Five Little Easter Eggs

Five little Easter eggs, lovely colors wore;
(hold up five fingers)
Mother ate the blue one, then there were four.
(bend down one finger)

Four little Easter eggs, two and two, you see;
Daddy ate the red one, then there were three.
(bend down next finger)

Three little Easter eggs, before I knew,
Sister ate the yellow one, then there were two.
(bend down next finger)

Two little Easter eggs; oh, what fun,
Brother ate the purple one, then there was one.
(bend down next finger)

One little Easter egg; see me run!
I ate the very last one, and then there were none.
(bend down last finger)


Hop and Stop

The first little rabbit went hop, hop, hop.
I said to the first rabbit, "Stop, stop, stop!"
The second little rabbit went run, run, run.
I said to the second rabbit, "Fun, fun, fun!"
The third little rabbit went thump, thump, thump.
I said to the third rabbit, "Jump, jump, jump!"
The fourth little rabbit went sniff, sniff, snuff.
I said to the fourth rabbit, "That is enough!"
The fifth little rabbit went creep, creep, creep.
I said to the fifth rabbit, "It's time to sleep!"


Bunny, Bunny

Bunny, white bunny
With ears so tall
(Place pointer fingers beside head)

And your two pink eyes
And your mouth so small.
(Make 0 with mouth)

Wiggle goes one ear.
(Wiggle one finger)
Wiggle goes the other.
(Wiggle other finger)

Hop, hop, hop, hop
Home to your mother!
(Hop away in four hops)


I Had an Easter Bunny

I had an Easter bunny,
One day she ran away.
I looked for her by moonlight,
I looked for her by day.
I found her in the meadow
With her babies 1, 2, 3.
So now I have four rabbit pets
To run and jump with me.


Some Things That Easter Brings

Easter duck and Easter chick,
Easter eggs with chocolate thick,

Easter hats for one and all,
Easter bunny makes a call!

Happy Easter always brings
Such a lot of pleasant things!


The Bunny Wiggle

Bunny rabbits wiggle,
So much they make me giggle. *giggle*
They wiggle their ears,
They wiggle their nose,
The tail on their rear,
Wiggles too, I suppose.
And just when I say, "Stop wiggling, stop!"
They wiggle all over, and take a big hop!


Easter Bunny
(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)

Easter Bunny, soft and white
Hopping quickly out of sight,
Thank you for the eggs you bring,
At Eastertime we welcome spring,
Easter Bunny, soft and white,
Hopping quickly out of sight.


Bunny-Pokey

You put your bunny ears in,
You put your bunny ears out,
You put your bunny ears in,
And you shake them all about,
You do the Bunny- Pokey,
And you hop yourself around,
That's what it's all about!

Additional verses: bunny nose, bunny tail, bunny paws.


THE BUNNY TALE

I thought it was a kitty cat
But saw it was a rabbit
He was hopping down the trail
And then he stopped to sit.

He looked back at me
And wiggled his nose
Seems he wanted me to follow
So, I quickly arose.

I started down that trail
Amongst the forest's trees
As that rabbit scurried off
As quickly as you'd please.

He stopped at the next bend
He once more looked at me
And as I moved nearer
He turned once more to flee.

I moved deeper in the forest
It was dark and kinda silent
I looked around the trail's curve
To see where that rabbit went.

He sat in an open clearing
Of clover covered ground
Amidst a group of creatures
That had gathered around.

They all watched me warily
But, they didn't turn to run
The rabbit said, "Come join us.
Come join in our fun."

I asked, "How do you speak?
Am I losing my mind?
If I close my eyes and look again,
I wonder what I'll find?"

He said, "You're in our world now,
And if you'll truly believe,
You will be amazed at things
Your heart and mind perceive."

You will see life as it should be,
If you'll take the time to look.
You'll find all those stories true,
As told in the fairytale book."

"You'll see we live in peace,
And nearly perfect harmony.
You'll learn what it really means
To be happy, safe and free."

I sat down with legs crossed
And said, "Please tell me more.
This sounds like the very place
That I have been searching for."

"I'm tired of all the hassle
Of this world in which I live
Where they all think, I want to take,
When I only want to give."

"It's a plastic/cardboard place
Where nothing's really real.
Where so many things are only said,
Without the will to feel."

"So, if I like it here with you
Will I be able to stay?
Or will you force me to return
To where they play those games they play?"

He said, "Humans are so foolish!
They are filled with hate and greed
They rip the life from the Earth
After they've planted it's seed."

"You say you want to stay with us
But, that can not be allowed,
For if we welcome one of you
Before long, there'll be a crowd."

"We will let you stay for awhile
Try to teach you what we know
That this World can live in Peace
And then, you'll have to go."

But then I awakened
And realized, I'd dreamed
But I can't get over how real
That Easter Bunny seemed!

Bunnies

Bunnies are brown
Bunnies are white
Bunnies are always
An Easter delight
Bunnies are cuddly
The large and the small
But I like the chocolate ones
The best of them all

The Rabbits

A family of rabbits lived under a tree;
(close right hand and hide it under left arm)
A father, a mother, and babies three.
(Hold up thumb, then fingers in succession)
Sometimes the bunnies would sleep all day;
(Make fist)
But when night came, they liked to play.
(Wiggle fingers)
Out of the hole, they'd creep, creep, creep.
(Move fingers in a creeping motion)
While the birds in the trees were all asleep,
(Rest face on hands, place palms together)
Then the bunnies would scamper about and run...
(Wiggle fingers)
Uphill, downhill! Oh, what fun!
(Move fingers vigorously)
But when the mother said, "It's time to rest,"
(Hold up middle finger)
Pop! They would hurry
(Clap hands after "pop")
Right back to their nest!
(Hide hand under arm)
hahahhahahahahahahahahaah!!!!!!!!!!
