Farmer and the Bunny
This activity aims to build the fundamental movement skills of coordination (catching and throwing).
Have the children sit in a small circle, ready to pass the ball/bunny or any stuffed animal. Start passing the ball/bunny around the circle.
Those not touching the ball/bunny pretend to plant seeds in the garden (slap hands on floor or clap hands).
The ball/bunny is passed very gently, using two hands, from child to child. Tell children to bring ball/bunny close to their heart before passing to the next person.
Go around the circle a few times (have children their keep eye on the ball/bunny). Repeat with children kneeling, and then standing. Have children take one step back and try again, reaching to ‘catch’ the ball/bunny and bring him in for a squeeze (hug).
