I know usually I do a recipe for my weekly Kids in the Kitchen post, but this week we did a craft and it was too cute not to share.
I think I’ve mentioned before that I run a Story Time at the local toy store, Toy Time (<—- click there for a 10% off coupon) on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month.
It’s a fun way to connect with other moms and to help Maddi make some friends.
Bunny Nose Craft
This week we read Pete the Cat: Big Easter Adventure (which is SUPER cute just like all the other Pete the Cat books).
In this adventure, the Easter Bunny asks Pete for help. Pete has to dress up like a bunny, gather eggs, decorate and then hide them. So we made our own bunny nose craft and hopped like a bunny. (It took us 20 minutes to get back to the car because Maddi had to hop like a bunny the whole way!)
2 white pipe cleaners
pink cotton balls
1. Wrap the pipe cleaners around the craft stick making them look like whiskers.
2. Glue the pink cotton ball on.
3. Draw a mouth.
