Sock bunny craft for kids

Materials:

  • One calf-length sock. You can use a child-size sock or an adult sock. the larger the sock, the larger the bunny.
  • tacky glue
  • rice
  • googly eyes
  • ribbon
  • small pom-pom balls
  • scissors
  • two rubber bands
  • 2 8oz cup per child

Prep: Each child will receive 2 cups of rice. The first cup should be filled to the top, and the second cup should be filled half-way.

Step 1:

Give each child the cup of rice that is filled to the top. I don’t like handing out both cups of rice at the same time because it prevents children from pouring both cups of rice in at the same time.

Pour the cup of rice into the sock and secure it with a rubber band. This will be the bunny’s body.

Step 2:

Give each child the second cup of rice that is filled halfway.

Have each child pour the cup of rice into the sock. This will be the bunny’s 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 bunny’s nose and mouth (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.
