Sleeping bunnies song

What you need

  • An open space with no hazards in close proximity, where your little one can lie down and jump
  • Your lovely singing voice and a link to the video/song


By singing this song together, your child’s hand-eye coordination, listening skills & language skills will be enhanced. It will also help to work on their ability to follow directions, promote their creativity and raise self-confidence.

The experience

This game is a children’s favourite, and can be played on the spur of the moment with no props, just the song!

The song starts with everyone on the floor pretending to sleep; as the bunnies wake up, everyone jumps up and hops around. You can also clap your hands as you jump and encourage your child to join in with the clapping.




See the little bunnies sleeping, sleeping till it’s noon,
Shall we go and wake them with a merry tune?
Oh how still, are they Ill?
Wake up soon…
…wake up little bunnies!
Jump little bunnies jump jump jump, jump jump jump, jump jump jump
Hop little bunnies hop hop hop, hop hop hop.



  • Try pretending to be different animals to explore different movements! A giraffe walks moving both right limbs and then both left limbs! A frog hops differently from a bunny! Butterflies and birds both have wings but flap in a different way!
  • Add props and simple costumes to extend the fun for an older toddler.
