We've got the perfect Easter décor solution using orphaned socks; so don't throw those mate-less toe warmers away! Have the kids dig through their sock drawer, so you can whip up a batch of Easter bunnies.
• Socks • Yarn, ribbon, or embroidery thread • Lentil beans or cotton for stuffing • Pompoms (optional)
1. Stuff the sock with lentils or other dried beans until 2/3 full. You can also use cotton. Leave enough room at top for the ears.
2. Tie the top closed.
3. Use a colorful ribbon to make a neck, separating the head from the body. The head will be about 1/3 the size of the body.
4. Cut the top portion in half.
5. Trim each half to make two pointy ears.
6. Glue or sew a pompom on for the tail and another for the nose. You can also leave the face blank or let your child draw a face with a Sharpie.
