Hippity hop and hippity hay -
It will soon be Bunny Day!

Whether you celebrate Easter or not, bunnies are a reminder of "hoppy" spring days. Here are a few finger plays and a story to help you get ready for spring.

Here Is a Bunny
Here is a bunny (Hold up index and middle fingers.)
With ears so funny. (Wiggle fingers.)
And here is his
Hole in the ground. (Make hole with fist of the other hand.)
At the slightest noise he hears,
He pricks up his ears, (Wiggle fingers.)
Then hops to his
Hole in the ground! (Pretend to hop bunny ears into the hole.)

Where Is My Bunny?
Where is my bunny? (Put hands behind your back.)
No one can see. (Shake head.)
I think that my bunny
Is hiding from me. (Look over shoulder.)
Here is my bunny. (Hold up 1 thumb.)
He’s found a friend. (Hold up other thumb.)
Look at all the others. (Slowly stick up fingers.)
Now there are ten! (Wiggle fingers.)

Hand Bunny – Trace around each child’s hand and cut out. Cut off the middle finger. Fold down the pinky and thumb. Glue on a sheet of paper and add a mouth, whiskers, eyes and nose. 


Tell and Draw Bunny Tale1.  One day a man went walking with his arms behind his back. 

2.  It started to snow.

3.  He got a sled so he could play in the snow.

4.  But after awhile he got cold and decided to build himself a house with two stories. 

5.  He put two windows in the top floor and divided them in half. 

6.  Then he built two chimneys. 

7.  He threw some sticks on the fire. 

8.  And soon he was snug as a bunny.
