Outstanding Teachers! Outstanding (OT/PT/ST) Therapists! OT to Go!!
April 2007 Crafts of the Month--"Some Bunny Loves You"! Not
only will you love these craft ideas for their bunny appeal, but you
will love them for their "recycling"! April is Recycle Month--so
we combined the themes! This idea came to us from a very dear friend of ours, Carol Hershkowitz, an Outstanding Teacher! We have been using her idea for years with great success!
1. Have an adult cut down the two sides farthest away from the handle to form face of bunny(see picture). 2. Have child draw in the face with markers. 3. Paint the features in as desired. 4. Cut ears from craft foam and glue into place. 5. Glue a stretched out cotton ball between eyes for a hair "poof". 6. Fill the container as desired.
These crafts addresses bilateral coordination, fine motor
skills, eye-hand coordination and proprioception skills (drawing on
something other than paper).
Cleaned Beach Shells ( or go to a seafood restaurant and ask for their empty clam shells) Permanent Markers Craft Foam/ pipe cleaners Ribbon for bow Tacky glue Cord or thread to hang Scissors
1. Draw a face on the shell, using the pointy end as the nose. 2. Cut ears out of craft foam and glue on.
3. Tie a bow (or make one using a rectangle of 2" ribbon and a
piece of pipe cleaner for the tie in the center) and glue it below the
bunny's nose. 4. Make a loop out of the thread/cord and glue to back of shell. Let dry.
