For your Easter bunny

Is the Easter bunny at your place all set to bring gifts for the kids this Easter? Ours is and that is why we’ve decided to keep ready a special basket to welcome him this year.

What you need:

  • A cardboard juice carton
  • Different colored pipe cleaners/felt
  • Cotton balls (a lot of them)
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • A pair of scissors
  • Easter grass

What to do:

  • Push the spout of the juice carton flat against the sides and tape it down to form the nose.
  • Using the pair of scissors, cut out ears along the sides of the carton (the side where the flaps are taped down).
  • Bend the ears and make a hole under the nose in order to insert the different colored pipe cleaners. These will be the whiskers of the Easter bunny.
  • Stick on the cotton balls using glue to cover each exposed side of the carton. Put on a puffy tale at the back (the puffier the better!).
  • Next, the whiskers (read: pipe cleaners) need to be inserted in the hole made earlier under the nose.
  • Using pink felt, cut out the inside of the ears of the bunny, black felt shapes for the eyes, pink felt for the nose again and a red felt mouth (kids will enjoy choosing the colors of their choice in this step).
  • Line the basket with green felt… and you’re done!

Just set it out overnight and be ready to be greeted with an inviting Easter goodies filled basket in the morning!
