Well, after all that was said and done, I figured I was crafted out for the day, but not so for Noah. On the way home, he started saying, "Noah wants to make a craft please, Mama." What's a mama to do? I asked him what he wanted to make. He said, "a bunny. A brown bunny." Um, ok... So I did a mental inventory of our craft supplies already at home. What could I use to make a bunny? Then it hit me; years ago my parents used to do craft shows and my mom made all kinds of cool things, one of which was a boo-boo bunny! If you've never heard of it, it's a cute little rabbit made out of a washcloth with a hole to put ice in. When your child gets a boo-boo, you pop some ice in and let the bunny be a little comfort object while it numbs the hurt. Here's how we made it:
- thin ribbon
- googly eyes
- scissors & glue
- pom-pom for tail (and for nose, if desired)
STEP 4: Glue on eyes and tail. They're really cute with noses too, but we didn't have any of the tiny pom-poms on hand and the big ones looked goofy.
Well, this artsy mama is exhausted for today! Hope you all have a great one!
