The little rabbit

My littleones, have developed a real interest in rabbits, especially our pet rabbit, they have also collected up a few of the schleich rabbits and hutch too, I really do like the schleich toys, they are beautiful. If you are after detail planning to the EYFS, please do scroll to the bottom of this post to find it.

 I created a story box to go with The Little rabbit story, this gives the children a chance to recreate the story and printed of these cute Printables for the little rabbit story box. They love to match up the pictures to the toys in the box.

They expanded their own play by adding a couple of arches from our rainbow to make a run for the rabbits and a horse.

We made some very cute (even if I do say myself) cardboard roll rabbits.

Fun in the kitchen making some home made crackers.

                                                          Home Made Cracker Recipe
400g plain flour
                                                                     2.5ml salt
                                                                     225ml water

Mix all the ingredients together and then knead well on a floured worktop for 10 minutes.
Roll out the dough, the thinner the better and use cutters to cut out your chosen shape.
Place on a baking tray and prick all over.
Bake at Gas 4 for 8 to 10 minutes or until a little crispy around the edges.
They store well in an air tight container and my after schoolers love these as a snack.

We used a cardboard box to make a hutch for the larger toy rabbits that we have, note to self, next time make sure I have a box big enough for at least one child to get into as they wanted a hutch for themselves to play in.

Fun painting and sticking to make some rabbit pictures, can you spot the hungry rabbit eating some grass? As we made these pictures we talked about what rabbits like to eat and how to keep them healthy.

Butterfly printing, I love the look on the children's faces after they open up their paper to reveal their butterfly print, it's brilliant.

Then a game of matching rabbits, not necessarily as easy as it looks. Found these Rabbit matching game. I will also use this game as part of our Easter activites.
