Pull out your PomPoms & You Can Drums, pound the wall, clap your hands, stomp your feet, as you enjoy finding your beat.

Once you create a beat, add lyrics about the dream you hope to achieve, goals to make it come true, and ways to do good along the way!

“Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music.”
Ronald Reagan

As you create, pull out your PomPoms, You Can Drums, dance, sing, & play the A-BUN-DANCE GAME:

BABOON’S SONG:

Shake your pompoms.
Shake and know
You guys are Heroes!
Thank you soo—

Shake your pompoms.
Drum. Dream. Smile.
With hearts of stars lit
We will all go miles!”

BABY BABOON’S SONG:

Hands off your face
Tongue on your nose
One eye open
One eye closed

Celebrate life
Flip your frown
Hook up elbows
Dance around

Love out loud—
Be alive
Treasure your chest
Bum Bump – High Five!

NOW GO… GO…
Dream. Believe.
Catch CATCH-M
We will succeed!

FROG’S SONG:

Ribbit. Ribbit. Dream it. Live it.
Hop it low.
Hop it high.
Hip bump rumps.
Jump to the sky.

TERMITE’S SONG:

Use your brain
Move your feet
No fear just fun

Dung Beetle’s DoDo Game

“I want to take all the pain I feel and celebrate and turn it around.”
Stevie Wonder

FINALLY, play Dung Beetle’s Do-Do Game. Baby Baboon didn’t want to be discouraged when she didn’t know what to do, so after she filled her heart with sweet songs, she created Dung Beetle’s DoDo Game. She wanted to remember she could turn any “What DO you Do with a DO-DO Dilemma”  into a “DO GOOD” too!

WHEN FACED WITH LIFE’S TOUGH QUESTIONS like “WHAT DO YOU DO?” PLAY DUNG BEETLE’S DoDo GAME!

To play, the game is similar to Duck Duck Goose. 

Everyone sits in a circle. The person who is it, goes around the circle tapping heads with their hand or a Do-Do Ball. (Any ball, with an added smile or even colored brown.) As the person taps heads, they say – “You Can…” “You Can…” “You Can…” – When they pick a person to be it – They tap or drop the Do-Do Ball in their lap & say “DO GOOD!” Then they run around the circle to get to the open seat. If they get tagged or touched by the Do-Do Ball before they sit, they fill in the circle & the winner goes around the circle. End the game with a group shout out, “No matter what happens, let’s DO GOOD together & have a blast as you DO!”
