We know many of you will be celebrating Easter at home this weekend, so we decided to make today all about the bunny. Or the hop. Or bunnies in general, really! Hopefully these ideas help put a spring in your step. Happy Friday!

We know that staying home during COVID19 can be a challenge. Therefore, each day schools are closed, (cool) progeny will offer easy activities to keep the the whole family engaged. If you try any of these activities, post pictures to Facebook and Instagram and tag us (#coolprogeny and @coolprogeny). After all, we’re all in this together!

You can download a PDF of these ideas here.

Did you miss a day? No worries! You can view all of our (cool) fun at home ideas here.

Let’s Go To the Hop

Bunnies hop, Frogs hop, crickets hop…what other animals and creatures in nature hop? Head outside and see if you and your child can spot any of these hopping friends.

We’re Going On A (Window) Egg Hunt

Get together with your neighbors and create a window egg hunt! Let your kids decorate large paper eggs and put them in your window. Encourage your neighborhood friends to do the same — and let the kids go egg spotting on your walk today!

Egg Scrabble Scramble

Dig out your game of scrabble and fill those plastic eggs with letters. Have your child make words out of the letters found in the eggs. “Or So She Says” has a great Easter-themed word list you can use.  For younger friends, just put one letter in each egg have them identify the sound for that letter! 

Creativity Challenge

Funny Bunnies

Today is all about the bunnies and we have 2 crafts today that turn ordinary TP rolls (we know you have them) into cute adorable bunny friends. Your child can make a Toilet Paper Roll Bunny (these will make cute Easter placecards) or make a Bunny Stamp! We think the Bunny Stamp activity will make a “hoppy” Easter surprise for Grandma or friends your kiddos have been missing.
