Bunny Basket/Bag

Hi friends,
I wanted to share a simple little project my school kiddos make for Easter that is so super easy to make.
Here are the deets:

What you'll need:
*white lunch bag (or whatever color you want your bunny to be)
*cotton ball for the tail

Take your lunch bag

and follow this pattern to create the bunny ears & head. (We just eyeball it)

Cut it out while holding both sides of bag together.

Decorate your bunny however you'd like. This is where the kiddos can get creative & artistic. Hopefully better than my possessed bunny :( Maybe he's just entranced by my beauty ;)

You can cut a circle in half to make the front paws:
Oh ratatouille! I forgot, we add a bow like between his teeth and his paws. It looks cute so be sure to add it on yours :(

Then flip it to the back & add a drop of glue
And add your cotton ball on top for his fluffy tail

Now open your bag. The front flaps make up your bunny ears and the back flaps will become the handle to the bag/basket.
Add glue to the end of one of the back flaps
and stick the other back flap on it to create the handle.
(See the front ears & the back handle?)

That's all folks! Your bunny is ready to be filled with egg-y goodness :)
See??? Easy-peasy lemon squeezy.
Thanks for peeking! I'll be back... with a teacher Easter gift to share.
Gotta Go!
