I think I have found the cutest Easter craft ever. The great thing about this craft is kids of ALL ages love it. I LOVED it and I am a grown woman. I can’t wait to make more in different sizes and colors. My daughter and I made one that matches her room so she could set it on her dresser, but turns out she actually just carries it around all day. These are so fun to do for a family night, girls night, or even a church youth night activity.
All you need is:
- Long socks (make sure you get Easter-y colors!)
- rubber bands
- paint (white, black, and pink)
- twine or ribbon
- small paint brush
- Pick the color sock you want your bunny to be and start to fill it with rice (stop filling when you have reached the desired size you want your bunny’s body to be).
- Tie off the body portion with a rubber band.
- Start filling the sock with rice again but stop when you’ve got the right size head.
- Tie off the head portion with another rubber band.
- The rest of the sock that is left will be your bunny’s ears. Take the scissors and cut down the middle to form two halves. Now trim those pieces as desired to make two little ears.
- Paint your bunny’s whiskers, eyes, nose, and teeth with your small paintbrush.
- Now give your bunny a nice bow around his neck and ears with the twine or ribbon and you are finished!
- You can also use felt or a fabric of your choice to hot glue a belly on your bunny, but that it optional.
I’m just going to leave these bunnies out all year long because I don’t think I can make myself take them down!!
