April Fool’s Day can be a whole new kind of crazy. Practical jokes often fill the day. Other day’s need a little of the laughter that occurs on April Fool’s Day. Consider sharing these songs in an intergenerational group of school aged children on up. Most were recommended by those in senior living communities.
- Boom, Boom Ain’t it Great to be Crazy
- I Love to Laugh
- Mairzy Doats
- On Top of Spaghetti
- Do Your Ears Hang Low?
