Hi, I just read the article in Family Fun and wanted to send you a song I clapped to when I was young called Big Mac - Sharla
Thanks Sharla! We are looking for the hand movements to go along with this for everyone to see!
Fantastic one sent in by Nicki... "We used to do this on the playground all the time" For this one you don't clap with anyone but everyone does the same hand motions all together in the air with your finger while singing the song
Come little Bunny
Now here is the fun part: You keep repeating the song, but at each line, you just hum the tune and do the hand motions.
So the second time you sing the song, you don't say "In a cabin by the woods", you just hum it and make the hand gesture.
The third time, you leave out both 1st and 2nd lines (humming only) do just the hand gesture, sing the rest.
You keep going until there are no words, just humming and gestures and that's how it ends.
Did you know?Wow! Research now shows....
