Hop hop! Who loves to see a bunny hop and nibble a carrot? They are such unique animals, aren’t they? Here are some cool rabbit facts: Bunnies live in groups and some live underground in long tunnels called burrows. Rabbits have super long ears and can hear very, very well. They are herbivores which means they only eat plants, and a baby bunny is called a kit or kitten.
We “hop” you like this hopping bunny craft!
Things you’ll need:
- 2 Paper cups
- Craft paint, ( bunny colour )
- Construction paper (bunny colour)
- Small piece of black construction paper
- Small piece of pink construction paper
- White pom pom or cotton ball
- Paint brush
- Googly eyes
- Glue stick
- Rubber band
Paint two paper cups the color of your bunny and set them aside to dry.
First, trace the top of your paper cup onto a piece of construction paper. Then draw two lines on either side of the circle to make the bunny’s head. Draw some long ears, two front paws and two legs with feet .
Draw the inside of the bunny’s ears and a little nose on your pink construction paper. Cut out all of your shapes.
Draw a mouth for your bunny and lines for the toes. Cut out thin strips of black construction paper to make whiskers. Glue these pieces into place.
Once dry, take a paper cup and cut two small slits per side, making flaps that can fold down. Put an elastic around one of the flaps and secure the flap with a stapler. Twist the elastic band to make an X and attach it to the other flap the same way. The elastic band should be fairly tight.
Now you can glue your bunny face, front paws and legs to the cup with the elastic band!
Here is a side view of what the top of your bunny will look like.
Ready to hop? Place your paper cup upside down on a flat surface, and put your Bunny paper cup on top of it. Holding the sides of the cup with the elastic band, push down onto the upside down cup, then let go! Boing! Hop hop!
Silly joke alert!
