こぶたぬきつねこ Neverending Shiritori Card

25 Sep

My daughter came home from Japanese School last week with a very clever card! Using the children’s song/shiritori “こぶたぬきつねこ” (pig-tanuki-fox-cat), they created a “never-ending card”. Here’s my daughter demonstrating how it works:

If you’re not familiar with the song, here are the lyrics:

こぶた、たぬき、きつね、ねこ

ブブブ、ポンポコポン、コンコン、ニャオ

(the second line is the sounds that the animals make)

Cute and clever, right?!? She has such a creative preschool teacher. (Another lady made something similar out of fabric, here).

Here’s how you can make your own neverending card (or “Fabulous Folds” card, according to Stampin’ Up):

And some videos of こぶた、たぬき、きつね、ねこ (kobuta,tanuki,kitsune,neko):

    Amazing! Thank you for all the videos, I’m showing these to my kids as soon as they wake up, how fun! I’ve been looking for things to do with my kids that aren’t in school yet to get them hearing more Japanese, this is perfect! (your daughter is adorable by the way!)

    So cute! I don’t think I’ve ever heard that song before, I like it!

    Thank you for all your searches and such good ideas. I love the neverending card! And I would be interested to know more about what they do at the japanese school.

What do you think? どうおもう?
