B U N N Y

Tune: BINGO
There was a rabbit that I once knew
And Bunny was her name-o.
B-U-N-N-Y
B-U-N-N-Y
B-U-N-N-Y
And Bunny was her name-o!
There was a rabbit that I once knew
And Bunny was her name-o.
B-U-N-N-Hop
B-U-N-N-Hop
B-U-N-N-Hop
And Bunny was her name-o!
As each letter is removed from the song turn the bunny over so we can only see her tail as she hops away.
You could clap instead of saying hop or you could actually hop or jump.

St Patricks’s Day Five Little Shamrocks with free templates

Counting Up

One green shamrock, in the morning dew,
Another one sprouted,
and then there were two.

Two green shamrocks, growing beneath a tree;
Another one sprouted,
and then there were three.

Three green shamrocks, by the cottage door;
Another one sprouted,
and then there were four.

Four green shamrocks, near a beehive;
Another one sprouted,
and then there were five.

Five little shamrocks, bright and emerald green,
Think of all the luck
these shamrocks will bring.

Counting Down

Five little shamrocks, growing by the door
(child’s name) picked one and that left four.

Four little shamrocks, green as they could be
(child’s name) picked one and that left three

Three little shamrocks, sitting by my shoe
(child’s name) picked one and then there were two

Two little shamrocks, nodding in the sun
(child’s name) picked one and that left one

One little shamrock for St Patrick’s Day fun
(child’s name) picked one and that left none

Little Fox, Little Fox Hide and Seek Colours and Sizes Game Free Pattern

Little fox, little fox
Playing hide and seek,
Are you in the (colour) box?
Let’s take a peek

OR

Little fox, little fox
Playing hide and seek,
Are you in the large, medium, or small box?
Let’s take a peek

Little Fox

To play the game:

Little Fox behind the Yellow Box

 Hide the little fox underneath one of the present boxes

Then chant with the children:

Little Fox, little fox…..

Children take turns guessing which colour or size present box the fox is hiding under by identifying a present box by colour or size, and removing it to search underneath for the fox.

 If the child’s guess is incorrect replace box and begin again.

LIttle Fox Red Box

Inspired by lots of Flannel Friday posts
