Bob the Bunny
Time Required: 5 to 10 Minutes
Grade Required: Grades 1 to 5
A small object, preferably a bunny
Before You Start:
Gather group of students in a circle. Have students place their hands behind their backs.
Choose one student to be in the middle.
How to Play:
The person in the middle tries to guess who on the outside of the circle is holding the bunny.
To begin, the person in the middle closes his/her eyes while the group begins chanting in rhythm, "Bob the Bunny, Bob, Bob, the Bunny!"
As you are chanting start passing the bunny around the circle, keeping the bunny behind you.
Once the bunny is in motion, the person in the middle opens their eyes. S/he gets 3 tries to guess who is holding the bunny; the group is still chanting and passing the bunny.
If the person in the middle guesses correctly they change places with the person who was caught holding the bunny.
If the person in the middle does not guess correctly within 3 tries s/he becomes part of the circle and a new person is chosen to go in the middle.
Give students the opportunity to change the name of the character (i.e. incorporate the school/local sports team mascot, birthday students' name, etc.)
Play with multiple bunnies.
