Easter Eggs

Five little Easter eggs, lovely colors wore,
Mother ate the blue one, then there were four.

Four little Easter eggs, two and two you see,
Daddy ate the red one, then there were three.

Three 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.

One little Easter egg, see me run,
I ate the green one, then there were none.
A Bunny
Once there was a bunny.
(Double left fist and extend two fingers for ears.)
And a green, green cabbage head,
(Double fist on the right hand.)
"I think I'll have some breakfast," the little bunny said.
(Move bunny toward cabbage head.)
So he nibbled and he nibbled.
(Move fingers on the left hand.)
Then he turned around to say,
"I think this is the time I should be hopping on my way!"
(Make hopping movements with the left hand.)
Craft
Make little Easter Egg baskets for the kids. Punch two holes in a pastel colored paper cup. Weave one end of a long pipe cleaner through one hole and tie it together. Do the same with the other hole. Have the kids use foam stickers to decorate the baskets.
Other
Put a bag of plain M&M's in each basket.
Notes
With the Easter Eggs fingerplay, I used the flannel board and some colorful flannel eggs.
