Make The White Rabbit
Challenge the kids to make the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. You can give them: white balloons (4 long and 2 round), sticky tape, string, scissors, felt pens, crepe paper, cotton wool and card. See if they remember themselves that he has a stopwatch and a waistcoat.

Ping-Pong Finger Puppet Bunny
Draw a circle on your ping pong ball large enough to put your finger through. Carefully make a small hole in the middle of this circle so that it fits your finger. Cut out two ear shapes which should be 1 cm wide at the bottom. With a paper knife cut two 1 cm slits in top of ball and insert ears. Draw in rabbits face with felt-pens. Make whiskers by threading 3 or 4 lengths of waxed thread through each side of the nose. Use a small ball of cotton wool for the tail at the back.

Bunny Card
Fold a piece of card in ½ and open out again. You can now see the fold line. Draw a picture of a bunny on both parts of the card – the neck of the bunny should be on the fold. Make sure the ears are at least 1 cm from the top edge. Cut round the head carefully – possibly best with a craft knife . Press the head out then fold the top ½ backwards along the line so that the card stands up.

Easter Bunny Basket
You will need the template of the basket. Color in the bunnies and then cut around the bold lines. On each bunny there is a line which needs to be cut to make a slit, on each bunny there is a slit high on one arm and low on the other. On the dotted line fold all 4 bunnies over. Interlock the arms to make a box. Use spare card to make a handle and decorate maybe with a ribbon. Inside fill with green shredded paper and put in some mini Easter Eggs.

Lollipop Easter Bunny Card
Fold a piece of card in ½ . Draw a rabbit on the front (see Easter Folder) and color in. Stick on buttons or felt for eyes. Make 2 slits between rabbits paws and thread lolly stick through the slits. Write message inside.

Bunny Games and Activities

MATH Button Bunnies
** Make paper rabbits with numbers on their stomachs and cover with clear
adhesive plastic.
**Pass out rabbits to children and have them put as many buttons on the
stomach as shown by the numeral. Pass rabbits to the left and repeat.

SENSORY Cotton balls
Provide the sensory table with lots of cotton balls and let the children know that bunnies have really soft fur.

Sneaky Bunny Visit
Whilst the children are playing outdoors I hide small easter eggs around the
room. Then I make bunny prints on the floor and carpet. I use talcum powder
with a bunny print template. Shake enough powder to make the print look
real. the children get excited when they see the prints. Often they place
their foot on top and follow them. It’s easy to clean up off the floor (hand
vacuum)and it deodorizes the carpet.

Bunny Hat Match
Cut out different colored bunnies and matching hats. Attach the bunnies to a manila folder and let your children match the hats to the corresponding bunny.

Pin the Tail on the Bunny

Bonny Hop Relay
Have a bunny hop relay race. Have your children hop like bunnies and pick up Easter Eggs. They then have to hop back and put the eggs in another basket. Then the next child goes.

Easter Bunny, Easter Bunny, Where’s Your Egg?
All the children are sitting in circle. One stands in the corner and counts to ten Easter Eggs. Meanwhile one of the children in the circle is given a paper egg to sit on. . All the children chant: “Easter Bunny, Easter Bunny, Where’s Your Egg? Somebody stole it from your home. Guess who?” Then the child has three guesses of which child it is. Then the cycle continues until everyone has had a turn.

The Easter Bunny Song
Oh, the Easter Bunny’s coming, she’s the one I long to see.
She’s got eggs in her basket, she’s bringing them to me.
I’m looking out the window and I hope she gets here quick,
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.

Oh, I love Easter Sunday and it comes round every year
Right now I’m so excited cause the Easter Bunny’s here!
The Easter eggs are lovely, with swirls on them because,
The Easter Bunny paints them with her little furry paws.

We’ll take the eggs and hide them, all up and down the hill,
And I’ll go back to find them with my little brother, Bill.
We will pile up all the goodies and I’ll eat all I can take,
And then end Easter Sunday with a big old belly ache.

Now sing briskly:
Oh, the Easter Bunny’s coming, she’s the one I long to see.
She’s got eggs in her basket, she’s bringing them to me.
I’m looking out the window and I hope she gets here quick,
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.

Funny Bunny
Little Easter, the comedienne bunny,
Tried too hard at being funny.
She juggled and she dropped the eggs
They fell and smashed between her legs.

Poor Easter left the stage in shame
And thought that she might change her name.
But then that little bunny read this ad,
“This Sunday we need help real bad!”

So Easter Bunny kept her name
And through the years has gained much fame,
When Easter’s Sunday comes each year,
She delivers eggs and we all cheer.
