Children delight in tiny things, perhaps because sometimes they feel small too. As she assembles this bunny, your child will work on her fine motor skills. After she finishes it, she can carry it with her and pull it out whenever she needs a friend.
What You Need:
- White pom-pom with a 1 inch diameter
- 3 cotton swabs
- Tiny piece pink paper or felt
- 2 small googly eyes or two tiny pieces of black felt
What You Do:
- Help your child cut four cotton tip ends approximately 1 inch in length from two of the swabs. These pieces will be the rabbit’s ears and legs.
- Have your child cut off the very end of the 3rd cotton swab. This will be the bunny’s tail.
- Now she can glue the bunny’s legs onto the pom-pom making sure the rounded tips of the cotton swabs point outwards. It helps to dip the stems of the swabs in glue. Set the bunny down to dry.
- Glue the bunny’s tail on the back of the pom-pom. Let dry.
- Have your child dip the stems of the cotton swabs in glue and carefully apply them to the top of the pom-pom.
- Have her glue on the googly eyes or felt.
- Assist your child in cutting out a tiny pink nose.
- Encourage her to add the final touch and glue the nose onto the bunny.
