Adorable Rabbits

We have just had two beautiful weeks of school holidays here in Perth and it's back to school this week.

My own children are happy to go back to school and I am excited to go back to work because I have been teaching three year olds for years and they have always attended two half days. As of this week, they will bring their lunch and stay for a full day!!!

After lunch they will have a rest and listen to stories and music. I have bought lovely little mats for them to lie down on but I have also bought them a special little rest time friend to cuddle.

A lovely mum from school embroidered each child's name on a ribbon for me. I tied them around the rabbits necks and they look adorable! Thanks so much Angela- you are amazing!!

I chose these rabbits because they are soft and cute and I thought that they look like the rabbits from the story 'Guess How Much I Love You' and everyone loves that story.

My house looks like it has been taken over by rabbits.

The children will have to find their name on their rabbit, be responsible for looking after their rabbit and at the end of rest time, they will need to put them away in their pocket for next time.

I'm sure the children will love them !!


  1. Niccola that is a lovely idea! I am in the same situation - we changed from half days to full days mid last term and it really is working beautifully. So surprised how well the children have adapted but we did a lot of work preparing them (and the parents) and adjusting our routine to suit the children's needs. At our quiet time each child chooses a 'resting rock' - not as soft and cuddly as your bunnies, but the children lay the rock on their tummy or back and it helps them concentrate on their breathing or some just hold it in their hands. Love your blog and ideas - thanks!!!

    1. Hi Robbie. Thanks so much for leaving me such a nice comment. I love your idea of using a resting rock- that is an idea I will definitely try. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Those bunnies are gorgeous! Where did you get them from?
