Use the printables to cut out and create
paper eggs. If you cannot print, make your own eggs at home.
With someone in your house, one person hides the eggs while you sing the song. (or play the video) When the song is over, the other person looks for the eggs!
6 Create your own rhythm pattern
Create your own rhythm pattern.
Use this printable if you know how to read ta and ti-ti rhythm patterns. If you don’t have a printer, draw your own “egg” notes.
Try playing your pattern on an instrument from your “Instrument Kit” or by clapping your hands. For more fun, have everyone in your house choose a different "instrument" and play the pattern 2 times on each instrument.
7 Watch and listen to the lyrics of Easter is Here
Watch and listen to the lyrics movie for the song.
In verse 1, move for eight beats like “bunnies.” In verse 2, move for eight beats like “baby chicks,” and in verse 3 like “lambs.”
Verse 4 is left blank so the children can think of something else that they can move like.
Repetition is really important in all learning, and each time you repeat a song, you'll improve your performance. Make a list of your favorite songs.
You can use the search engine on the site to quickly find any song you want to sing again.
