If you are like me and happened to pick up a package of foam bunnies to make, then you may be in for a hopping good time!
Classroom packs of to-make foam characters can be found at major retailers such as Target and Michaels or online through companies such as Oriental Trading. They usually come pre-stickered and ready to assemble quickly.
They are a quick and easy craft with lots of learning potential.
1. Assemble your bunnies
We had 24 little bunnies in our box. The kids had fun using the stickers. It was a great little fine motor activity.
2. Add numbers
Grab a handful of bunnies and write numbers on them. I am working with 1-5 this week.
3. Play some hop-tacular bunny math games:
- Hide the bunnies and hop to find them. Put them in numerical order.
- Once they are in order, have your child close their eyes. Take a bunny away. Ask them “Which bunny hopped away?”
- Play bunny numbers. Say, “I’m thinking of a special bunny. This bunny is one number greater than 3. Which bunny is it?”
On Tuesdays, we play with our food. Thanks to @ABoyarshinov for the yum-tastic math activity.… http://t.co/kdQg0yNPDY— Annie’s Homegrown (@annieshomegrown) April 8, 2014
