Is there anything cuter than a sweet little bunny?…maybe a whole bunch of bunnies! (What is a group of rabbits called anyway? A gaggle, flock, herd? If you know, you deserve a special prize. Email me at email@example.com) This bunny gift bag is a fun and easy kids craft that can be completed before the party to be used for favors or during the party as a fun group activity. Then fill them for each guest to take home with goodies. You could also save this idea and use it when the Easter season rolls around. And, as always, yours does not need to look like mine. This is just a starting point. Give your bunny your unique flair and personality!

- Use the black sharpie marker to draw bunny ears on the upper half of the paper bag
- Cut out the ears with the bag laying flat, cutting through all layers
- Trim the sides and back of the bag so that the ears are only showing on the front side and other sides are straight across.
- Glue the pink pompom in the center of the bunny’s face
- Cut each pipe cleaner into three pieces
- Use the Elmer’s glue to glue on pipe cleaners for whiskers-if you prefer, use thi strips of paper for the whiskers instead. They are easier to work with than the pipe cleaners.
- Glue the large googly eyes in place
- Allow glue to dry before moving on to next step
- Cut 2 oblong pieces out of pink construction paper
- Use glue stick to adhere in middle of each ear
Knowing how a face is proportioned and where parts go in relationship to each other is part of a group of skills called visual perception. Basically, how do we perceive what we are looking at? This includes things like sequential memory, figure ground, spatial relationships, visual discrimination, visual memory, form constancy and more. Difficulties with visual preception may lead to deficits in math, reading, writing and more. This is great simple activity to work on this skill.

- Use the q-tip to paint a tooth…a sort of house shape…about 1 inch below the nose
- Allow the paint to dry
- Use the black sharpie to draw on a mouth and add details to the tooth
- Open the bag up to full size and fill with goodies. I added a little bit of shredded paper grass for a nicer presentation.
