Tuedsay's Craft- Shoelace Bunnies


Craft foam in two colors

Pencil Decorative-edge scissors

Regular scissors

Craft glue

Googly eyes

Jingle bells


***You could also just use one piece of foam for the shape of the bunny, and have your kids color the rest to keep it simple.


For Parents to do in advance-

1.On the craft foam, draw the shape of a bunny's face with a light pencil line. It should be about 3 inches wide and 5 inches high.

2. Cut it out using decorative-edge scissors.

3. Trace and cut out a second, matching face.

Bring in the kids to-

4. Glue on a pair of googly eyes for each face

5. From a contrasting color of craft foam, cut out two shapes for the insides of the ears and glue them in place. (or just color them)

6. In the middle of each face, use regular scissors to cut two slits large enough to accommodate your child's shoelace.

7. Thread a jingle bell into the center of each lace, then through the slits so the ends come out the back of the bunny's head.

8.To make the cheeks, glue on the pom-poms just below the jingle bell nose.

9.Thread the laces into your child's shoes and tie into a bow.
