Easter Songs and Fingerplays

Easter Songs

Did You Ever See a Bunny? (Tune:Did You Ever See a Lassie?)

Did you ever see a bunny, a bunny, a bunny?

Did you ever see a bunny, a bunny on Easter morn?

He hops around so quietly

And hides all the eggs.

Did you ever see a bunny on Easter morn?

Easter Bunny (Tune:Ten Little Indians)

Where, oh, where is the Easter Bunny?

Where, oh, where is the Easter Bunny?

Where, oh, where is the Easter Bunny?

Early Easter morning?

Easter Eggs (Tune:Jingle Bells)

Easter eggs, Easter eggs

Hidden all around.

Come my children look about

And see where they are found.

Easter eggs, Easter eggs

They're a sight to see.

One for Tom and one for Ann

And a special one for me!

(Insert names of children in your classroom)

I Love Eggs (Tune:Frere Jacques)

I love eggs, I love eggs,

Yum, yum, yum, in my tum.

Scrambled, boiled, or fried,

Any way I've tried.

Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum.

See my math ideas:"How do you like your eggs?" (perfect song to go with it)

Easter Fingerplays

Five Baby Bunnies

Five baby bunnies hopping out to play,

Hopping in the forest on Easter Day.

(Fingers hopping)

The first baby bunny carried his new cane,

He twirled it as he came hopping down the lane.

(Twirl cane in the air)

The second baby bunny came to the river's brink,

Tasted the cool water and took a long, long drink.

(Stoop down, take drink)

The third baby bunny tied her bonnet so new,

Under her chin, a bow of pink, white, and blue.

(Tie bow under chin)

The fourth baby bunny skipped down the shady lane,

He opened his umbrella just in case of rain

(Open umbrella)

The fifth baby bunny said, "Look what I see!"

Lots and lots of colored eggs hiding near the tree!"

(Eyes cupped)

Five Little Easter Eggs

Five little Easter eggs lovely colors wore,

(Hold up five fingers)

Mother ate the blue one, then there were four.

(Bend down one finger)

Four little Easter eggs, two and two you see,

Daddy ate the red one, then there were three

(Bend down one finger)

Three little Easter eggs, before I knew,

Sister ate the yellow one, then there were two.

(Bend down one finger)

Two little Easter eggs, oh, what fun!

Brother ate the purple one, then there was one.

(Bend down one finger)

One little Easter egg, see me run!

I ate the last one, and then there were none.

(Bend down last finger)

I like to make flannel board eggs to use with this. I also substitute children's names.
