A Fun Springtime Craft!

I've been on the hunt for fun crafts to do with our kiddos again and here's the one I found for this week! You can find it at http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/crafts-by-type/animal-bug-crafts/animal-themed-crafts/animal-crafts/sock-hop-841022/ along with a ton of other fun craft ideas for any age and any time of the year from Family Fun. As always, this idea is borrowed and shared with you all; the picture and craft belong to Family Fun.

It's great because kids of any age can help in some way, plus it's a great way to repurpose something that you would otherwise throw away! Have fun!




Sock Hop Bunnies


Materials


Spoon or funnel


Dried lentils


Child's sock


Rubber band


Ribbon


Scissors


Felt


White pom-pom or cotton ball


Tacky glue




Instructions



  1. To make your own bunny beanbag, use a spoon or a funnel to add dried lentils to a child's sock, filling it up just past the heel. Close the sock with a tightly looped rubber band.




  1. To create the head and neck, tie a ribbon around the sock just below the heel.




  1. Use scissors to cut the sock's cuff into two ears, rounding the edges to give them the right shape.




  1. Cut a nose, teeth, and eyes from felt. Attach the facial features and a white pom-pom or cotton ball tail with tacky glue.
