Did you Ever see a Bunny? - sung to "Did you ever see a lassie?"
Did you ever see a bunny, a bunny, a bunny,
Did you ever see a bunny, that hops -- so slow?
He hops, and hops, and hops, and hops,
Did you ever see a bunny, that hops so slow?
Joe The Bunny - sung to "I'm a Little Teapot"
I'm a little bunny, my name is Joe.
(hold up two fingers)
I hop fast and I hop slow.
(hop fingers around fast and slow)
Whenever I get sleepy, my ears droop low,
(bend fingers down)
But after my nap, up they go!
(hold fingers straight up)
Arts & Crafts
Tuna Can Bunny
Scrap Construction Paper
Cut a pice of felt to cover the outside of the tuna can, and glue it in place. Use your imagination, construction paper, scrap felt, markers, and anything else you want to decorate the can to look like a bunny. Glue on the cotton ball for the bunny's tail. These bunny containers can then be filled with Easter treats! Perfect for jelly beans.
Bunny Upside Down In Pot
Just wanted to let you all in on a cute Easter craft that my dcks did on Wednesday. It REALLY turns out cute and is relatively easy and very cheap. You will need: small teracotta pots (sp?), Jumbo plastic eggs, filler paper (crinkle design or Easter grass), cotton balls, Foamies 9x12 foam sheet in pink or fuschia and one in white. I painted the pots white prior to the kids getting them, then allowed them to sponge paint (actually dab with cotton balls) pastel colors on them. I then cut about 1/2 inch or a little more off the top of a dixie cup and glued that inside the pot and then glued the plastic egg (pointy side DOWN) into the dixie cup. I ran a ribbon of craft glue around the inside edge of the pot and the kids stuck the crinkle design filler paper to the glue (some sticks out, etc.). I also cut and glued the Foamies into bunny feet (white was the actual feet and the fuschia was cut for the pads of the feet) and then I glued the pads of the feet onto the white part of the foot and they glued the feet onto the egg. The last thing they did was to glue a cotton ball on as a tail. (It is supposed to look like a bunny sticking upside down in a pot since I haven't told you that before this.) Anyway, I know my directions stink, but they really do turn out SOOOOOO cute and the kids had a blast doing them. The parents loved them as well.
