'Recycling'. Funny and fast song for children. Lyrics included

(0)
Fun song and video to help children learn about the things that can be recycled or reused. Watch it in class as a fun interlude or as part of a project. I would suggest that most children of 12 or under would enjoy this. Contains clips from a number of recycling videos currently on YouTube including the Peppa Pig episode. I did some research as to what can actually be recycled. Some were surprising. There are also some funny ones in there ('tunes and notes ... daddy's old jokes'). Look out for a guest appearance by Prof. Brian Cox. I've written seven albums for children plus loads of songs that circulate on YouTube, BandCamp, Spotify, iTunes, Soundcloud and other places. Lots of other songs, lyrics, chord sheets, sheet music and videos for children on TES. Words and music by me Dr. Liam Maloy (AKA Johnny Raindrop). www.johnnyandtheraindrops.co.uk
