3 Fun Easter Poems for Kids
The Spring holidays resemble a fresh start, and it’s time to refresh the kiddos excitement with these fun Easter poems for kids. Be prepared to entertain and keep the learning fun with Easter poems about Peter Cottontail, a bunny with floppy ears, and little Easter eggs that go missing!
Poems for Easter
Easter Bunny Poem
Guess who’s hopping down the bunny trail? It’s the Easter Bunny, of course! He has big pink ears that flop as he hops along to bring eggs on Easter day.
Easter Bunny would be a great addition to your collection of Easter poems for kids. Your kiddos will love acting this out, hopping all around, which will increase their interest to do more learning activities with the poem.

Physical movement improves academics social-emotional well-being (NEAToday). I’m sure you can picture it now; the kiddos are pretending to have floppy ears as they hop around, and reach down to pick up Easter eggs. This will increase their mood, because they are getting the opportunity to act silly and have fun. Then, they will be excited as you sit them down to do a mini-lesson and a Build-a-Poem activity.
With the Easter Bunny poem, you could do mini lessons on rhyming and _op family words. Then when putting your kiddos into centers, you can have them complete the Easter Bunny Build a Poem. This is a pocket chart poem where the kiddos use large word cards to build the familiar poem.

Peter Cottontail Poem
Here comes Peter Cottontail! Then a little kiddo shouts out “Who is Peter Cottontail?”. Bwahaha… this happened almost every year I taught kindergarten. I’d laugh to myself, then finish singing the Easter poem. Sure enough, by the end of the poem, the kiddos all figured out who Peter Cottontail was. 🙂

The Peter Cottontail Build a Poem will also be one of your kiddos favorite poetry centers! Just as the reviews say, this is the perfect addition to your Easter Bunny unit. As you’re working with a guided reading group, you’ll catch yourself in awe over how much the kiddos love working together to build these Easter poems for kids!

Easter Writing Center
Get out your chart paper and markers, must-haves for kindergarten teachers, because this poem would be great for making predictions!
Record your kiddo’s responses as they make predictions about where the bunny trail leads to. You’ll get all kinds of answers, such as to my house, to the school, to a bunny hole, and so much more! As an extension, in a writing center, you can have them draw pictures and write a sentence about their prediction. All you would need is blank writing/drawing paper, crayons and markers, and perhaps Spring Vocabulary cards.
5 Little Easter Eggs
If you’re following me on instagram, then you may have seen my recent story about this Easter poem for kids. As I was writing it, I polled kindergarten teachers, like you, to see which version they most preferred…numerals or number words.
To please everyone, I ended up creating both versions, and I’m so excited to share them with you! Both are included in the resource, which makes it great for differentiation.
To top it off, set out the 5 Little Easter Eggs Build a Poem as an interactive poetry center. They can use the word cards to build the poem in a pocket chart, or on the floor. This makes a great independent work station for the kiddos to work together to achieve a project (the poem). As an incentive for finishing the poem, I let my kiddos recite the poem to the class when centers were over.
