​RESOURCES

We already have these sorting carrots from Goryeo Baby. We’re going to try growing our own carrot top at home!

To tap into the current colour sorting sensitive period we put together a rabbit colour sorting tray.

If we had more time, we’d definitely be downloading this Beatrix Potter watercolour printables set from Fiddlessticks Ed.

We love these Forest Matching Cards from Montessori at Home, featuring rabbits, woodpeckers and more.

The Little Rabbit by Judy Dunn is a sweet story illustrated with photographs - here is a downloadable printable to accompany the book.

For older children, this biology and maths unit about limiting factors from the National Geographic explains why we’re not overrun with rabbits!

We have some grass scented play dough from OkiDoughKi and will be baking some bunny shaped cookies later in the week.

And finally, if you’re thinking of getting a pet rabbit, here’s a guide from the RSPCA.
