Sleeping Bunnies nursery rhyme

Sleeping Bunnies

Singing an action rhyme is a great way to get active and have fun, as well as learning new words.

Have a go at joining in with the words and actions together as you watch the video below.

Sleeping Bunnies

See the little bunnies sleeping till it’s nearly noon (lie down and pretend to sleep)
Shall we go and gently wake them with a merry tune?
They're so still, are they ill?

No! Wake up bunnies!
(jump up from the floor)

Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
(hop up and down like a bunny!)
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop and stop
(show your child how to STOP when they hear the word stop!)

Top Tip!

Once you've learnt the song and the actions, try making up your own versions of the song. You could be sleeping lions that wake up and roar! Or choose another animal that your child likes.
