The melody of this “Kawaii Hand Wash Challenge”, widely known as “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” and the “ABC Song” today, is assumed to have derived from an 18th century French folk song called “Ah! vous dirais-je, Maman” (composer unknown).
Japanese lyrics were written by a pediatric nurse at a Japanese preschool to help teach kids how to wash their hands while having fun. Our special Kawaii.i version features a more contemporary arrangement as well as international versions with English lyrics!
Kawaii Hand Washing Challenge
Japanese Lyrics by : Tomoko Kamiya / English Lyrics by : Nelson Babin-Coy / Traditional Melody /
Arranged by : Cathy Mito / Featuring : Misha Janette RinRin Doll Mr. Yabatan
Grab some soap, let’s wash our hands
Clean both sides, I know you can
Between fingers, just like this
Don’t forget your fingertips!
Twist your thumbs, we’re almost done
Around both wrists, now let’s have fun
