Go totally bananas with Tea Time Monkeys! Calypso music, a tropical party and lots of fruit in this fun summer song for kids!
The idea for this song comes from a friend’s son. He’d heard and liked Biscuits, and requested that we make a song about bananas. A couple of days later this was the result. Thanks for the inspiration, Lorcan!
Flip and Flops’s tropical accessories!
For the calypso mood, we decided Flop definitely needed some maracas. These were quite easy to make. I used an egg-shaped styrofoam base and a wooden skewer and covered them in felt. Then I just added some bright coloured ric-rac trim and they were done!
Materials for making the maracas.
The finished article!
