Hibernation Station starts our "Christmas Countdown" as we read and talk about what all the animals are doing this time of year. It's getting cold outside...
Our wild rabbit friends, work hard searching for food. They seek shelter in underground dens they have lined with grass, straw and twigs to keep them warm.
Here is a bunny with ears so funny
(Make bunny ears with two fingers)
Here is a hole in the ground
(Use other hand to make a "hole", a fist turned so that the open part is on top)
When a noise he hears, he perks up his ears
(hands to ears as if listening)
And he jumps in the hole in the ground.
(Place bunny ears from one hand into "hole" in the other hand)
Raccoon friends climb into their soft bed in a hollow trunk to sleep until the cold days pass.
All aboard for the train from Hibernation Station! Woo! Woo!
