Sounds and rhythm are a big part of A Thumping Great Rabbit so take the opportunity to do some percussion-based music work that children will love.

Rabbit’s great skill is drumming and children can learn some of Rabbit’s skills with these hand-drumming activities. Hand drumming is a rewarding group activity that can be enjoyed on many levels. And it’s easy to get started, even with very young children. You can take this activity as far as you like – you can simply cherry pick sections of the story for short but satisfying music sessions, or you could set the whole thing to music, turning it into a musical performance for the rest of the school or parents.
