How to make the Shredded Paper Bunny Craft

- shredded paper/Easter basket grass
- paper plate
- cardstock or construction paper
- large wiggly eyes
- pom pom
- fuzzy sticks
- pink marker
- flower embellishments; optional
Start by adding glue over the entire surface of the paper plate. Stick on the shredded paper. We used crinkle cut paper in white, but making a pink, yellow, or other color bunny would be super cute too! Let dry.
Cut ears from the cardstock and color the inside of each with a pink marker. Glue to the backside of the paper plate.
Next, glue on the large wiggly eyes and pom pom nose. Then, cut a fuzzy stick to create whiskers. You can stick these on with glue, however, we used glue s to adhere it since it sticks fuzzy craft products on better.
Add a flower or bow tie if you’d like!
Isn’t it darling? Another way to make this shredded paper bunny is to use cotton balls instead.

Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale by Mo Willems
This is a cute story about a favorite stuffed toy, something most kids can relate to. The little girl and her dad visit the laundromat where Trixie is a great helper. On the walk back home, she realizes her Knuffle Bunny is missing. Since she is too little to speak, she has to figure out a way to tell her dad what’s wrong. It’s a charming story about the miscommunication of a toddler trying to say something while her dad thinks she’s saying something else. In the end Trixie says her first words, can you guess what they were?
The background illustrations are in black and white, while the characters/people are in color. It’s great for preschoolers and kindergartners.
This stunning book tells a brilliantly true-to-life tale about what happens when Daddy’s in charge and things go terribly, hilariously wrong.
