Rhymes
One Little Bunny Chant
Mr. Eric and Mr. Michael for Outrageous Orange

I like to do this song all year round so when its not snowing I sing ' one little bunny hopping to and fro.' I also pretend it takes 5 bunnies for it to be a party.

One little bunny hopping in the snow
Along came another, and he said, “Hello!”
Hop hop hop and away they go.How many bunnies? Do you know?... TWO!

Two little bunnies hopping in the snowAlong came another, and he said, “Hello!”
Hop hop hop and away they go.How many bunnies? Do you know?... THREE!

Three little bunnies hopping in the snow Along came another, and he said, “Hello!”
Hop hop hop and away they go.How many bunnies? Do you know?... FOUR!

Four little bunnies hopping in the snow Along came another, and he said, “Hello!”

Hop hop hop and away they go.How many bunnies? Do you know?... FIVE!

It’s a bunny party!

Windy Day by Carole Peterson from HUM
There was a man in our town
Went for a walk one day
The wind, it blew so very hard
It turned him the other way!


Egg Shaker Rhyme
Shake Your Shaker (to the tune of London Bridge) from LibraryLand.

Shake your shaker in the air,Shake it here, shake it there.
Shake your shaker in the air,Shake your shaker.

Shake it high and shake it low,Shake it yes, shake it no.
Shake it high and shake it low,Shake your shaker.

Shake it up and shake it down,Rub your shaker on the ground
.Shake it up and shake it down,Shake your shaker.

Shake it near and shake it far,Drive your shaker like a car.
Shake it near and shake it far,Shake your shaker.

Shake it fast and shake it slow,Shake it stop, shake it go.
Shake it fast and shake it slow,Shake your shaker.

Closing
We Clap Our Hands Like This - tune farmer in the dell. Borrowed from Opening/Closing Songs on Storytime Katie who borrowed it from Rhymes for Toddlers on Sunflower Storytime.

We clap our hands like this, We clap out hands like this
We clap our hands with all of our friends, We clap our hands like this.

We blow a kiss like this, We blow a kiss like this
We blow a kiss with all of our friends
We blow a kiss like this.

We wave goodbye like this.We wave goodbye like this.
We wave goodbye with all our friends. We wave goodbye like this

Craft
For our craft we traced the kids hands on paper and then used different colors of washable ink pads to make leaves on the trees. Be sure to have towelettes or a sink nearby so the kids don't leave fingerprints all over the place.
