Bunny Hop

Rabbits like Peter Rabbit love the spring! Let’s pretend to be bunnies and hip-hop all over our home, rabbit style!

Materials:

Bunny ears, eye pencil whiskers, and cotton ball tails are all optional

Steps:

1. When people think of “spring” they think about animals like bunnies.


2. Let’s put on our bunny ears, cottontails, and whiskers and pretend we’re Peter Rabbit. Now, let’s have a bunny hop!


3. We’ll hop from here to there and back again — all around home. Extra points for safe and speedy bunnies!

Words to Use:

Bunny – a small rabbit
Hop – to move by jumping

Simplify:

Create a short route for your little bunny to hop — like from one chair to another. Once he or she masters a little hopping, try more!

Stretch:

Create a bunny obstacle course, with pillows and furniture. See if your family’s rabbit colony can hop around, under, over, and through your warren’s obstacle course!

Why:

Hopping like a bunny is muscle building and giggle producing. 

Extend the Learning:

Watch a Peter Rabbit adventure — on Noggin — with your child to learn about rabbits’ habits. How does Peter move? Where does he live? What does he eat?
