Make a Sock Easter Bunny
Place stuffing in the toe of the sock, enough to make it look like the body and come up past the heel. Tie a ribbon around the top section to create a head. Stuff the head. Tie string around the top part of the sock. Tie it tightly. Cut the top of the sock in half vertically to create two ears. Add beads for eyes, and a pom pom for a tail and for a nose. Use some string to create whiskers and a small piece of white felt for teeth. Add a little color with paint or even mom's "blush" for cheeks.
Decorate a Grape Vine Wreath
Begin with any size grapevine wreath and add ribbon, lace, tulle, beads, jelly beans, cookie decorator candles, plastic or foam decorative eggs, chenille bunnies or chicks or anything else that makes it look like an Easter Wreath.
Make a Spool Easter Bunny
Glue a wooden bead or white pom pom to the top of a wooden or foam spool. Add pipe-cleaner or felt ears, a pom pom cottontail and nose. Glue jiggle eyes and white string whiskers in place and tie a ribbon around the bunny's neck. Use a marker or paint to add features.
Create a Beaded Egg
String beads onto pipe-cleaners and then shape several of them into a ball shape. Fasten by twisting pipe-cleaners or tying with small pieces of wire. Add ribbons.
CHILD SAFETY IS IMPORTANT
A responsible adult should supervise any child or children taking part in any of the activities listed on this website in order to avoid potential dangers or injuries. Their are no activities for children that are completely safe. Children are experts at finding ways to get hurt that never occur to adults. All activities should be supervised. The author/publisher of this site does not assume any liability for damage caused by injury sustained by conducting any of the projects on this site. The adults who are working/playing with children are the only ones who are able to discern whether a specific situation is safe or appropriate for a specific child or children.
Use Seed Packets to Make a Birdhouse Decoration
Fold top corners to the center on two seed packets. These will be the ends. Then take two seed packets and glue or tape them the the two ends to make a roof. Fill in with two seed packets placed horizontally for the side walls and one packet on the bottom. Cut a hole in one end to make an opening in to the house. Use a small piece of a stick or dowel to make a perch and glue a small decorator bird on the perch.
