Five Little Bunnies Went Out to Play
Hippety hop and hippety hay,
Five little bunnies went out to play.
Hippety hop and hippety hay,
One little bunny hopped away.

Four little bunnies...
Three little bunnies...
Two little bunnies...
One little bunny...

Hippety hop and hippety hay,
No more bunnies are playing today.
Hippety hop and hippety hay,
I hope they come back another day.


Finger Plays :


Funny Bunny
(Author unknown)

Here is a bunny (Raise two fingers.)
With ears so funny
And here is a hole in the ground. (Make hole with fingers of other hand.)
At the first sound she hears,
She pricks up her ears (Straighten fingers.)
And pops right into the ground. (Put fingers in hole.)

I’m An Easter Bunny
(Author unknown)

I’m an Easter Bunny, watch me hop, (Hop around.)
Here are my two ears, see how they flop. (Hold hands at sides of head and flop them.)
Here is my cotton tail, here is my nose, (Wiggle hips, then point to nose.)
I’m all furry from my head to my toes. (Point to head, then to toes.)

Funny little bunny
Sat on a stump
Flicked his floppy little ears
And then he gave a jump!

Hunting for Eggs
(Author unknown)

Hunting for eggs
Under my bed,
I found one in a slipper,
And the egg was colored red.

Hunting for eggs,
Now I have two,
I found one in the closet,
And the egg was colored blue.

Hunting for eggs,
What a lucky fellow,
I found one in a bucket,
And the egg was colored yellow.

Hunting for eggs
Where none could be seen,
I found one in a shoe box,
And the egg was colored green.

Hunting for eggs,
Quick as a wink,
I found one in the garden,
And the egg was colored pink.

Red and yellow,
Green, pink, and blue.
I found five eggs–-
How about you?
