This bunny hop game from Teaching Littles is great for gross motor skill development (also known as getting kids up and moving through the day). The bunnies are numbered so it also includes counting. You could add a sequencing element like hop on one, step on two, or hop on one foot or both feet.
The Feed the Bunny ten frame activity from Stay at Home Educator is a fun way to work on counting. These bunnies have dots on the ten frame on their bellies and you match them to the carrot with the same number on it. This is a free printable activity.
