Yesterday my oldest son had a play date with a little girl from his Kindergarten class. We walked home from school, had a snack, and they wanted to do a craft… This one came to mind because I used to make it with my own classroom every year. It’s fun to make in the spring because if you hang it near a window it will blow every so lightly with the spring breeze! We made three of these yesterday (all different in color) and the kids loved swishing them around and creating their own “wind”…. You can probably figure out how I did this just by looking at the picture, but if not, HERE’S THE SCOOP:
Cotton Ball (for the tail, not pictured)
Puff Ball for the nose
Roll a piece of construction paper into a tube shape. Glue or staple the seams. Cut out and glue on some ears, whiskers and a nose. The nose has a hard time sticking, so just press down for a minute or two to assure it sticks. Cotton Balls seem to stick great if you want to use one for the nose. We used them for the tail… Let these dry prior to drawing on the mouth and eyes. You can also use google eyes if you prefer. Cut out strips of tissue paper for the bottom and glue or staple them on. VIOLA a bunny windsock….
PS. In the background you can probably see that we water painted some giant Easter eggs… This took up A LOT of time if you’re looking for a filler!
