I made a spring bunny activity for letter and number recognition and review. I printed the bunny and carrot patters on cardstock paper and the recording sheets on regular paper.
In this activity children pick a carrot and dab the same letter or number on the recording sheet with the dot-dot-marker or bingo dauber. The then feed the carrot into the bunny box.
I used an exacto knife to cut out the rectangle from the bunny's tummy. I placed cardboard under the bunny to protect my work surface.
I then took an empty box of tissues (I used the long box) and cut the opening to the width of the bunny rectangle. I then put self-adhesive magnets on the back of the bunny and then put another magnet on top of the first set making sure the sticky side was facing up. I then pressed the bunny on the box where it aligned with the opening. You can also use velcro if you wish.
This activity can be done with with or without the recording sheet. If you are not using the recording sheet children would just pick a carrot and verbally say the letter or number on the carrot before putting it into the bunny box.
I have included uppercase and lowercase letters as well as numbers 1-30. The patterns come in both color and black and white. I do recommend laminating the bunny and the carrots for durability.
You can see a video of this activity which goes into more detail about how we made the bunny box by clicking the image above. This activity is currently located in member's section which is also where I have added spring fine motor cover-up mats.
