Kids Corner | Mountains

Kids' Corner is the Andy Zanca Youth Empowerment Program's family radio hour created by kids, for kids. Our theme this month is mountains. During this program, you will hear fun songs about mountains, poems recited by students, a read-aloud book, follow along with an art project, hear our recipe of the month, and much more.

This Mountain Themed Show included the following: 

"The Happy Wanderer" by Bill Staines
"Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
"Rocky Mountain High" by John Denver
"She Left Me Standing on the Mountain" by Tatiana Hargreaves
"The Song of Magic Mountain" by Lisa Dancing-Light
"Sing to the Mountain" by Elephant Revival

Supplies Needed for Art Activity:
Glue Stick
Multiple colors of paper

Recipe of the Month: Caramely, crunchy bananas
Ingredients: corn flakes, bananas, and caramel sauce. You can make your own caramel or get it store bought.
Steps: First, slice the bananas, roll them in crushed corn flakes, place on a lined baking sheet, and drizzle with caramel sauce. Broil in the oven for a few minutes until the caramel sauce is bubbling. Watch them carefully so they won’t burn! You can eat them by themselves or on top of ice cream. Enjoy!

Family Challenge: We have been having some very cold temperatures, so let’s make frozen bubbles! I bet you have blown bubbles outside before. Have you? Well, I also bet there’s a good chance you haven’t blown frozen bubbles! It’s best to do this on a day when it’s really cold, like below zero. The bubbles will still freeze at warmer temperatures but they won’t freeze as fast. Try to find the coldest day of the month to do this experiment. Here is the recipe for the best freezable bubbles: combine one cup of water with 2 tablespoons of corn syrup, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 2 tablespoons of Doctor Bronner's soap. To make your bubbles, combine all the ingredients in an old bubble bottle that has a bubble wand. Blow your bubbles on the ground or any other outdoor surface and watch them freeze.
