Doily Rabbit Craft Materials
Lets make it!
Start by cutting out some ears from white card and then cut the same shape out of pink paper or card, make the pink ones slightly smaller though so these can fit in the middle of the white ears. You can use paper for this but card or card stock is a lot better as it will hold up and if you’d like to display your rabbit afterwards you might not want the ears flopping over it’s face! Stick the pink insides in the middle of the white ears and then stick these onto the top of your doily with some glue.
Next up cut out a black nose and whiskers from your black card and some pink cheeks from your pink card. Of course you don’t *need* pink cheeks but I think they’re way cuter and cuteness is very important in my opinion!
All that’s left to do now is add your eyes and mouth. For the mouth I’ve used a black pen to draw it in and for the eyes I’ve used some more of the black card, if you look at the long image above you’ll see I tried out two different styles of eyes, I’m still not sure which one is my favourite? You could also draw on your nose and eyes for your rabbit if you would prefer.
Rabbit Books For Kids
My kids love a themed story to go along with what they’ve been doing and I think most kids are the same! These rabbit themed books all sound fantastic and would be great for reading this Spring or maybe as a little Easter present. Which would be your kids favourite?
- Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney – a classic rabbit book for children
- That’s Not My Bunny by Fiona Watt – we love the That’s Not My… series and they’re ones that my kids still like a look through year after year
- Big Bad Bun by Jeanne Willis – we have this book and it’s been read so many times it’s starting to fall apart a bit!
