Easter Songs

Easter Songs for preschool through school age children.

Just a cute song I made up for Easter Eggs:

I’m a little Easter egg

round and fat.

Find me in the grass or

in your hat.

When you see me pick me up,

put me in your Easter basket,

or gobble me up!


An Easter song, I sing to my class at Easter time. They wear bunny ears which I buy from a discount store. I have 5 little bunnies and they stand up in front of the class while we sing this song.

Tune (5 Little Ducks)

5 Little Bunnies at Easter Time

Went to the carrot patch far away

Mummy bunny called them all right back.

But only 4 of her little baby bunnies came back.

Repeat to 3,2,1 bunny come back. Then sing the song again and all the bunnies come back.

Kids love this because they get to be able to take on a role in the song. Enjoy.

we wish you a merry Easter

we wish you a merry Easter

we wish you a merry Easter

and a happy holi-day

Here comes peter cotton tail

Here comes Peter Cottontail

Hoppin’ down the bunny trail,

Hippity hoppity,

Easter’s on its way

Bringin’ ev’ry girl and boy

A basketful of Easter joy

Things to make your Easter

Bright and gay

He’s got jelly beans for Tommy

Colored eggs for sister Sue

There’s an orchid for your mommy

And an Easter bonnet too. Oh!

Here’ comes Peter Cottontail

Hoppin’ down the bunny trail

Hippity hoppity

Happy Easter Day

Look at him hop and listen to him say,

“Try to do the things you should”

Maybe if you’re extra good

He’ll roll lots of Easter eggs your way

You’ll wake up on Easter morning

And you’ll know that he was there

When you find those choc’late bunnies That he’s hiding ev’rywhere, Oh!

Here’ comes Peter Cottontail

Hoppin’ down the bunny trail

Hippity hoppity

Happy Easter Day.

Here’s a song that my kids love to act out as they sing…

Bunny, bunny, bunny, you’re so funny With your twitching nose (wiggle nose) Bunny, bunny, bunny, you’re so funny From your head (point to head) to your toes (bend over and touch toes)

Bunny, bunny, bunny your ears are funny (make bunny ears with hands on top of head) They’re too big for you…

Bunny, bunny, bunny, you’re so funny… Everyone loves you (kids hug themselves)

Ohhhhhh Ohhhhhhhh Bunny is very funny!
I said the Easter Bunny is very funny.
Come on Easter Bunny.
You are very funny!

Eggbert the Easter Egg

Eggbert the Easter Egg Was a teeny little Easter Egg. Cutest thing you ever saw In the window of a big department store.

All day the children came. Noses pressed against the window paid. Spoke to Eggbert but Alas! Eggbert cried because he couldn’t answer back.

But all at once the clouds rolled by to let the sunshine through. Believe it or not! It got so hot that Eggbert split it two!

Out popped a baby chick. A teeny weeny little baby chick. And the children heard him say: “Eggbert wishes you a Happy Easter Day!”

A simple idea, but in case you haven’t thought of it try the Bunny Pokey with your class. You can use bunny ears, bunny paws, bunny feet, bunny nose, fluffy (or bunny) tail, and any other bunny parts. My class loves doing the Bunny Pokey.

Here is a fun Easter tune called “Hippoty-Hoppity Easter Bunny” It is sung to the tune of the “Eensy, Weensy Spider”. The children sing this song seated with legs outstretched and hands touching toes. It goes like this

The Hippoty Hopity Easter Bunny is coming straight and me. Closer and closer he hops up on my knee. Up to my shoulder the Bunny’s much too near. Happy Easter, he whispers in my ear.

(As the children sing this song, their hands hop from their feet to their knees and eventually to their shoulders and ears. They absolutely love it!!!!!)

Jelly Bean Stew

I’m making Jelly Bean stew
And this is what I’ll add
Every color of jelly beans
All the kinds I’ve had

We’ll put in a pinch of magic
One rainbow, finely diced
And to add to the mixture
A little sugar and spice

Then to give it the right taste
We’ll add a child’s dream
Add some imagination
Now to let it steam

This is how to make Jelly Bean Stew
In an imaginary way
This will make you smile
And maybe brighten your day
