What kind of games can you play for Easter? You will love this bunny themed Easter movement game for toddlers and preschoolers!
This printable movement game is easy to download and print out for a low prep Easter party activity!
It's really as easy as it looks. Print out the cards, tape them to the ground, and turn on some music! Your kids will thank you!
Kids love this game because they get to hop like a bunny! Parents love it because it gets kids moving around while they get to sit down and take a break. It's so simple to pull together too. If you have any big kids, you can even put them in charge of the game, like I did!
Here's what you need to play this Easter Movement Game:
- Printable Movement Cards
- White cardstock
- Prizes or candy
- Tape to stick cards to the floor
How do you do a candy (or prize) hop for Easter? This Easter movement game is so easy!
- Print out the movement game cards
- Tape them in a circle around whatever room you'll be playing in. Hardwood floor is easier than carpet.
- Cut up the calling cards (the smaller bunny pictures) so that you have small pictures of each of the colorful bunny cards.
- Turn on some music and tell kids to HOP around on the cards in a circle, all going the same direction.
- Stop the music and pick one of the small picture cards to show. Whoever is standing on that picture can go and choose a prize.
- Repeat until all kids have gotten a prize (or 2 or 3).
** Keep an eye out for kids who haven't gotten a prize yet and tweak the game a bit to make sure that everyone gets around the same amount of prizes/candy.
