Toddler Activities Tuesday: Cotton Ball Bunny

It's been a few weeks since I did any craft projects with Grace and yesterday she started begging to do "CRAFTS!" So during Connor's nap time, I pulled out our supplies and we set to work making some Easter crafts. The first project that we did was a cotton ball bunny that I've seen floating around Pinterest. I modified it a little bit to include outlines of the kids' footprints. 

This one is easy and quick! It's great for a short toddler or preschooler attention span. 

Easter Crafts for Toddlers

Card stock (White and Pink)
Paper plate (optional)
Cotton balls
Pipe cleaners (pink and black)
Googly eyes

Take a paper plate or a circle cut from card stock and cover it with glue. I used card stock since that's what I had around. I let Grace cover the entire thing with cotton balls. She's very detail oriented and was very focused on making sure the entire circle was covered!

After your cotton balls are attached, let your toddler create a mouth and whiskers from pipe cleaners and glue on all of the bunny's features including the eyes. 

For fun, I traced both Grace's and Connor's footprints to create the ears. It worked out well since their feet are about the same size as I needed :) Cut out the ears and attach them. Ta-da! You have a cute little bunny face. Not too complicated, I know, but Grace loves it. She shows it to everyone who comes into our house. 

Come back next Tuesday for another fun Easter craft for your toddler or preschooler!
