by | Apr 9, 2022

Easter is coming up and the kids are getting so excited for the upcoming festivities. We’ve already done 3 Easter egg hunts and 2 Breakfasts with The Easter Bunny and they’re still begging for more.

This fun Easter Bunny Hop gross motor activity will be a hit for your preschoolers if they love hopscotch. Bonus: Free printable!

My daughter has been loving the game of hopscotch lately so I made this fun Easter Bunny Hop gross motor activity for her to do at home.

I included the free printables which you can download and print below. I made them in both color and black and white so you can have your child color the pictures as well.

How to Use

The directions are simple!

  1. Sign up and download the free printable bunny hop sheets below.
  2. If you choose the black and white images, have your children color each bunny.
  3. Laminate them (optional)
  4. Cut out the circles
  5. Tape them to the ground in a hopscotch pattern. I used painters tape and just stuck it to the back, but you can also tape down the edges to make sure it doesn’t move. I only used numbers 1-12, but I included numbers up to 18 if you needed more.

Have your child or student use two feet to hop on 1 and 2 and then 1 foot to hop on 3, and so on.

Variations:

If your child has trouble coordinating their body for the hopscotch activity, you can vary it in different ways.

  • Have them jump with two feet to each number as they count: 1, then 2, then 3, etc.
  • Have them jump with feet open and then closed (skipping the 1 footed hop): 1 and 2, then 3 with both feet.

Gross Motor Activity

This is a great Easter gross motor activity for little ones as they learn the following skills:

  • Hop on one foot
  • Balance
  • Jump with two feet
  • Gross motor coordination
  • Motor planning

This would be a great activity for a school hallways outside of the PT room to use during the week before Easter.
