Hoppy Easter!

Excuse the pun but we have been having a great time doing lots of bunny related activities as part of our Easter and Spring celebrations here in my childminding service.

We have all been hopping about like little bunnies and learning new bunny songs including the ones below:

Ten Little Bunnies (to the tune of Ten Little Indian Boys)

One little, two little, three little bunnies,

Four little, five little, six little bunnies,

Seven little, eight little, nine little bunnies,

Ten little bunnies going hop, hop, hop.

Hop, hop, hop go ten little bunnies,

Hop, hop, hop go ten little bunnies,

Hop, hop, hop go ten little bunnies,

Ten little bunnies going hop, hop, hop.

 

Five Little Bunnies (to the tune of Five Little Monkeys)

Five little bunnies in a flower bed,

One hopped up high and bumped his head.

Along came mummy bunny and to them said;

“No more hopping in the flower bed.”

Four little bunnies……………………………

Three little bunnies………………………….

Two little bunnies…………………………….

One little bunny……………………………….

 

Little Peter Rabbit

Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose,
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose,
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose,
And he flipped it and he flapped it and the fly flew away.

Floppy ears and curly whiskers,
Floppy ears and curly whiskers,
Floppy ears and curly whiskers,
And he flipped it and he flapped it and the fly flew away.

 

We’ve also been making little Easter Bunnies to stick on our Easter cards to send home too.

If you’d like to make your own, you will need:

  • Cardboard
  • Coloured Pens
  • Scissors
  • PVA Glue
  • Cotton Wool Balls
  • Googly Eyes

Here’s what to do:

  • Draw a simple bunny shape on the piece of card and cut out
  • Cover the bunny shape with the glue
  • Let your little one place the cotton wool balls on the bunny shape after they have had some time feeling the cotton wool whilst you describe it to them
  • Cut out some pink inners of the bunny’s ear, a bunny’s nose and some whiskers for your little one to stick to the front of the bunny’s face
  • Stick the googly eyes, or eyes that you have drawn onto card and cut out, on the bunny’s face
  • Stick the bunny onto the front of a folded piece of card and let your little one write their Easter greeting on the inside
