Beep Game

Substitute these words in the songs "Old MacDonald" and "Mary Had a Little Lamb," and preschool hilarity will ensue.

Beep Game

  1. Choose a familiar story, song, or rhyme that your child has heard often.
  2. Read or recite the story, song, or rhyme, but substitute wrong words or names in obvious places.
  3. For example: "Old MacDonald had a car" or "Mary had a little dog."
  4. Have your child listen for the incorrect words and say "Beep!" when he hears one.
