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


Spoon or funnel

Dried lentils

Child's sock

Rubber band




White pom-pom or cotton ball

Tacky glue


  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.
