My preschool teacher daughter recommends these 21 bunny poems:
The Easter Bunny’s feet Go hop, hop, hop, While his big pink ears Go flop, flop. He is rushing on his way To bring our eggs on Easter Day, With a hop, hop, hop, hop, hop.
Egg Hunting (Clementine)
I am hunting, I am hunting, I am hunting for the eggs, Have to find the Easter eggs now, I’ve already picked up nine.
Fill the basket, fill the basket, fill the basket every time Candy eggs and Jelly beans are tucked behind each growing pine.
Bend and scramble, bend and scramble, bend and scramble, reach and climb. Find each hidden Easter treat now, pick them up and they’ll be mine.
Bunny, bunny, bunny, you’re so funny (Smile and put fingers on dimple spots) With your twitching nose (wiggle nose) Bunny, bunny, bunny, you’re so funny (Smile and put fingers on dimple spots) From your head (point to head) to your toes (Point to toes) Bunny, bunny, bunny your ears are funny (make bunny ears with hands) They’re too big for you, Bunny, bunny, bunny, you’re so funny (Smile and put fingers on dimple spots) Everyone loves you (Hug Yourself)
Hop, Hop, Hop
Hop, Hop, Hop Hop my bunny hop. Hop along my little bunny You look sweet and very funny
Look and see, Where the eggs may be, Here is one and here’s another, Here’s a lovely one for mother.
Funny Easter Bunny
Owwwwwww, Owww Bunny is very funny! I said the Easter Bunny is very funny, Come on Easter Bunny, you’re very funny
Baby bunny dressed in blue (Hold up two fingers like bunny ears) Met another; then there were two. (hold up two fingers on both hands) Bouncy bunnies to the left (Move fingers to left.) Bouncy bunnies to the right (Move fingers to right.) Bouncy bunnies get in bed (Put head on hands like sleeping) Off to bed, you sleepy heads (pretend to sleep)
Hop Little Bunnies
Verse 1: Have your children pretend to sleep while you sing. See those little bunnies sleeping, until its nearly noon, Let us gently waken them, with our merry tune, oh how still, are they ill, wake up soon,
Verse 2: Have your children wake up and jump and clap while singing Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop Hop little bunnies, and stop.
Baby bunny bounces high (Jump high) Baby bunny bounces low (Jump low) Baby bunny blinks his eyes (Blink eyes) Baby Bunny waves good-bye (Wave)
A rabbit came to my house once, With funny,stretched-out ears (Hands on head like bunny ears) His nose was full of wiggles, and (wiggle nose) His eyes were full of fears (point to eyes) I said,”Why do you twitch your nose? Is that a bunny habit? And are you called the “March Hare” Or called the Easter Rabbit? He never said a word: but bounced (Hands on head like bunny ears) Away on pushing legs; (Hop forward) But, oh, he left behind a nest (Look backward) Of colored Easter eggs!
The Fluffy Little Rabbits
The fluffy little rabbits so soft and white, (Place hands on head to represent rabbit ears.) Went looking for some carrots in the dark, dark night. (Look, holding your hand over your eyes.) The fluffy little rabbits found a garden so big, (Extend your arms outward.) So they jumped into the garden and began to dig. (Jump; then pretend to dig.) They ate the crunchy carrots so orange and bright, (Pretend to eat a carrot.) Till they heard some footsteps coming and they froze in fright. (Pretend to be frightened.) Then the fluffy little rabbits heard the farmer say, (Listen: cup your hand around your ear.) “Scat, little rabbits,” and they all hopped away! (Clap once when you say, “Scat”; then hop.)
Hop, Little Rabbit…
Hop, little rabbit, hop, hop, hop, Hop, little rabbit, don’t you stop. Hop, little rabbit, one, two, three. Hop, little rabbit, hop to me.
Easter Bunny Hop
(Shortnin’ Bread) Look over here and look over there Little candy Easter eggs are every where Who’s the one who hides them there? Little Easter bunny hides them everywhere Little Easter bunny goes hopping, hopping Little Easter bunny foes hop, hop, hop Little Easter bunny goes hopping, hopping Little Easter bunny goes hop, hop, hop!
The Easter Bunny Song
Oh, the Easter Bunny’s coming, she’s the one I long to see. She’s got eggs in her basket, she’s bringing them to me. I’m looking out the window and I hope she gets here quick, I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.
Oh, I love Easter Sunday and it comes round every year Right now I’m so excited cause the Easter Bunny’s here! The Easter eggs are lovely, with swirls on them because, The Easter Bunny paints them with her little furry paws.
We’ll take the eggs and hide them, all up and down the hill, And I’ll go back to find them with my little brother, Bill. We will pile up all the goodies and I’ll eat all I can take, And then end Easter Sunday with a big old belly ache.
Now sing briskly: Oh, the Easter Bunny’s coming, she’s the one I long to see. She’s got eggs in her basket, she’s bringing them to me. I’m looking out the window and I hope she gets here quick, I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick. I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick. I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.
Little Easter, the comedienne bunny, Tried too hard at being funny. She juggled and she dropped the eggs They fell and smashed between her legs.
Poor Easter left the stage in shame And thought that she might change her name. But then that little bunny read this ad, “This Sunday we need help real bad!”
So Easter Bunny kept her name And through the years has gained much fame, When Easter’s Sunday comes each year, She delivers eggs and we all cheer.
I’m a Little Bunny (Sung to the Tune: I’m a Little Teapot)
I’m a little bunny soft and sweet Here are my ears and here are my feet When I’m in the garden, I look for treats And nibble on all I like to eat.
The Bunny Pokey (Sung to the Tune: Hokey-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: “You put your bunny nose in; You put your bunny tail in; You put your bunny paws in.”
A Fat Bunny
A fat bunny rabbit with ears so tall. And two pink eyes about this small, went hop, hop, hopping to get some lunch. He found a fresh carrot, Yum, yum, crunch!
Mister Rabbit in the carrot patch Digging up the carrots. Scratch, scratch. He ate the first little carrot, round and fat. He ate the second little carrot just like that. He ate the third little carrot, orange and sweet. He ate the fourth little carrot, what a treat! Mister Rabbit in the carrot patch Digging up the carrots. Scratch, scratch, scratch.
Five Bunny Rabbits
Five bunny rabbits sitting by my door One hopped away and then there were four. Four bunny rabbits sleeping near a tree One hopped away and then there were three. Three bunny rabbits now what will they do? One hopped away and then there were two. Two bunny rabbits resting in the sun. One hopped away and then there was one. One bunny rabbit left all alone. He hopped off down the road maybe to your home . . . .
Bunnies are brown Bunnies are white Bunnies are always An Easter delight.
Bunnies are cuddly The large and the small. But I like chocolate ones The best of them all.
