Flannel Friday: All The Little Bunnies

4 Comments

Happy Flannel Friday! When it comes to storytime music, Kathy Reid-Naiman is an unstoppable hit machine. You could close your eyes, pick any one of her many CDs of your shelf, set it on random, and I guarantee it would make an excellent addition to your storytime.

“All The Little Bunnies” is track 11

I’m making a bunch of these finger puppets using this adorable (free!) pattern from The Purl Bee,

but you could use any bunny finger puppets, stuffed bunnies, heck, you could just have all the kids make bunny ears with their fingers (a la little bunny foo foo).

Either way, have them sit on their bottoms with their knees bent and their feet flat. Explain that their knees are the top of a hill (where the bunnies have their little burrows). When I have played this song in the past, I play the farmer. I tell my storytimers  that “when I come looking for the bunnies who ruined my garden” they should “hide in underground!”

I’ve done this a few times, and they never let me do only 1x through. They demand “again, again, AGAIN!” Since the track is only about 45 seconds, it only makes sense to go a few rounds.  I generally try to stop at 5 rounds. Any more than that and you risk losing control of room.

Check out Sharon is our lovely host this week!

Cheers!
