About the Alice the camel song

“Alice the Camel” is a toe-tapping nursery rhyme that has been entertaining us for generations.

What’s the scoop?

Alice is no ordinary camel. She’s got humps, and with each verse, she loses one! Sounds like a countdown party in the desert, right?

As we venture with Alice, we’re not just traveling over dunes and oases; we’re also going on a mathematical journey. Yep, Alice is your kiddo’s fun new math tutor!

What can your child learn from it?

Hang on tight, because Alice is all about numbers and subtraction! As her humps disappear one by one, your child will practice counting backward. It’s a fantastic way to introduce the concept of “taking away” in a memorable and playful manner.

For even more learning fun, you can use stuffed animals or even fingers to represent each of Alice’s humps. Count along as they “disappear”, making it a tactile experience for your child.

Feeling dramatic? Act it out!

Be Alice and let your little ones be the explorers, following you through your imaginary desert. Add some makeshift humps with cushions or pillows and remove them as you go along with the song!

Don’t forget to talk about what happened when Alice lost all her humps. Great chance for a cheeky twist and to discuss how she turned into a horse!

Until next time, keep counting, keep exploring, and most importantly, keep having fun!
