On Friday evening, Crevette wanted to ‘make’ something. For once, we had remembered to save toilet paper rolls and he was eager to turn them into bunnies.
Hubby was cooking so I could focus on Crevette (5 years 8 months), Beanie (3 years 6 months) and their artwork, which was lovely.
We had just about half an hour before dinner was ready so it had to be a quick one. I had a look on Pinterest for toilet paper roll rabbits, just to see what other people had done and get some inspiration.
We dug out the paintbrushes, scissors, googly eyes, PVC glue, a pencil and pretty scraps of paper before we got to work on our rabbits.
Beanie was once again really generous with the amount of PVC glue she applied to the paper, so there is no risk of those bunnies ‘losing their body’.
Crevette drew the templates for the ears and feet. Beanie was not really sure about using the scissors. She thought she would not be able to follow her brother’s lines, but after I had done it with her once, she grew more and more confident, which was nice to see.
They loved sticking the ears, feet and drawing the faces following my very basic template and were really proud to see their first bunnies take shape.
Crevette thought they would look nice with tails so he got some cotton from the bathroom and added fluffy tails to their cardboard creations. Check them out! Beanie declared they were ‘boyfriend and girlfriend’.
They made some more after that and dinner was ready so I finished the last two.
What do you think of our cute little rabbits?
I love it when something completely improvised turns out looking great!
