Funny Bunny

Help your kids to make their own bunny ears and then spend some time hopping down the bunny trail with them playing follow-the-leader. This would be a perfect opportunity to get them to eat some bunny food—especially something healthy such as carrots and celery with a veggie dip!

Level: Easy

Time involved: Half to one hour

Materials:

  • Tape measure
  • White and pink foam sheets
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun
  1. Measure your child's head and cut a 2-inch-wide band out of the white foam sheet to fit. You may have to cut out two pieces and glue them together if you need a band larger than 18 inches.

  2. Cut two white ovals (for bunny ears) out of foam sheets that are 10 inches long and about 3 inches in the middle. Cut two smaller ovals out of the pink foam sheet.

  3. Glue the pink ovals on to the white ovals. Glue the ears onto the band and hop away.

Keep it hot (or cold)! No one likes cold soup or warm, wilted salad. Use a thermos or ice pack in your child's lunch box to help keep his lunch fresh until it's time to eat.
