Leap Year

Hoppy Leap Year! 29th February comes only once every 4 years, and 2016 is the next time that will happen. To celebrate we have a range of leap year printables which you can use in the classroom or home, all with a hoppy leap year theme!

Fun facts: It takes the earth 365.24219 days to travel around the sun, and that's why we have an extra day nearly every 4 years. In a tradition thought to date back to the 5th century, a woman may ask a man to marry her on leap days!
