Although Let’s Eggercise can easily be adapted for children, here is a cutesy rhyming version to get them engaged and egghausted.
Here it is, sweet and simple:
Print the rhyme below, cut each couplet below the dashed line into strips, place the strips inside the eggs, hide the eggs in your yard.
Start off by reading these first three stanzas aloud to set the challenge.
The Easter Bunny is very wise, He knows to stay healthy he must exercise.
So join him on this hunt for eggs, Let’s run and jump and stretch our legs.
Hop to the first egg and do as you’re told. Open the egg and uncrease the fold. ————————————————————————————————————————————
Cut up the following ideas (or use your own) and place one inside each egg.
My ears are long and like to flop. Stand on one leg, and do 5 hops.
My feet are very big and long. Do a dance and sing a song.
My coat is very soft and furry. Run as fast as you can. Hurry hurry!
I have a bushy white cotton tail. Pretend to swim away from a whale.
I have white fur on my back. Do 10 super jumping jacks.
I have a pink, twitchy nose. Reach up to the sky, then touch your toes.
On my cheeks you will find whiskers. Lay on your back and make your legs do scissors.
I can use my teeth to saw a log. Squat down low, do 5 hops like a frog
It doesn’t matter where you are, For 30 seconds, jump like a star.
I carry my basket on my hip. When you go to your next egg, be sure to skip!
You could always conclude with a game of Easter Bunny Says.
