The Easter Bunny's Assistant by Jan Thomas

I was worried about those children who don't celebrate Easter, so I changed some words around. No one noticed, and everyone was laughing along with the story. 





Songs/Rhymes
Cluck Cluck, Red Hen (with puppet)
Use a chicken puppet and two plastic eggs
Sung to: "Baa Baa, Black Sheep”
Cluck, cluck, red hen, have you any eggs?
Yes, sir, yes, sir, as many as my legs: 1,2
--Storytime Source Page 






Shake Your Eggs
Use shaker eggs
Shake your eggs and shake them high.
Shake your eggs and shake them low.
Shake your eggs and shake them high.
Shake your eggs around you go.

Shake Your Shakers
-- Mother Goose on the Loose by Betsy Diamant-Cohen. New York: Neal-Schuman Publishers, Inc., 2006.

Put Your Egg on Your Head

Sung to: “There’s a Spider on the Floor”
Put your egg on your head, on your head.
Put your egg on your head, on your head.
Put your egg on your head
Put your egg on your head.
Put your egg on your head, on your head.
continue with toes, tummy, etc.
--Librarian Lisa’s Storytimes 

Craft
I ordered these Easter Egg Magnet Kits from Oriental Trading. Everything came prepackaged and was self-adhesive, so all I had to do was hand them out. They gave me a nice break from preparing crafts.
