It’s almost Easter and with the weather being crazy here my toddler is getting restless and so am I. Honestly, there is only so many episodes of P J Masks I can watch before I start twitching. (But at least my child’s not into Caillou! I can’t stand that show with that whinny little kid. I’ve literally dive for the remote, whenever I hear that dreaded intro song.) Today I wanted to mix things up a little bit with my little guy. Go a little old school by making Bunny Mask and using our imaginations instead of turning on the tv. I’m going to show you how to make your very own Bunny Mask.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Sheet of White Construction Paper
1 Sheet of Pink Construction Paper
Hot Glue Gun or Elmer’s Glue
3 Black Pipe Cleaners
1 Cotton Ball
Grab the pipe cleaners and cut them in half. Set aside. Then trace the bowl. (You’ll want to pick a bowl that’s about the size of your child face.)
Next you’re going to slide the bowl up to the top of the circle you’ve already made. You are going to trace the one side of the bowl. Then move it over to meet the line you’ve perviously created. (This will be the rabbit ears)
Then you are going to cut the rabbit out and trace only the ears on the pink piece of construction paper. Once you’ve traced the ears, you’re going to draw the inner ear. (I just free handed it. It doesn’t have to be perfect just fun.) When you’ve drawn the inner ear cut it out and glue it on the bunny.
Using something small and round trace the eye holes. ( I used my reusable K-Cup thingy) Cut out the eye holes. ( I personally hate cutting the eye holes. They are they worst but I didn’t want my kid running into things.)
Next you are going to glue on the nose and whiskers. Draw the mouth of the rabbit.
Lastly you are going to apply a piece of scotch tape on each side of the mask. Then punch a hole in the tape. (This insures that when you tie the ribbon or string to it, it won’t tear the paper.) Tie a piece of ribbon to either side of the mask. Then place the mask on your little one (or yourself) and let imagination and giggles take over. Enjoy!!
