Child Care Playlist, FACS Rocks!

The FACS Playlists

radio with musical notes

Yesterday I mentioned that I was working on a set of playlists for our FACS Soundtrack (I’m warming up to this as the name for our musical FACS project.) and that I would share that list with you today.  Here’s the playlist categories I’ve settled on:

  • Career Connections
  • Consumer Resources
  • Family and Parenting
  • Child Care
  • Food and Nutrition (Culinary Arts)
  • Hospitality and Tourism
  • Housing and Interior Design
  • Personal Development
  • Relationships
  • Textiles, Fashion & Apparel
  • Home Keeping
  • Special FACS

When I share my song selection each day, I’ll identify the the playlist(s) to which the song relates.  If any of you have any additional suggestions to make regarding the playlist categories, feel free to share them!

Today’s selection is in the Food and Nutrition (Culinary Arts) playlist.  Even though I’m a big Carole King fan, I had never heard this one before, but it’s so cute, I just had to share it.  Love the cartoon/video, too!  Hope you enjoy it!

Makes me smile!

In January it’s so nice
While slipping on the sliding ice
To sip hot chicken soup with rice
Sipping once, sipping twice
Sipping chicken soup with rice

In February it will be
My snowman’s anniversary
With cake for him and soup for me!
Happy once, happy twice
Happy chicken soup with rice

In March the wind blows down the door
And spills my soup upon the floor
It laps it up and roars for more
Blowing once, blowing twice
Blowing chicken soup with rice

In April I will go away
To far off Spain or old Bombay
And dream about hot soup all day
Oh, my, oh, once, oh, my, oh, twice
Oh, my, oh, chicken soup with rice

In May I truly think it best
To be a robin lightly dressed
Concocting soup inside my nest
Mix it once, mix it twice
Mix that chicken soup with rice

In June I saw a charming group
Of roses all begin to droop
I pepped them up with chicken soup!
Sprinkle once, sprinkle twice
Sprinkle chicken soup with rice

In July I’ll take a peep
Into the cool and fishy deep
Where chicken soup is selling cheap
Selling once, selling twice
Selling chicken soup with rice

In August it will be so hot
I will become a cooking pot
Cooking soup of course-why not?
Cooking once, cooking twice
Cooking chicken soup with rice

In September, for a while
I will ride a crocodile
Down the chicken soup-y Nile
Paddle once, paddle twice
Paddle chicken soup with rice

In October I’ll be host
To witches, goblins and a ghost
I’ll serve them chicken soup on toast
Whoopy once, whoopy twice
Whoopy chicken soup with rice

In November’s gusty gale I will flop my flippy tail
And spout hot soup-I’ll be a whale!
Spouting once, spouting twice
Spouting chicken soup with rice

In December I will be
A baubled, bangled Christmas tree
With soup bowls draped all over me
Merry once, merry twice
Merry chicken soup with rice

I told you once, I told you twice
All seasons of the year are nice
For eating chicken soup with rice

Cook up some chicken soup with rice for dinner tonight and I’ll see you tomorrow!
