10 little bunnies hopping all around.

Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Bunnies hopping all around.

10 little, 9 little, 8 little bunnies.
7 little, 6 little, 5 little bunnies.
4 little, 3 little, 2 little bunnies.
1 bunny hopping all around.

Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Do a spin and sit back down!

Song:  This is the Way We Plant Our Seeds
(tune: Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush)

This is the way we plant our seeds,(Sprinkle seeds on ground)
Plant our seeds, plant our seeds.
This is the way we plant our seeds,
Early in the morning.

This is the way the wind does blow,(Blow and wave arms in front of you)
Wind does blow, wind does blow.
This is the way the wind does blow,
Early in the morning.

This is the way the rain comes down,(Flutter fingers down)
Rain comes down, rain comes down.
This is the way the rain comes down,
Early in the morning.

This is the way the sun shines bright,(Make circle with arms above head)
Sun shines bright, sun shines bright.
This is the way the sun shines bright,
Early in the morning.

This is the way the flowers grow,(Stand fingers up from fists)
Flowers grow, flowers grow.
This is the way the flowers grow,
Early in the morning. 

Rhyme:

I’m a seed that’s in the ground
I get sunshine and water
I grow a stem, two leaves and then
Pop! I’m a flower!
