The Easter Bunnies

Read the poem and act out the actions

The grass was green – The sky was blue

The birds did sing – Butterflies all flew.

The sun was sunny – The rain did not drop

Awake the Easter Bunnies – Named Hippity and Hop.

The Easter Bunnies? – Yes, it is true

You may think it is funny – There’s not just one, there are two!

Hippity was brown – With a big cotton tail

His bright blue eyes were round – And he lead the trail.

His legs were strong – So he could really go

And his ears were long – And moved to and fro.

Hop was so fluffy – His hair, solid white

His short ears were puffy – His pink nosed twitched left and right.

He would follow his brother – Down the trail they would go

Playing games with each other – Like jump high and jump low.

When Easter time would come – There would be no time to stop

Get ready for fun – Get ready Hippity and Hop!

Hippity would make – Great marshmallow treats

While Hop would bake – Candy eggs to eat.

And of course there was chocolate – Placed in the baskets, on top

“We’re getting ready still yet” – “Ready!” said Hippity and Hop.

Then on Easter Day – All the children so kind

Go searching away – For Easter treats to find.

And if you look really hard – The Easter Bunnies may stop

And wave to you from your yard – It’s Hippity and Hop!

Easter Bunny Card

The Easter bunny is one of the major symbols of Easter along with Easter eggs and Easter chicks. Like Christmas’ Santa Clause, the Easter bunny brings Easter eggs and gifts to children on the eve of the Easter holiday. When Easter approaches, fun activities include participating in Easter egg hunts and making Easter crafts that feature either Easter eggs or the Easter bunny to give to someone special or as displays for the occasion.

For the Easter bunny, Easter is a time for giving Easter eggs and other presents. Kids will enjoy creating something fun and at the same time giving something worthwhile for the Easter holiday. Among the many Easter crafts available, the best and most expressive would be an Easter bunny card.

There are many ways to make an Easter bunny card. The card to be made here would be as fluffy as a real Easter bunny. The materials needed are:

  • Blank card stock or a rectangular piece of soft light-colored cardboard
  • Blue, red or black colored marker (make sure it is kid-safe, non-toxic)
  • Glue (make sure it is kid-safe, non-toxic)
  • Cotton balls
  • Pair of wiggly eyes
  • Some black yarn
  • Red cardboard

To make the Easter bunny card, first fold the card stock or cardboard in two to make a fold-out card. Then smear the front page with glue and spread the cotton balls on the page until it is fully covered with cotton. Cut out some long rabbit ear shapes with some spare cardboard. Stick the ‘ears’ a little beneath the first page. Cover the ears with some cotton as well. Stick the wiggly eyes on the front page. Cut a small red circle for the nose. Cut six two-inch pieces of black yarn for whiskers and stick them on either side of the nose. Cut out little hearts and egg shapes from the red cardboard and stick them with glue inside the card. Write a well-meaning Easter holiday message in English like ‘Happy Easter’.

Spring Poem

Discuss the 10 words in green with your class.

“The Season of Spring” businesswoman and billboard

the season of spring

weather seems to sing

lovely lovely days

are coming our ways

 

the season of spring

blooming blossoming

of nature of all kind

let roots unbind

 

the season of spring

birds unfold their wings

diving high into sky

wish one could fly

 

the season of spring

careful hearts love sting

reaching out towards others

some persons might bother

 

the season of spring

nice sound bells ring

new wave new style

faces have on a smile

 

the season of spring

an new awakening

busy humanity on earth

as if it’s a new birth

 

listen listen to my words

the season of spring is near

now a look into your lovely eyes

and one can see spring is already here
