The countdown to Easter is on!!

Hello everyone,

Hope Monday went smoothly for everyone! Anyone else feel like that was the fastest mid-term ever?? Today, I had one of those days where I felt like the hours just vanished on me! I also nearly fainted when I looked at the calendar and saw how soon Easter is! Soooo much to do and sooooo little time! I spent half an hour after school frantically digging for my Easter resource pack and was delighted to discover lots of rhymes and songs that I forgot I had!

I thought I'd share them for you, there's a mixture of Easter rhymes and songs -  nice for transitions, performing or linking into lessons!

If you would like a copy, do the usual, drop a mail to or PM me on facebook!

Time is flying!


Easter Rhymes, Songs & Finger-plays
Bunnies are brown
Bunnies are white
Bunnies are always
An Easter delight.
Bunnies are cuddly
The large and the small.
But I like chocolate ones
The best of them all.
Easter Everywhere
Rabbits soft and cuddly
Baby chickens, too.
Easter eggs for baskets
White and pink and blue.
Easter cards of greeting,
Music in the air,
Lilies just to tell us
It's Easter everywhere
Hop, Hop, Hop
Hop, hop, hop,
Hop my bunny hop,
Hop along my little bunny
You look sweet and very funny
On this Easter day.
Look and see,
Where the eggs may be,
Here is on and here's another,
Here's a lovely one for mother.
Let us look and see,
Where the eggs may be.
The Easter Bunny's feet
Go hop, hop, hop,
While his big pink ears
Go flop, flop, flop.
He is rushing on his way
To bring our eggs on Easter Day,
With a hop, flop, hop, flop, hop.

Five Brown Eggs
Five brown eggs in a nest of hay,
One yellow chick popped out to play.
Four brown eggs in a nest of hay,
Another yellow chick cheep-cheeped Good day.
Three brown eggs in a nest of hay,
Crack went another one, Hip hooray.
Two brown eggs in a nest of hay,
One more chick pecked his shell away.
One brown egg in a nest of hay,
The last yellow chick popped out to say,
Happy Easter!
Five Baby Bunnies
Five baby bunnies hopping out to play,
Hopping in the forest on happy Easter Day. The first baby bunny carried his new cane,
He twirled as he came hopping down the lane. The second baby bunny came to the river's brink.
Tasted the cool water and took a long, long drink. The third baby bunny tied her bonnet so new,
Under her chin, a bow of pink, white, and blue. The fourth baby bunny skipped down the shady lane.
He opened his umbrella just in case of rain. The fifth baby bunny said, "Look what I see"
Lots and lots of coloured eggs hiding near the tree.
Mr Bunny
Mr. Bunny, Mr. Bunny,
Won't you stop, stop, stop?
"No," said Mr. Bunny,
I must hop, hop, hop.
Easter is coming, and there is lots to do.
Eggs must be coloured green, pink, and blue.
I'll tie each basked with a pretty bow.
Children are waiting so I must go!"

Some Things That Easter Brings
Easter duck and Easter chick,
Easter eggs with chocolate thick.
Easter hats for one and all,
Easter Bunny makes a call!
Happy Easter always brings
Such a lot of pleasant things.
Secret Information
Would you like to know a secret?
Well, I'll tell you one I know:
The Easter's Bunny's coming,
My mammy told me so.
He'll bring a basket filled with eggs
And leave it in my yard,
And I will find it Easter morn,
If I look very hard.
I shouldn't tell my secret,
But I think it should be shared.
You ought to know that Bunny's coming,
So you can be prepared!
Finding a Treat
Hippity hop, hippity hop,
Will the Easter Bunny stop?
Will he leave a treat behind
An Easter basket for me to find?
I'll look over here, I'll look over there,
I'll look behind things, I'll look everywhere.
I'll look until I find my treat,
And then I'll sit right down and eat.

Easter Surprise
Easter eggs,
Yellow and blue,
Easter eggs,
For me and you.
Easter eggs,
Candy sweet,
Easter eggs,
Are good to eat.
Easter eggs,
Pretty and funny,
Egg Hunt (to the tune of "Clementine")
Easter morning, Easter morning, Easter morning dawning fine
Have to find the Easter eggs now, I've already picked up nine.                            Fill the basket, fill the basket, fill the basket every time
Candy eggs and jelly beans are tucked behind each growing pine.                        Bend and scramble, bend and scramble, bend and scramble, reach and climb.
Find each hidden Easter treat now, pick them up and they'll be mine.                    See them glow and see them glisten, see them glow and see them shine.
Join me with my Easter candy and together we will dine.
He Hopped So Very Quietly
We didn't hear the Easter Bunny
Hopping down the hall ---
He hopped so very quietly,
He made no noise at all.
But on the breakfast table
He left bright Easter toys ---
Downy chicks for little girls
And rabbits for the boys.
Then we found bright Easter eggs
Tucked behind the chairs
Upon the windowsill and in
The corners of the stairs.
Easter Bunny
Easter bunny soft and white
Hopping quickly out of sight.
Thank you for the eggs you bring
At Easter time to welcome spring.
Yellow eggs and blue and red
In the grass and flower bed
We will hunt them everywhere
Is it really you who put them there?

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?

2.That hops -- So Fast?,                        3, That hops -- Backwards?,

Easter Bunny (Sung to: "Ten Little Indians")
Hop along little Easter Bunny,
Hop along little Easter Bunny,
Hop along little Easter Bunny,
Hop along your way.
                                                                Hide all the eggs and Easter candy,
Hide all the eggs and Easter candy,
Hide all the eggs and Easter candy,
Hop along your way.

I'm A Little Chick  (Sung to: "I'm a Little Teapot")
I'm a little chick inside an egg
I'm always sleeping - snoring away
Soon you'll hear a pecking, pecking sound
The egg will crack and out I'll pop.

5 Little Eggs 
5 little Easter eggs,
Lovely colours wore;
Mother ate the blue one,
Then there were four.
4 little Easter eggs,
Two and two, you see;
Daddy ate the red one,
Then there were three.
3 little Easter eggs,
Before I knew,
Sister ate the yellow one,
Then there were two.
Two little Easter eggs,
Oh, what fun!
Brother ate the purple one,
Then there was one.
1 little Easter egg,
See me run!!!
I ate the last one,
And then there was none.
