Science

1. What do Bunnies Like to Eat? - Go to the library or pet store and find out what bunnies eat.

2. Rabbit or Hare? - Find out what the difference is between a rabbit and a hare.

Reading

1. Read It's Not Easy Being a Bunny (Beginner Books(R)) by Marilyn Sadler - This is a great story to help your child learn to be thankful for what he has and who he are. In the story P.J. Funnybunny was sad because he didn't like being a bunny. He had to eat cooked carrots every day, and he had too many brothers and sisters. He decided he didn't want to be a bunny any more. He tried being a bear, but living with the bears wasn't very exciting because they slept all winter long. He tried being a bird, a beaver, a pig, and a moose, but none of them worked out. At the end he decides what he really wants to be is a bunny, and it's not so bad being a bunny after all.

After reading this story help your child think of other animals that P.J. Funnybunny might have tried living with. Discuss what he would have liked about living with those animals and what he wouldn't have liked. Ask your child if he had a to be an animal, what animal would he be. What would he like about being that animal and what would he dislike.

 

2. Make Up a Story about a Bunny - Name your bunny and make up stories about it. Act out the stories using the carrots and the bunny.

Math

1. Math Stories - Make up stories about the bunny and how he lost, gave away, or found some carrots, and have your child figure out how many carrots the bunny has left. For example, you may say, "One day Hoppy the Bunny gathered a bunch of carrots into a big pile. He looked at the pile and wondered if he had enough carrots for his family. Can you help Hoppy count his carrots?" Or you can say, "Hoppy had ten carrots in his mouth. On his way home he got hungry and stopped to eat some. How many carrots did Hoppy eat?" Have your child count how many carrots are left in Hoppy's mouth and figure out how many he ate.

2. Deliver Carrots - Make a list of the people in your family or neighborhood with the number of carrots each person should receive next to his of her name. Have your child help the bunny deliver the correct number of carrots to each person. You can use candy, cards, or notes instead of the carrots. Or you can write little notes on the carrots.

3. Feed the Bunny Game - Write numbers, letters, words, shapes or math fact on the carrots. Tell your child, "Bunny would really like to eat carrots with the letter "a" on them. Can you find a carrot with the letter "a" and feed the bunny?" If your child feeds the bunny the wrong letter, make a yucky sound and have the bunny spit it out. Keep playing until all the carrots have been eaten.

4. How Far Can Bunny Hop? - Pretend your bunny is hopping and help your child measure how far he can hop. Have your child jump as far as he can and measure the distance of his jump.

6. Counting - Have your child count how many eggs he has in his basket. Count by twos, threes, fours, etc.

Grade School:

1. Vocabulary Words - Write your child's vocabulary words on the eggs, one per egg. Place the finished eggs on a table, face up. Have your child pick an egg and read the word written on the egg. If he can read the word, he gets to place it in the basket. If he can't read the word, tell him what the word is and then place it in a separate pile. When he has gone through all the words, place the eggs from the pile face up on the table and have him pick words he knows, and place them in the basket. Keep playing this way until all the words are in the basket.

2. Vocabulary Word Match - Write your child's vocabulary words on the paper eggs making matching sets. Place all the eggs on the table face down.

4. Reading/Writing Game - Each player thinks of a sentence and then writes it, one word per egg, on the eggs, and then mixes up all the eggs and gives them to another player. Players then have to put the eggs in order to make a sentence. When a player is done, he should ask the person he got the eggs from if he is correct. If he is correct, he should trade his eggs for another set of eggs.

5. Review Math Facts - Write your child's math facts on the eggs. Write the problem on one side and the solution on the other. Turn all the cards over so that the problem side is up. Have your child pick an egg and tell the answer. If he is right, he gets to place the egg in the basket. If he is wrong, tell him the answer and place the egg in a pile. When he has tried all the eggs, place the eggs that he missed on the table and keep playing until all the eggs are in the basket.

6. Creativity - Cut out one egg shape from card stock or card board. Have your child use the egg shape as a template and trace around it onto another sheet of paper, cut it out, and color the egg. Place the finished eggs in the Easter basket, and then have an Easter egg hunt. (If this is too hard, cut out the egg shape from a center of a piece of card board and use the card board with the egg-shaped hole in it as the template.)

7. Read "Happy Easter, Mouse! " by Laura Numeroff - Have your children count how many eggs Mouse found, and then have them count how many eggs are in their baskets.

8. New Easter Words - Have children write words from the story on their eggs that they didn't know before reading the story. If they knew all the words, have them write new words relating to Easter.

Easter Craft - Easter egg bunny craft for kidsThese cute little bunnies can be made from real eggs or you can use plastic eggs and fill them with treats. They can also be used as place setting for your Easter Feast.

What you will need: Facial tissue (a good, strong brand) I used Puffs with lotions, card stock (heavy paper), scissors, crayons and markers, glue, plastic or real eggs that have been colored.

How to Make Easter Egg Bunny:

1. Prepare your eggs ahead of time. Color them if you are using real eggs, or fill them with treats if you are using plastic eggs.

2. Draw a rectangle 3/4" x 7 1/2" long onto card stock. Draw legs on the bottom part of the rectangle. Cut the rectangle and legs out so that they are attached. Color them and then glue the ends of the rectangle together to fit snugly around your egg to form a holder for the egg. (Don't glue it to the egg.) Fold the legs up. Draw hands and torso onto the card stock. Cut them out and color them. Glue the hands and torso pattern to the back, inside part of the legs pattern around the ring.

A pattern for this craft is available to members only. Click here to go to the members only section and print out the Pattern.

3. To make the bunny heads you will need two facial tissues for each head. Crinkle up one facial tissue into a tight ball. Unfold the other one and place the crinkled up ball in the center. Bring one corner down and over the crinkled up ball. Roll the opposite corner around the crinkled up tissue. Now scrunch up the two corners you haven't used yet into ear shapes. Bring them together over the crinkled up ball that has been rolled inside the tissue. Carefully tie the two ends together over the ball. Pull the ends out and form them into ear shapes.

4. Draw eyes and ears on the face and glue it onto the smaller end of the egg. Place the egg and head in the feet holder.
