Rhymes:

Here Comes a Bunny

Here comes a bunny, hip-hop-hop

See how his long ears, flip-flop-flop

See how his nose goes, twink-twink-twink

See how his eyes go wink-wink-wink

 

Funny Bunny

Here is a bunny (raise two fingers)

With ears so funny

And here is a hole in the ground (make hole w/ 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)

 

The Bunny Pokey

You put your right paw in

You take your right paw out

You put your right paw in

And you shake it all about

You do the Bunny Pokey

And you hop all around

That’s what it’s all about!

Follow with:

You put your left paw in…

You put your pink nose in…

You put your floppy ears in…

You put your cotton tail in…

You put your whole bunny in…

 

Craft:

We made peeking bunnies using a paper plate, construction paper, glue, and markers.

First we traced and cut out two handprints from green construction paper.  We placed our paper plate “eating side” down and glued the handprints to the bottom of the plate.

Then we cut out two bunny ears from another sheet of construction paper.  I made my bunny’s ears pink, but some of the kids had other ideas and we had bunny ears in blue, yellow, white, black, orange, and so on.

We then glued the ears on the top, back of the plate.  Finally we drew some “peeking” eyes on our bunny, using a black marker.

Voila, we’re done!
