HOW-TO : MAKE & DECORATE Bouncing Carousel Bunnies
Make templates for the body, tail and head seperately.
Draw round and cut the body from cardboard boxes, the head and tail, from card.
Glue bits of fabric or patterned paper all over the body. Encourage the participants to name their bunny and this will help them decide upon whether or not it's a girl or boy; good or evil; king or princess etc. This will lead them to decorating decisions.
While the glue is drying, draw the bunny's face using felt pens, add whiskers, inner ear shapes, nose and very importantly, teeth!
Prepare the bobtail. If you like, you can make pom pom tails, or simply add woolly fluffiness to a circle of card.
Attach the head and tail in the approriate places.
Staple both ends of a strip of 1/2” wide elastic to the back, (enabling a bouncy carry handle).
Add a sticker name and hop home.
