Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.

This week's Monkey Around Monday will have you Running Like Rabbits & Behaving Like Bunnies...or something like that!

Katie created a game that incorporates physical activity & counting.'s "Easter-y!"

~Preschoolers love to make-believe. Pretend to be Peter Rabbit. Fashion a fuzzy white tail. Attach it & send your little ones outside for some hoppy exercise.

~Using sidewalk chalk, draw a bunny trail on your driveaway. Encourage the kids to hop like a bunny through the trail.

~Set up an egg race or obstacle course. Encourage your children to hold the egg on a spoon & balance it as they race to the finish line. For multiple participants make it a relay race.

~Play "Bunny, Bunny, Rabbit" instead of Duck, Duck, Goose.

Apples 4 the Teacher has compiled a list of Easter related games & activities to get your children up and moving: Easter Egg Race, Egg Race, Suspended Eggs, Rolling Eggs, & Bunny Eggs.


  1. That is a cute game!

    The last 2 links aren't working.

  2. I love the egg rolling game listed on the first link. I hope our weather is nice this year, so the kids can have an outdoor egg hunt.

    Last year, it was cold and snowy.

  3. My kids would love to do the sidewalk chalk idea and hop on the bunny trail!
