Music Toolkit – The Bunny Hop

What You Need:

  • The Bunny Hop Song*

  • Players

Directions:

  • Select a favorite recording of the song “The Bunny Hop” and as you listen, be attentive to the “hop-hop-hop” sounds in the instruments. Here is a link to an example: https://youtu.be/DjFd-Wj0OSs

  • Listen again and this time jump like a bunny when the music sounds “hop-hop-hop.” Change it up to hopping on one foot or hopping to another location to make it interesting.

    Adaptation: Use a stuffed animal or puppet to dance during “hop-hop-hop.” Use a bunny or other animals such as a frog or kangaroo that hop.

This activity promotes physical strength and coordination while increasing attentiveness to auditory stimulation.

All activities should be supervised by an adult.
