stephmodo: Petit Bonhomme

Petit Bonhomme

• 22 January 2010

When we attended church in France I spent a good chunk of time in the nursery making sure my munchkin felt comfortable. It was a good chance for me to try and communicate with the other two women helping out...the prospect of only 2 women hearing me make a fool out of myself is not nearly as daunting as other scenarios :)

On a particular Sunday, one of the other nursery leaders brought in all the fixings for a "Petit Bonhomme". While she sang this song she cut up fruit, vegetables and everything else and in the end created a delicious masterpiece. Isn't it darling?

C'est un petit bonhomme petit petit petit
Sa tĂȘte est une pomme son nez est un radis
Ses yeux sont des groseilles sa bouche est un bonbon
Et il a pour oreilles deux tranches de melon
Sa jambe est une banane son autre jambe aussi
A la main une canne en sucre de pays
Et une longue barbe et un joli chapeau
Deux feuilles de rhubarbe lui font un long manteau
C'est un petit bonhomme petit petit petit...


  1. So sweet. And I understand completely the feeling of relief having to speak French in front of just a few people.

  2. So lovely, it reminds me of Japenese bento boxes. I adore sending my kids with their bento boxes to school. I have never looked at food the same way since getting our boxes!


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
