Here is the video of the Dixie Chicks (well, just Natalie) singing the song at one of their concerts. I actually went to that concert here in Chicago. It was the first time I had ever heard the song and immediately fell in love with it.

Here's the recipe if anyone is interested:
2 1/2 C Flour
1/2 C Salt
1 T baby powder
3 T oil
2 packets Kool-aid - the ones without sugar added, any flavor
1 1/2 C boiling water
Stir all ingredients together. You'll have to keep adding more flour (sometimes more than a cup) until the playdough is no longer sticky.

As promised, here's more footage of Evan dancing to the Wiggles. The first one is the Shimmie Shake again. I tried to get the TV in the video so you can see Evan really trying to imitate some of the dance moves. You can also even hear him change pitches with the music. The second one is Old Man Tucker. On the movie, the main Wiggle is wearing a cowboy hat and dancing. Evan decided to grab his firefighter hat and use that as his prop. At the end of my video, Evan lays down on the floor, which is what the Wiggles character does at one point in the song. What an entertainer!

Here is the newest video of Evan dancing to the Wiggles. We bought him a new DVD for Christmas called You Make Me Feel Like Dancing. It has some really upbeat songs from the 60's on up. Evan has really gotten into this DVD and he's dancing and singing along more than ever. The song in the background is called the Shimmie Shake and was made to look like The Beatles (it even has an introduction like the Ed Sullivan Show). Make sure to turn up the volume so you can hear him singing a little. He actually isn't into it as much as he normally is in this video, but I hope to get a better one soon.
