Watch Mary and Jack sing “Hey Diddle Diddle” in a brand new video, and then try crafting your own scene based on the song. Activities like this one are terrific for exercising creativity, comprehension and problem-solving. Watch and sing along to the video, and then discuss the characters and scene you’re recreating in the craft.
