Bunny Dramatic Play Ideas
We're making personal
puppet theatres and bunny sock puppets and the kids are writing simple
shows using our sight words ex. "I like the bunny. The bunny has blue
ears. The bunny has a pink nose.
The bunny is nice. I like the bunny." They are writing their script
(with help) and putting on a show.
When we made the theatres in 1st grade, we used a bunny joke book and
the kids each wrote
out their own bunny joke to perform with their puppet. Puppets are a GREAT
way for nervous
emergent readers to "hide" while they practice reading.
Bunny & Play Food
Provide a stuffed bunny and plastic or paper rabbit
food in the area
(carrots, lettuce, grapes, etc.) so
the children can "feed" their bunny.
Place bunny ears
made in art in the dramatic play area or you
purchase fuzzy bunny ears to place in the dramatic
Ping-Pong Finger Puppet Bunny
circle on your ping pong ball large enough to put your finger through.
Carefully make a small hole in the middle of this circle so that it fits
Cut out two ear shapes which should be 1 cm wide at the bottom. With a
knife cut two 1 cm slits in top of ball and insert ears. Draw in rabbits
face with felt-pens.
Make whiskers by threading 3 or 4 lengths of waxed thread through each
side of the nose. Use a small ball of cotton wool for the tail at the
