  • Hop on one foot, pick one, any one 
  • Hop backwards, sideways and forwards
  • Hop with your neighbor
  • Hop to different rhythms such as the beat of a drum, clapping your hands, a favorite song.

*Jelly Bean Sort- ask everyone to wash their hands before you play any game that involves handling food. 

Place a known quantity of jellybeans in a clean, clear jar.  Ask the children, in the entire Center including staff, guess the amount.  Have a prize available for the winner.

Bingo – use jellybeans for place markers in your favorite bingo game.

Mosaic Paintings – draw your picture, maybe an Easter Egg in nontoxic school glue.  Fill in the colors with jellybeans.  Use plenty of glue and allow for plenty of drying time.
