Bunny Theme Activities for Preschoolers
In our weekly plans, we provide 5 simple, hands-on activities to play, create and learn with your preschooler whilst having fun and encouraging a love of reading.
It is up to you whether you choose 1 activity from the week, or do all 5 and how you set up the activities. One of the team members here at the Virtual Book Club for Kids has put together a suggested outline of how you could organise your week carrying out an activity a day. You can see how this would work in the image below but it is up to you this is just an idea.
Sensory Play Activity for Bunny Week
We have a simple (relatively mess-free) bunny themed sensory bin for this week’s sensory play activity for your preschoolers.
The activity uses cotton balls but you could use pompoms.
Bunny Alphabet Activity for Preschoolers
This bunny hop alphabet activity for your preschoolers is fun to do outside if the weather is good.
If not you could cut out some bunny footprint shapes from paper or card and then do similar inside your house.
Feed the Bunny Game for Math
Our math activity this week is focusing on colors and sorting colors.
It’s a simple DIY to make your own Bunny and then you can feed it the different colors. Don’t just use it for this -> with the alphabet printables with the bunny alphabet game above you could feed them letters of the alphabet or even the letters of their names.
