Getting Creative with Pom Poms-Bunnies in a Basket

Standard

For this week’s pom pom critters enrichment I did bunnies in a basket. The kids were very excited about this activity because it included a very small wicket basket for their pom pom friend to live in. All in all, they turned out like this:

What You'll Need

1    2″ pom pom

1    1 1/2″ pom pom (same color as 2″ pom pom)

Instructions:

Step 1: Glue the 1 1/2″ pom pom to the 2″ pom pom

Step 2: Cut the pipe cleaner in to 6 pieces, making 4 pieces a little longer in the other 2; and then fold them all in half

Step 3: Glue two of the longer pipe cleaners, pointing up, to the top of the 1 1/2″ pom pom, creating the ears

Step 4: Glue the other two of the longer pipe cleaners to the bottom on the 2″ pom pom, creating the feet

Step 5: Bend the tips of the smaller two pipe cleaner, like this:  

Step 6: Glue thebent pipe cleaner to the upper front part of the 2″ pom pom, creating the paws

Step 7: Glue the googly eyes to the front of the 1 1/2 ” pom pom

Step 8: Glue the TINY pink pom pom right under the googly eyes to create the nose

Step 9: Glue the white  1/4″ pom pom to the back bottom part of the 2″ pom pom, creating the tail

Step 10: Wait for your bunny to dry and then place in the basket

This is a cute idea to recreate for any reason, but I am thinking of bringing back a version of it for Easter.

I have provided pictures of the bunny outside of the basket to help all with show were it all goes. Good Luck!
