Last Minute Easter Craft

One great last minute Easter craft: My little one was bored today so to occupy her for awhile we did the Easter Bunny Shoe Topper craft from Family Fun Magazine. So simple, so easy, and I didn't even have to leave the house for supplies! Yay!

Take one piece of craft felt and cut out two 3 x 5 inch rectangles. Using pinking shears, cut out a bunny face 'profile' to use as your base. Using another color of felt, cut out shapes to make the inside of the ears. Use craft glue and glue on googly eyes; Cut two slits (horizontally, about 1/2" long and about 1/2" apart) to make the nose; Pull a piece of ribbon through the slits (with the excess ribbon coming out of the back of the bunny face) to create the nose; Glue on two small pom-poms for the bunny cheeks; Add the smile and whiskers with a black sharpie.

Tie on to shoelaces or shoes (Velcro straps in our case!). And let your little one emulate the Easter Bunny's hopping. :)

Happy Easter!!! :)
More later!  :)
