Toilet Paper Tube Bunny

{A joint effort by Mama and Mia, age 4}
  • toilet paper tube
  • white paint
  • paint brush
  • white paper or craft foam
  • pink paper or craft foam
  • scissors
  • glue
  • 2 googly eyes
  • black marker
  • pink marker (optional)
  • cotton ball (optional)
  1. Paint a toilet paper tube white. Allow paint to dry. (I used acrylic paint and a foam paint brush.)
  2. Glue on 2 googly eyes.
  3. Cut a small triangle from pink paper and glue beneath the eyes. (You could also use craft foam or just draw a nose with a pink marker.)
  4. Use a black marker to draw the mouth, whiskers, and if you want, teeth.
  5. Cut two ears from white paper and glue to the top of the tube. (You may wish to line the inside with pink paper or craft foam, or color the inside pink before gluing on the ears.)
  6. Once all the glue is dry, you can use your bunny as a finger puppet or place it on a table or shelf for decoration.

Extra options: Mia wanted to add a cotton ball tail to the back side, which you can't see in the picture. I had also thought of using white craft foam hearts or ovals to make the paws, but her face ended up taking up the entire tube so I decided to skip that part.
