Hungry Bunny (Conejo Hambriente)

I can't believe I didn't blog this earlier.  I made this AWESOME Hungry Bunny from a multi-post tutorial from Sheepdog's Fleece blog (love her cute crochet projects).

For Spanish for Preschoolers we played with el Conejo Hambriente many times to teach counting and the names of vegetables.  I made up a little rhyme to go with the game:

El conejo tiene hambre, el quiere comer (I made him jump at the veggies)
¿Cuantas verduras hay que pueden ver?
(We counted the veggies) Uno, dos, tres, cuarto, cinco, seis, siete, ocho!
El conejo come uno! (I would get one of the kids to pick a veggie for him to eat, with great gusto & lots of yum yums)

The veggies are:
Hongo = mushroom
Rabano = radish
Kol o lechuga = cabbage or lettuce
Zanahoria = carrot
Remolacha = beet
Tomate = tomato
Elote o maize = corn on the cob or corn

Chiquita loves playing with it by herself too!

  1. I love all the little vegetable, too cute!

  2. He looks great! I am so glad you made it into a lesson for the kids. My kids love to play with their hungry bunny too. I will have to teach them the Spanish names for the vegetables and the rhyme. It is wonderful!

  3. Oh this is so cute!

    Thanks for stopping by The Sunday Showcase, hope to see you again this week!
