“Spring and Bunnies” preschool storytime

Preschool spring bunnies

Opening Song
I wiggle my fingers. I wiggle my toes.
I wiggle my ears. I wiggle my nose.
I wiggle my shoulders. I wiggle my chin.
I stretch my arms wide and pull them back in.
I wiggle my elbows. I wiggle my knees.
I hop like a bunny. I smile and say, “Cheese!”
Now I have no more wiggles left in me
And I sit on the floor as still as can be.

Book – The Little Rabbit who Liked to Say Moo by Jonathan Allen

Song: Lunch Money’s “Are you a Rabbit?

There was a Little Bunny
There was a little bunny who lived in the wood. (hold up two fingers)
He wiggled his ears as a good bunny should (wiggle on head)
He hopped by a squirrel. He hopped by a tree. (hop, hop)
He hopped by a duck. And he hopped by me. (hop, hop over fist)
He stared at the squirrel.  He stared at the tree. (stare, stare)
He stared at the duck. But he made faces at me! (stare, make faces)

Sleeping Bunnies
See the little bunnies sleeping
‘Til it’s nearly noon?
Shall we wake them with a merry tune?
Oh, so still. Are they ill?
Wake up little bunnies!
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies ‘til I say stop

Bunny Pokey
You put your paws in, you put your paws out
You put your paws in and
You shake them all about
You do the bunny pokey
As you hopn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about
Repeat with ears, tail

Here is a Green Leaf
Here is a green leaf, and here is a green leaf
And that makes two.
Here is a bud that makes the flower.
Now watch it bloom for you.

Book – In my Garden: a Counting Book by Ward Schumacher

Sun in the Sky
(Tune: Skip to my Lou)
Sun in the sky; shine, shine, shine.
Sun in the sky; shine, shine, shine.
Sun in the sky; shine, shine, shine.
Help me with my garden.
Rain from the clouds, drip, drip, drip.
Seeds in the dirt, grow, grow, grow.

Song – Preschool of Rock “Growing Bigger” 

Goodbye
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as high as we can
Good-bye! (in high, squeaky voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as low as we can
Good-bye! (in a deep voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as fast as we can
Good-bye! (very quick)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as slow as we can
Good-bye! (very slowly and drawn out)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as quiet as we can
Good-bye! (in a whisper)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as loud as we can
GOOD-BYE! (yelling)

Early literacy tip: Easter can be early literacy – oriented too! Coloring and painting eggs develops fine motor skills that can later be used when learning to write! Have your child sort eggs by sizes or colors. For older children, draw treasure maps they must follow to find their eggs or their baskets.
