Special Songs/Rhymes
Funny Bunny Hop
Funny, little bunny goes hop, hop, hop!
Funny little bunny, please stop,stop,stop!
Wiggle your ears and crinkle your nose.
Then wiggle, wiggle, wiggle right down to your toes.

Here’s a Little Bunny
Here’s a little bunny with ears so funny,
(make fist with two fingers up)
And here’s his hole in the ground.
          (put hand on waist, elbow out)
When a noise he hears,
          (cup hand to ear)
He picks up his ears,
And jumps in his hole in the ground!
          (hop rabbit into hole)
-- from Lapsit Services for the Very Young by Linda L. Ernst. New York: Neal-Schuman Publishers, Inc, 2001.

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 -- like this?
He hops, and hops, and hops, and hops,
Did you ever see a bunny, that hops like this?
Change to hops slow, fast, backwards, etc.

Felt Boards
Tired Bunnies
“Come my bunnies, it’s time for bed.”
That’s what the mother bunny said.
“But first I’ll count you just to see,
If you have all come back to me.
Bunny 1, Bunny 2, Bunny 3, oh dear,
Bunny 4, Bunny 5, yes, you’re all here.
You’re the sweetest things alive,
My bunnies 1,2,3,4,5.”
-- I’m a Little Teapot!: Presenting Preschool Storytime by Jane Cobb. Point Roberts, WA: Black Sheep Press, 1996.

Sung to: "Bingo"
I know a rabbit with big long ears
and BUNNY is its name -o
B U N N Y, B U N N Y, B U N N Y
and BUNNY is its name-o


Bunny Headbands
Such an easy craft to make and the kids look absolutely adorable wearing it. I wanted to sing "The Bunny Pokey" after class (you put your ears in, tail in, etc.), but there wasn't enough time.
