5 Little Bunnies Counting Song for Easter

5 Little Bunnies Finger Rhyme

Five little bunnies hopping on the floor,       (hopping action)

One hopped away,                   (hop fingers on floor)

And then there were four        (take one bunny puppet away)


Four little bunnies hid behind a tree,       (hide face in hands)

One climbed up,          (climbing action with hands)

And then there were three      (take one bunny puppet away)


Three little bunnies wondered what to do?      (tap head as if to think hard)

One went to sleep,                             (pretend to sleep)

And then there were two            (take one bunny puppet away)


Two little bunnies went to have some fun,         (the last two puppets jump up and down)

One hopped down a hole,        (make a diving action with hand)     

And then there was one                        (take one bunny away)


One little bunny paddling in the sea,    (make last little bunny hop up and down)

I went and picked him up,              (pick the bunny up)      

 And he came home with me!               (cradle him in your arms)

(sung to the same tune as Six Brown Eggs In A Nest Of Hay)

    • Hi Marina, Yes I think The 5 Little Bunnies would be perfect for 3-4 yr olds. Older children will find it easier to grasp and learn the words of course, but younger children will love to watch, count and join in where they can. Either way it’s a great Spring and Easter counting song – I hope your class have fun with it!
