Toddler Storytime: Bunnies

I continued with my animal themes this month and did a storytime with bunnies!

We read…

 

 

 

 

Life Size Farm by Teruyuki Komiya
Little White Rabbit by Kevin Henkes

We sang…
Well, Hello Everybody
 Old MacDonald
If You’re Happy and You Know It
Bunny Hop

We wiggled…
Open, Shut Them
Dance Your Fingers Up
This is Big, Big, Big

We played…

We did two activities with my Little Bunnies. First, we did the rhyme Hippity Hop, Hippity Hay and we used all six bunnies. Later, I brought them back out and we played a Little Mouse style game with a hidden carrot. We only used bunnies 1, 2, and 3 for this. Some of the older siblings of my toddlers are good with number recognition, but the youngest are still relying on colors to identify which bunny they wanted to look under. I didn’t want them to get confused or frustrated with having two of each color on the board.

We made…

Some VERY cute bunny noses! These were a big hit. I encouraged the grown-ups to let their child fold the pipe cleaners themselves and a lot of them were surprised how well their littles did. This is a great craft for those fine motor skills. Plus, there’s gluesticks, and what three year old doesn’t love a good glue stick?

Our literacy tip…

Nonfiction isn’t just for big kids. Younger children love learning new things and getting answers to their questions. Our nonfiction collection is a great place to browse.
