Look how easy and quick you can make washcloth Easter Bunnies!
WHAT WE NEED:
- Rubber band
- Wiggly eyes
- Small pom-poms
- Scissors (to cut ribbon)
Step 1: Project Preparation
Read through the project then gather the materials needed for making the washcloth bunny. If you are doing this craft with a group of children, pre-cut the ribbon and make a supply bag for each child. Smaller children will need help folding the washcloth and putting on the rubber band.
Step 2: Roll Washcloth
Fold the washcloth in half on the diagonal to form a triangle. Tightly roll the folded washcloth from the open corner to the long side.
Step 3: Fold Washcloth
Fold the rolled washcloth in half. Next, fold the washcloth in half again, turning the loose ends back towards the first fold.
Step 4: Form Head
Place a rubber band around the washcloth about 2" (4 cm) from the second fold. This forms the head of the bunny, with its ears sticking out from the rubber band.
Cut a 12" to 14" length of ribbon, wrap it over the the rubber band, and make a bow. Pull the bunny ears into place and fluff them out a bit.
Step 5: Add Eyes and Nose
Glue the wiggly eyes and pom-pom nose on the bunny's head to make a cute little face.
Tip: Use the washcloth bunny as an Easter egg holder by placing the egg in the cloth ring behind the bunny's head.
That's it! Your bunny is done!
