Bunny crafts aren’t just for Easter time, toddlers and preschoolers readily identify with these animals because so much media is directed towards them with bunny themes: books, TV , even clothing for little ones often have fuzzy little bunnies on them. So grab some cotton balls and enjoy this activity from our contributing writer Katy.
This is a great, easy activity that you can do with your child if they have the motor skills or you can create it and then share it with them if they don’t.
You need a heavy piece of white paper, cotton balls, scissors, and glue.
1. Cut out the shape of a rabbit out the white paper. If your child is able, you can have them do it themselves.
2. Sit down with your child, add a line of glue, and then add the cotton balls. We also practiced taking turns for this activity. We had to move Charlie’s arms into the position at first, but he quickly got the hang of dropping the cotton balls into place.
3. Cover the paper with cotton balls. We took turns since Charlie can be a little slow all by himself.
This activity could easily be done with almost any animal and cotton balls of all colors are available at craft stores.
Book We Enjoyed
It’s Springby Samantha Berger and Pamela Chanko. Illustrated by Melissa Sweet
This is a simple book with a rhyming rhythm about the arrival of spring. The illustrations are precious. Definitely for younger kids.
