Sock Bunny

Materials

  • An old sock (no holes)
  • Rice (about a cup)
  • 2 cups (one to measure and/or pour rice into sock and one to place sock on for easy pouring)
  • A few rubber bands
  • scissors
  • Permanent black marker
  • ribbon  *optional*

Preparation

Step 1:  Take the sock and place over a glass so it's easy to pour the rice into.

Step 2:  Poor the rice into the sock. You can use any type of cup or glass that would make it easy to pour.

Step 3:  Take a rubber band and tie the top closed where the rice ends. Make sure the rubber band is very tight around the sock.

Step 4:  Take another rubber band and tie it between the head and body to separate them.

Step 5:  Use another rubber band to make a little bunny tail by taking a little piece of the body section and wrapping a rubber ban around it to section it off.

Step 6:  To make the ears, cut all excess sock so that there's a few inches on top of the head. Then cut the top part down the middle. Using a marker, draw on a bunny ear shape and then use scissors to cut them out.

Step 7:  Using the sharpie, draw eyes and a nose onto the head of the bunny. It's super easy to just draw to dots for the eyes and an x for the nose.

*optional*
Step 8:  cut a long piece of ribbon to tie a bow around your bunnies neck.

Step 9: Give your new jumpy friend a name!!
