Fun For Baby
In spring, flowers blossom and birds sing—what better time to create some fun and lovely things? Keep these ideas handy, when April showers start to rain. And, don't forget to leave one or two for that certain bunny who might come to visit you.
This fun project is part craft, part great photo op! Using some simple materials, you can turn your baby into the cutest bunny since Peter Cottontail. First, glue big white pom-poms or cotton balls together until they are about the size of a softball. Then glue your rabbit tail onto a fresh diaper, or fasten the tail to a safety pin with a couple stitches of thread and attach it to your favorite little outfit. Fashion bunny ears with a piece of cardboard cut out into two bunny ear shapes (be sure not to make the ears too long or they won't stand up). Paint the ears white, with some pink paint in the middle, and glue extra cotton balls around the outer edges. Fold the bottom of the ears and glue them onto a headband. With a fuzzy little tail and adorable rabbit ears, all baby has to do now is sit still for pictures!
This craft will get baby giggling and undoubtedly add a treasured addition to your baby album. While this project is easy enough for baby, toddlers and preschoolers can have fun making it too. Cut out a five-inch diameter circle to make a bunny head. Add extra foam pieces for the eyes, nose, and mouth. Next trace your baby's feet onto a sheet of pink or white craft foam. Cut out and glue part of the heel portion of the foot cutout onto the back of the bunny head. Finish off this cute keepsake by writing the date and your baby's name, age, height, and weight onto the Footsy Bunny's ears.
