This episode is called Easter Bunnies
Why do bunnies hide their eggs?
And dance about on long legs?
I’ll tell you why: Easter’s here!
The bunnies' favourite time of year.
They sit around with paint and brush
They take their time. They do not rush.
And paint their eggs of many sizes,
And fill them full of big surprises.
Some have chocolate, dark or milk.
Oh, so sweet and smooth as silk.
Some are filled with silly toys,
Fun for all the girls and boys.
Some are filled with Jellybeans;
Candies fit for kings and queens.
Some have nothing, that’s ok.
Those painted eggs are for display.
Then it’s time to hide them all.
No home too big. No home too small.
Inside the couch, on the stair,
Where you keep your underwear!
In the tub, on the bed,
Tucked inside the garden shed,
Behind a book, in your coat,
Floating in the castle moat.
And when the eggs have all be hid,
The bunnies make sure every kid,
Is finding eggs and having fun.
That’s when they know their job is done.
Then rest, relax and hop,
But still, they’ll never really stop
Thinking of that special day
That’s now just one year away.
