Where Da Bunny At? is a game that lets your entire crowd participate as you ask that age-old question "Where Da Bunny At?" Plus, it works to some really fun music!
For this game you'll need 3 or 4 bunny puppets. The cheaper the better but they should be identical.
Each bunny puppet will be given to a leader or volunteer who will find a barricade or other surface to hide behind that will also act as a makeshift puppet stage for the game.
You trigger the "Where Da Bunny At?" song and let it play. The song asks "Where da bunny at?" three times and then, on the fourth bar or measure, it asks "Where?" and it stops.
It's at that first beat of the four measure that one of the bunny puppets will pop up out of its hiding spot.
Check out this Very Helpful Visual© for some visual reinforcement:
The crowd has to yell and point at the bunny. The first person (or team or whatever) to find the bunny wins!
You will want to prepare your puppeteers beforehand and possibly give them an order in which their bunny puppet should appear...but also more than one bunny puppet at a time gives more people a chance to win.
This is a simple game that requires almost no setup but it is high energy and very engaging! Part of what makes this game so fun is the chaotic nature of it and it's a fun way to help dispel some crowd energy before a teaching moment.
