How to Play:

  • The person in the middle is trying to guess who on the outside of the circle is holding the bunny.
  • To begin, the person in the middle closes their eyes while the group begins chanting in rhythm, “Bob the Bunny, Bob, Bob, the bunny!”
  • As you are chanting start passing the bunny around the circle, keeping the bunny behind you.
  • Once the bunny is in motion, the person in the middle opens their eyes. S/he gets 3 tries to guess who is holding the bunny; the group is still chanting and passing the bunny.
  • If the person in the middle guesses correctly they change places with who was caught holding the bunny.
  • If the person in the middle does not guess correctly within 3 tries s/he becomes part of the circle and a new person is chosen to go in the middle.

Variation(s):

  • Give students the opportunity to change the name of the character (i.e. incorporate the school/local sports team mascot, birthday students’ name, etc.)
  • Play with multiple bunnies.
