These washcloth Easter bunnies are easy and quick to make, and they will hold a plastic or boiled Easter egg very well.

After Easter, you can use the bunny as a Boo Boo Bunny – just nestle an ice cube inside the circle instead of an Easter egg, and hold against those little bumps and bruises to ease pain and swelling.

 

Supplies
– washcloth – a large baby washcloth is ideal
– rubber band
– two small black pompoms or plastic, movable eyes
– one small pink pompom
– one medium white pompom
– small amount of thin ribbon or yarn
– optional: small silk flower
Instructions1. Lay the washcloth on a table. Roll one corner, diagonally, into the middle. Roll the opposite corner in the same way, so that both rolls meet in the middle.

Fold the rolled washcloth in half, as shown in the photo at right.

 

 

 

2. Hold the two sides together and fold the two ends backwards, over the top. Fasten a rubber band around the front area to form the head. Fluff out the two ends to make bunny ears. This photo shows a side view of the bunny so far.


3.
Glue the white pompom to the back, to make the bunny’s tail.Glue two small black pompoms in place as eyes. Glue a small pink pompom below the eyes as the nose.

 

Fasten thin ribbon around the bunny’s neck and tie it in a small bow. If desired, glue a small silk flower in the middle of the bow.

4. Your washcloth Easter bunny is finished now. But, wait – where’s the Easter egg?Slip an Easter egg into the open circle at the back of the bunny, behind the ears. You should find that the bunny will hold the Easter egg in place quite well.

Now all you need to do is set your bunny in a hiding place, ready for the Easter egg hunt.

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc. My business story started a way back in 2001... …after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions. The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources. The Parentguide.ca website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me. I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do! I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
