Sleeping Bunnies

A new favourite song of J’s, from daycare …
See the little bunnies sleeping
Till its nearly noon
Come and let us gently wake them
With a merry tune
They’re so still, Are they ill?
Wake up soon.
[Children lay still on floor for all this first part of the song]

Hop little bunnies hop, hop, hop.
Hop little bunnies hop, hop, hop.
[Children jump up and hop around]
Then, sing it again with different animals, for example,
See the little crocodiles sleeping … Snap little crocodiles, snap, snap, snap
butterflies … fluttering
frogs … jumping
It is great practise for J to lay still until the cue to jump up.  Being still if difficult for J (and most toddlers).
You can watch a video of the song to hear the tune.

So cute. And thanks for sharing the link to the video. Sam and I are going to watch that so we can learn a new song.
