Little Bunny Foo Foo

I remember my sister Mary teaching me the song "little bunny foo foo" quite  few years ago - complete with hand actions.  As I recall, we weren't all that little...and she learnt it when we were on choir camp!!! Obviously the singing of it was superior then!!

Anyhow, when I made another bunny for a bangle today, he looked so small and cute as he hopped through the grass, that little bunny foo foo came to mind!

He looks much too sweet to bop field mice on the head however. What do you think?  And if you don't know what I'm talking about, check out the Youtube video below for a child safe version of the little song.  Yes, some Youtube videos for Little bunny foo foo contain warnings of blood and violence!

Rest assured, my sister and I sang it much better!!! and the actions just make it!!

See what a huge influence my sister has had on my life???

Maybe this could be the start of a new series of story/song illustrations as bangles! Any suggestions for a song from your childhood that you'd like to see on a bangle?

LOVE IT! Our Canadian version that I grew up with was "Little Rabbit Foo Foo". I guess we're more formal:)

I especially love the grasses!

I didn't realise there was a moral to the story!!

How about Goodnight Mr Moon next??

I'm sure learning the moral of the tale has changed both your lives Mary and Caulie!! What a good lesson to learn :=D

PS I bet you were so intrigued weren't you Caulie! Just couldn't resist watching and finding out.
