Rhymes for Kids: Five Little Bunnies Finger Puppets

Activity for ages 1 to 5.

Rhymes for kids are a fabulous was to keep your kids entertained or distracted! My current go-to, guaranteed slam dunk rhyme is “Five Little Bunnies”.  Since my boys love HEARING the words so much, I was excited to create a set of free printable bunny finger puppets they could use to act out the rhyme. Rhymes for kids help them begin to compare ending sounds in words- an important early reading skill! And the puppets provided a hands-on way to connect to the silly story.
