Winners: Putumayo Name These Foods Contest
You were tasked with identifying the 10 foods my 5-year-old daughter spelled phonetically. Five winners were selected at random from the correct submissions…
- Timothy B. from Marietta, Pennsylvania
- Linda A. from Surrey, British Columbia
- Annie W-R from Racine, Wisconsin
- Kristen B. from Concord, California
- Jed G. from East Falmouth, Massachusetts
The Prizes: Each winner is taking home two Putomayo children’s music CDs!
Picnic Playground provides a veritable feast of international songs about food, cooking and healthy eating in a global gumbo of musical styles and languages.
American artist Jay Mankita’s opening song “Eat Like a Rainbow” sets the tone for the album, and the delectable songs that follow from Australia, Cuba, Denmark, France, Germany, Canada and Trinidad add to the exuberant musical smörgåsbord.
These fun, upbeat songs will help get kids moving and dancing to the rhythms. The artists on Picnic Playground sing so joyously about delicious food that you can almost taste it.
European Playground is a collection of 15 songs that takes families on a fun-filled cross-genre musical tour around the continent. Europe is a favorite destination for travelers who marvel at the continent’s rich cultural variety.
Europe is home to almost 50 countries, each with its own unique culture, history, traditions, food and music.
European Playground features a lively and engaging selection of family-friendly music from contemporary artists from these very diverse regions. The multilingual songs are easy to sing and dance along to, no matter what language you speak.
Thank you to everyone who participated. I worried that this contest had too many hoops to jump, but we received more than 200 entries, most of them correct. Thank you to Putumayo Kids for entertaining this contest and thank you Thinga-readers for your excellent hoop skills!
