After the sock turkey we made with the kids was a big hit we decided to try a bunny for Spring or Easter. Again, this was a big hit with the children. We did it with children ages 3-12 and they loved it. This sock bunny is a variation of one I found on Pinterest. I just made it a little easier with no sewing, which makes it a good craft to do with children off all ages. Follow the Step-By-Step directions below to make your very own sock bunny.
Materials: One calf length sock (I used a child’s size sock), tacky glue, rice, googly eyes, ribbon, small pom-pom balls, scissors, 2 rubber bands
Step 1: Pour a little less than one cup of rick into the sock. I gave each child a plastic cup of rice to fill the sock. Then secure it with a rubber band. This will be the body of the bunny.
Step 2: Pour about half the amount of rick used for the body into the sock, this will be the head. Secure it with a rubber band.
Step 3: Hold up the top of the sock and cut down the middle all the way to the second rubber band. These will make the bunny’s ears.
Step 4: Glue on the eyes, and use three cotton balls to make the nose and mouth of the bunny (one cotton ball on top (nose) and two glued next to each other underneath the nose to make the mouth. Tie a ribbon around the bunny’s neck and make a bow
Step 5: Glue one cotton ball on the back to make the bunny’s tail.
All done, enjoy
