Kids can have fun with these R is for Rabbit activities as they learn the letter R. Download the free printables to make crafting, playing, and learning easy.

My daughter chose the word Rabbit for our letter R activities so I put together some fun activities and printables that would go along with rabbits and read the book, Peter Rabbit because we love Book Themed Activities. Since Peter always seems to be in Mr. McGregor’s garden and we have been spending time on our little garden, it was the perfect time to talk about food and nutrition. Both my kids (preschooler and toddler) had so much fun learning, crafting, and playing together as we continued on with our alphabet activities with the letter R.

  1. Your "R" activity and your kids are really cute!

    I came over on the Good-Tips Tuesday link up. I'm glad to find your site!

    My kids are now in college, but I often get to help with little children in my church. I will keep your activity in mind!

    Blessings to you,
    Melanie
