Bunny Hop

Bunny Hop is an easy and fun Easter egg hunting game to play that is suitable for very young children who are too young to read or write. It can be played indoors or outdoors.

Age: Young children

No. of players: 2 or more

Equipment: One large Easter egg, or a bag of smaller eggs, per child; a set of photocopied bunny feet for each child. Each set of feet should, if possible, be printed on different coloured sheets of paper. For example, if you have 5 children playing then you could have sets of blue, green, yellow, red and white bunny feet. One child has one colour for their set. A set of bunny feet will contain as many sheets of printed paper as you will need to complete the hunt. You can download the bunny feet here.

Time: Approximately 5 minutes

Bunny Hop
Prior preparation is needed before you play Bunny Hop. Draw or download the bunny feet and make as many copies as you need, with different colours for each player. Each player will probably need at least ten sets of bunny feet to make the game more fun as they chase all over the house or yard.

1. Choose hiding places for each child's egg and then place bunny feet at regular intervals from the starting place (for example, the lounge room) until they finally reach the egg. The egg may or may not be visible from the final bunny feet but it will be very close and can be reached. For example, you may hide the egg under the child's pillow. The bunny feet will lead right up to the bed but the child has to look under the pillow to find it. The feet can be placed throughout many rooms in the house (or all over the yard) before they reach the final destination.

2. Each child starts at the starting point and on the word "Go" hops like a bunny from one set of feet to another, following their own particular colour of bunny feet until they arrive at the final bunny feet sheet. They then search around the area until they find their Easter egg.

CAUTION: Jumping on paper can be slippery and might cause an injury. It may be better if children jump next to the bunny feet rather than on them.

Note: If there are a number of children playing Bunny Hop, the bunny feet can cross over each other, however, the final destinations should be in different areas or rooms. For more fun have the children follow the feet throughout different rooms of the house before reaching their destination. Make sure there's lots of encouragement from the audience.
