Tired Bunnies
(Use rhyme to count baby's fingers and toes.)

"Come my bunnies, it's time for bed."
That's what Mother Bunny said.
"But first I'll count you just to see,
If you have all come back to me.
Bunny 1, Bunny 2, Bunny 3, oh dear,
Bunny 4, Bunny 5, yes, you're all here.
You're the sweetest things alive.
My bunnies 1, 2, 3, 4, 5."

Five Little Bunnies
(Hold up open hand and bend down one finger with each verse.)

Five little bunnies standing by the door,
One hopped away, and then there were four.
Four little bunnies sitting near a tree,
One hopped away, and then there were three.
Three little bunnies looking at you,
One hopped away and then there were two.
Two little bunnies enjoying the sun,
One hopped away, and then there was one.
One little bunny sitting all alone,
He hopped away, and then there were none!

Little Bunny Foo Foo
for the tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLRdXR8ngAQ
Little Bunny Foo Foo, hopping through the forest... (Hold up two fingers and hop along)
Scooping up the field mice and bopping 'em on the head! (Scoop with cupped hands, smack motion)
Down came the Good Fairy, and she said... (Float fingers down, wiggling them)
"Little Bunny Foo Foo, I don't like your attitude... (Wag finger)
Scooping up the field mice and bopping 'em on the head!" (Scoop with cupped hands, smack motion)
“I'll give you 3 chances, (Hold up three fingers)
Then I'll turn you into a goon!”  (Make a scary face)
The next day…  
(Repeat two more verses with 2 and 1 chances...)
"I gave you three chances. (Hold up three fingers)
Now I'll turn you into a goon!"  (Make a scary face)
(POOF!)  
And the moral of the story is:  
Hare today, goon tomorrow!
