Songs
Five Magic Rabbits
Five magic rabbits in a tall black hat.
Along comes a magician who gives each one a pat.
He waves his magic wand high above their ears,
Abracadabra, poof!
One rabbit disappears.
(count down to one)

I use this as a flannelboard and have the children wave an imaginary magic wand and say Abracadabra with me.
Rabbit songs and fingerplays
There are several good bunny songs and fingerplays on the Texas State Library site.
