ECM Kid's Craft Club - #1 {Bunny Puppet Tutorial}

The East Coast Mommy Kid's Craft Club is an easy and inexpensive way for kids to have fun crafting and experience the excitement of getting their very own mail.

For those of you that ordered this kit.... Welcome!  (If you missed it, there will be more coming soon, and you can still take part by gathering your own supplies and following the tutorial below.  If you want a .pdf version of the template, just send $0.99 via Paypal to ginastephaniebell@yahoo.ca, and I will email it to you.)

Here are the instructions for the first craft -- an adorable bunny puppet.


Step 1 - Make sure you have all the supplies (included in the kit):  two templates, two googly eyes, one black button, one white pom pom, a piece of pink felt, and a popsicle stick.  You will also need some scissors, glue, and a black crayon/marker/pen.


Step 2 - Cut out bunny (which has been printed on cardstock).  Then, cut belly and ears from pink felt.  (For younger kids, you may want to just color the template pink and cut the pieces out.) 


Step 3 - Glue on: ears, eyes, nose, and belly.  Allow to dry completely.  Then, draw a mouth and some whiskers.  (I used a black pen.) 


Step 4 - Finally, glue on Popsicle stick and a pom pom tail.  Cute, right?  :-)

That's it!  I hope you had fun, and I look forward to having you join me for the next ECM Kid's Craft Club.  


Let me know what you thought of the first edition of the ECM Kid's Craft Club.  You comments help me to get better, and I love hearing from you.

PS (It goes without saying... but I will say it anyway because I am an overprotective mother... "assist young children when using scissors, and be careful of the small parts included with this kit, as they can be a choking hazard for children under three".)

  2. Tonight, after opening her kit and carefully examining all of the components, Anna said, "Thank you Mummy, Thank you Gina Bell!" She was pretty excited. We'll send a picture.
