By now you know that around here we love doing lots of cardboard tube crafts! This week the preschooler and I decided to turn a couple into an easy bunny craft!
This is one of those crafts where the preschooler definitely had his own ideas!
I decided I wanted a white rabbit, so I coated the tube with glue and wrapped white construction paper around it. Then I drew on a face, added a cotton ball tail, and used pink paper, with a bit of ripped up cotton ball glued on, for ears.
I gave him one of the pipe cleaner carrots from our Easter Sensory Bin, and he was done!
The preschooler had a different bunny in mind.
First, he likes the color brown, so we kept the tube just as it was. He drew on a face, and added lots and lots of carrots for his bunny to eat!
I helped him cut out brown ears, but he didn’t want to rip up the cotton ball to add to the ears like trim.
Nope. He had a different idea all together.
He was super excited about his bunny. And, it is the perfect reminder that “it’s the process that counts, NOT the finished product” when it comes to crafting with kids.
And the best thing about cardboard tube crafts?
Afterwards doing our bunny craft, we had some cute little bunnies to hop around the living room!
