Easter Songs, Poems & Fingerplays

Eggs
Eggs come in many sizes
Eggs hold some big surprises
Speckled, brown, white, or blue
Eggs hold babies that are new
Chicks from eggs are fluffy yellow
Chicks from eggs are funny fellows!

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

Easter Bunny Hippity Hop
(Sung to “Pop! Goes The Weasel”)
Easter bunny, hippity hop
Hide ’til Easter morning
Easter bunny, hippity hop
UP! Pops the bunny

Easter Fingerplay
Five little Easter eggs, lovely colors wore
Mother ate the blue one, then there were four
Four little Easter eggs, two and two you see
Daddy ate the red one, then there were three
Three little Easter eggs, before I knew
Sister ate the yellow one, then there were two
Two little Easter egg, Oh what fun
Brother ate the purple one, then there was one
One little Easter egg, see me run
I ate the last one, and then there were none

The Bunny Fingerplay
Here is a bunny (make a bunny with hand)
With ears so funny (wiggle ears)
And this is his/her hole in the ground (make a hole with other hand)
When a noise she hears (listen intently)
She pricks up her ears (straighten ears)
And jumps in her hole in the ground (make bunny jump into hole)

Rabbit Doesn’t Have A Tail At All
(Sung to “London Bridge”)
Rabbit doesn’t have a tail at all
Tail at all, tail at all
Rabbit doesn’t have a tail at all
Just a powder puff
His ears are longer than his tail
Than his tail, than his tail
His ears are longer than his tail
It’s a powder puff

Did You Ever See A Bunny?
(Sung to “Did You Ever See A Lassie?”)
Did you ever see a bunny, a bunny, a bunny
Did you ever see a bunny that hops so slow
He hops, and hops, and hops, and hops
Did you ever see a bunny that hops so slow

Additional Verses:
That hops so fast
That hops backwards
That hops on one foot

Easter Bunny
(Sung to “Ten Little Indians”)
Hop along little Easter bunny

Hide all the eggs and Easter candy
Hide all the eggs and Easter candy
Hop along your way

Bunny, Bunny
Bunny, white bunny (Place pointer fingers beside head)
With ears so tall.
And your two pink eyes
And a mouth so small. (Make O 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. (Hold up one finger)
One day she ran away. (make fingers “run”)
I looked for her by moonlight. (Hand shading eyes)
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!

Egg Poem
Eggs come in many sizes.
Eggs hold some big surprises,
Speckled, brown, white, or blue.
Eggs hold babies that are new.
Chicks from eggs are fluffy yellow,
Chicks from eggs are funny fellows!

Finding a Treat
Hippy hop, hippity hop.
Will the Easter Bunny stop?
Will he leave a treat behind,
An Easter basket for me to find?

I’ll look over here,
I’ll look over there,
I’ll look behind things,
I’ll look everywhere
I’ll look until I find my treat,
And then I’ll sit right down and eat.

Easter Hat
I’ll make a pretty Easter hat,
To wear at Easter time
I’ll put some flowers on it,
And a bow will make it fine.
We’ll fasten on some ribbons,
All pretty pink and blue,
Then we’ll take a picture,
And I’ll give it to you.

See the Easter Bunny
(Sung to “Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush”)
See how the bunny hops along,
hops along, hops along.
See how the bunny hops along, (children crouch and hop)
On an Easter morning.

This is the way he wiggles his nose,
wiggles his nose, wiggles his nose (children wiggle nose)
This is the way he wiggles his nose,
On an Easter morning.

This is the way he flops his ears………………etc..
This is the way he flops his tail (wave hand behind you) …etc
