Song Information

On My Island is sure to add some fun to your day with its upbeat tempo and cheerful rhythm. Some days we need to create our island to picture a different life when we are navigating the painful struggles of our everyday life. Allowing children to develop their island physically allows younger children to imagine a new life and older children to talk through what they see as a different world for the time being.

Supplies Needed

  • Brown paper bag
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Markers


  1. Cut out shapes from a brown paper bag
  2. Have children create their own sandcastles out of the shapes
  3. Decorate with sand, stickers, markers, or construction paper

As you work on this craft, listen to On My Island
