Let's Play Music - Won't It Be Fun on Bonfire Night - Kids Songs for Firework Night

Most countries have a tradition of bonfires and fireworks to mark special occasions at various points in the year, but in the UK our Bonfire Night on November 5th has a particular historical relevance. The tradition marks and celebrates the failed attempt by Guy Fawkes to blow up the houses of Parliament back in 1605 which is referred to in the popular children’s rhyme Remember Remember the Fifth of November. Happily, these days its just a fun family celebration with traditional food, a bonfire and lots of sparkles and bangs!

Won’t It Be Fun On Bonfire Night! is a fun circle dance that anticipates this special celebration with great excitement,  but also with a little reminder about keeping safe too.
