I think this is the printable I get the most requests for, so after checking and double checking that it was in fact ‘currant’ not ‘current’ I finally whipped up a batch of currAnt buns for you!
And if that wasn’t enough they come with some coins too so you can set up your own little baker’s shop like we did. Though I think my baker is the cutest one around, don’t you?
We put out puppets on clothes pegs this time so we could easily get them on and off our ‘shop display’ (aka a cardboard box).
We spent all afternoon buying things from our little baker, and singing the song over and over and over.
I also co-opted my sick kids to help me sing to this crazy animation we made, just in case you don’t know how the song goes. Please ignore poor singing and any random renovation banging!
Here are the full words that we sing:
Five Currant Buns
Five currant buns in a baker’s shop,
Round and fat with a cherry on the top!
Along came a girl with some money one day,
Bought a currant bun and took it away.
Four currant buns in a baker’s shop…
Three currant buns in a baker’s shop…
Two currant buns in a baker’s shop…
One currant bun in a baker’s shop…
We interchange ‘girl/boy’ with someone’s name so they know when it is their turn to choose a bun and when we get to the end we make a big deal of mixing up and cooking another batch of buns so we can sing it all again!
