In the last blog article we listed some Fun Facts about rabbits. We also had a free download of a rabbit coloring page for the kids (or you) to color. In this blog we want to share some of our favorite craft activities that we found on the web that are simple and fun to do. There was so much to choose from – it was hard to make a decision!
How about making bunny bookmarks to use when you read bunny books from our next blog? These Easy Paper Bunny Bookmarks are from Red Ted Art. She has a quick video tutorial on how to make them. She uses regular printer paper to make two bookmarks. Once you get addicted to making bookmarks, you can check out how to make all different kinds of bookmarks – even monsters!
Another cool craft from Red Ted Art. I had to list these Bunny Napkins! She has instructions on how to fold either a paper or cloth napkin. Again, she has a video tutorial to make folding easier than trying to read instructions with all of tucking and turning. You can have older kids make them while waiting for dinner. 🙂
Seeing this craft reminded me of when my kids were little and how popular it was to paint with a potato. Once an adult has cut the potato kids can go to town painting bunnies. Use a Potato to Make a Bunny (Kids Craft) is from Crafty Morning. While you’re there, check out her ideas of how to make other animal potato stamps.
Someone older will have to help real little ones do the cutting to make the shapes but it will be worth it to make these adorable bunnies! Little ones can have the fun of doing the painting. Add some pom poms for nose and tail and some googly eyes and you’ve got bunnies ready to do some hopping. These Paper Plate Bunny Rabbits is from Kids Craft Room.
Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some rabbit puppets. Use our free rabbit paper bag puppet pattern designed by The Tucson Puppet Lady herself! It’s a great activity for the kids to color, cut out, glue and then play with.
Need a puppet with a moving mouth and makes expressions? We’ve got the pattern!
And if you are really bitten by the craft bug, you can use our Rabbit Puppet Sewing Pattern to make your own puppet. It is available as a digital download so you can start sewing immediately. We recommend using fleece and felt fabrics because they are inexpensive and readily available from craft stores. Customers tell us how easy our step by step patterns (with lots of pictures) are to follow especially after watching the video tutorials. In fact you can watch our free video tutorial on how to sew the rabbit puppet right now!
What our customers are saying:
“I love her patterns. Pattern well written and easy to follow.”
“I love how the puppet turned out. Please keep the patterns coming!”
NEXT BLOG FEATURES BOOKS AND FREE PUPPET PATTERN
In our next blog, we’ll be sharing a few books which feature rabbits that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download for a free rabbit hand puppet. You don’t even have to know how to sew, the whole puppet can be made using a hot glue gun. Stay tuned to our blog to get your free download.
