquo;s a Shamerdquo; is a great zipper song, making it one of those tunes that can take you all the way from Washington to California with fresh verses along the way. Itrsquo;s fun to make fun of things we donrsquo;t like to do, and to create wordplay nonsense, like Marcyrsquo;s ldquo;Itrsquo;s A Shame to put a pickle on a Sundayrdquo;. Sing-along, strum along, make your own verses. Find the word and chords HERE Then, meet the Banjo Puppets, 3 crazy characters who help Cathy play banjo with only 1 finger.
