Are you and your child practically swimming in piles of unmatched socks? Celebrate spring -- and take care of a little spring cleaning -- with this creative craft that turns a single sock into an adorable rabbit.
What You Need:
2 black craft poms pom
1 pink pom pom
What You Do:
Have your child fill the sock with rice until it reaches the "neck" of the sock -- or the part of the sock that hits the ankle.
Help her tightly wrap a rubber band around the sock's neck.
Show her how to use scissors to make one long cut in the sock material above the rubber band.
Voila! Now her rabbit has two long, floppy ears. To make the eyes, have your child glue two black pom poms onto the rabbit's face.
Let her glue the pink pom pom below the eyes to make an adorable nose for her rabbit.
Now her rabbit is just missing a mouth. Help her cut two pieces of black yarn: one short and one long.
Have her place the short piece of yarn vertically directly beneath the rabbit's nose.
Help her glue the long piece of yarn under the short piece, curved into a happy smile.
