Washcloth Bunny Kid’s Craft

With Easter hopping up on us early this year, I thought this Washcloth Bunny would be the perfect craft to make this month!  They are fun they are soft and they even have room for an ice cube to fit and they can double as a Boo Boo Bunny after the holiday is over!  {{I am a huge fan of multi-tasking crafts!}}

Washcloth Bunny Kid's Craft Idea for Easter or Boo-Boo Bunny!

Supplied Needed to Make a Washcloth Bunny:

  • Washcloths (I found a 3 pack at my dollar store)
  • 1/8” coordinating ribbon
  • Googly Eyes
  • Pink and White Pom-Poms
  • Hot Glue Gun/Glue sticks

Note:  I found a 3 pack of washcloths, the googly eyes and the package of spring colored pom-poms all at my local dollar tree!  I already had the ribbon and hot glue gun and glue sticks…but I saw glue sticks there as well!  {{I also love crafts that don’t cost much!}}

Washcloth Bunny Kid's Craft Idea for Easter or Boo-Boo Bunny!

To start off we are going to channel our inner origami knowledge and fold our washcloth into a bunny body!  Here is how we do that:

1. Lay your washcloth flat in front of you.

2. Roll the top left and bottom right corners of your washcloth into the center of the square like shown above. Secure the roll in the center with a piece of ribbon. snip excess ribbon tails.

3. Flip the washcloth roll over so that the rolled sides are facing down.

4. Fold the rolled washcloth in half lengthwise bringing both pointed ends together, like pictured below.

5. Next we are going to fold step 4 in half again, this time taking the pointed ends and folding them back towards the tied center.

6. Secure with ribbon about 1/3 the way on the folded washcloth. Be sure to tie in a tight knot and leave enough ribbon to make a small bow.

Here is what the washcloth will look like from the front:

7. Gently pull the pointed ends of the washcloth to the right and left and you will form the ears of the bunny. {You can now also tie the ribbon tails into a small bow}

8.  Add a large white pom-pom to the back of the bunny with some hot glue for the cotton tail.

9.  Add two small white pom-poms along with one pink pom-pom for the mouth and nose.   Use two of your googly eyes so the bunny can see!  Some people think projects aren’t complete with out glitter or a bow…in my house, projects aren’t complete until you add the googly eyes!

Washcloth Bunny Tutorial

There you have it…a super cute Washcloth Bunny!  Like I mentioned above, slip an ice cube into the fold and you have yourself a “boo boo bunny” for the rest of the year!  Perfect in an Easter Basket and for when your little one has a bump or scrape!

This craft is great to make with your kids!  They will love watching a regular old washcloth turn into a bunny before their eyes!  It is also a craft that would be great for group activities because the cost is so low!  You could get at least 3 bunnies for under $3 at the dollar store!  A bag of googly eyes and pom-poms go much further than just one bunny!  Think about this for your girl scout troop or play group activity!

    Oh my word!!!!! I had one of these for YEARS! Someone I knew worked at Montgomery Ward’s and they used them in their spring ‘decor’. That person made one for me and I kept it, fulling intending to figure out how to do it. Needless to say, I eventually tossed it. Had to have been at least 30 years ago. And here you are with it back! It’s a sign, I tell ya! I’m going to make one….or several!!! Thank you!!
