My kids had so much fun choosing the colors for their bunnies. There are so many possibilities, and having the option to personalize them is fun.

3. Glue the bunny ears to the paper plate.

After the pieces are cut out, glue the bunny ears a few inches apart on the top of the plate.

4. Attach the cotton balls.

Next, glue the cotton balls to cover the plate. The cotton balls can be stretched out or left round. Note that if you leave them round, you will use more cotton balls than if you stretch them.

After you’ve glued the cotton balls, it’s time to add the rest of the cut out bunny pieces. Glue the nose near the center of the plate. Then, place the eyes above the nose.

The bow is an optional addition to the bunny. If you wish, you can attach it in between the ears or at the neck like a bow tie.
