The Bunny Pom Pom craft is both adorable and fun to make. Keep in mind that for younger kids, there will be a lot of prep work and guided support throughout the activity.
1. Print out a Totetude Bunny Pom Pom Printable for each learner. We prefer to use a heavier card stock, but plain printer paper will work.
2. Gather other materials: scissors, approximately 10 feet of yarn, tape (optional), hole puncher (optional), large plastic needle or pipe cleaner needle (optional), glue (optional) and crayons (optional).
3. Fold the Totetude Bunny Pom Pom Printable in half.
4. Cut both halves at the same time to create two identical shaped bunnies.
5. Place bunnies on top of each other and cut out the dotted circle for the tail. You can either hole-punch first or fold the tail to begin a cut.
6. You may wish to place tape, a small twisted pipe cleaner, or a plastic needle at one end of the yarn to help with threading. You may also wish to tape the other end of the yarn onto the back of the conjoined bunnies. This helps the yarn from coming loose.
7. Allow the learner to continually thread the yarn through the hole until the yarn runs out. Two or more learners can also work together. One learner can old the bunny and the other learner can take the end of the yarn and hop until the yarn is pulled through. They can switch after counting to 2, 5, or 10.
8. The educator should slip the scissors in-between the bunnies and cut the yarn in a circular motion. Be careful not to cut the actual bunny printable.
9. Once cut, either the learner or the educator takes a small piece of yarn and places it in-between the two bunnies. The yarn is then tied in the center of the tail to create a pom-pom.
10. The learner can either glue the bunnies together or write a message inside. The learner can also decorate the bunny.
