Intro: BOO-BOO BUNNIES
If you have a toddler then this is a great project to do with them. It will even help your little ones too. Boo-boo bunnies are soft little bunnies the serve as and ice pack. All of the pictures that are on this instructable are from familycrafts.about.com
Step 1: MATERIALS
What you need:
a wash cloth or wash rag any size or color
a rubber band
googly eyes (if you decide to use the googly eyes you will need glue also)
Step 2: ROLL THE WASH CLOTH
Put the wash cloth on any hard surface shaped like a diamond. Then take the top corner and roll it as tight as possible to the bottom corner. Like in the picture below.
Step 3: FOLD THE WASH CLOTH
Now fold the two ends and place next to each other. Like in the picture below.
Step 4: FOLD THE WASH CLOTH AGAIN
Now fold it the same way again. Like in the picture below.
Step 5: FORMING THE HEAD
Now hold the wash cloth tightly and place the rubber band around the round fold on the wash cloth. Like in the picture below.
Step 6: FORM THE EARS
Just "fluff" out the ears that are on the back of the bunny. It should look like the picture after your done.
Step 7: ADD THE FACE AND DECORATE
Here comes the fun part. Now get out your sharpie or googly eyes and glue. (which ever one you chose) You will also need your ribbon if you wanted one. Now you can glue the eyes to the head or draw them with a sharpie, and if you want it to have a mouth then draw that too. If you have a ribbon, tie that around the rubber band to make it look good. Glue one pom-pom on the face as a nose. You can also glue the other pom-pom on the back for a tail.
Step 8: HOW TO USE YOUR BUNNY
If you plan on using your bunny as an ice cube holder, then i reccomend that you use a plastic refreezable ice cube so it isn't drippy. All you do is put the ice cube in it`s "belly" and hold tightly over the "boo boo". These also make perfect baby shower gifts!
Step 9: THE BOO BOO BUNNY POEM
If a boo boo has you feeling crummy,
Stick an ice cube in my tummy.
Hold it to your boo boo tight,
Soon everything will be all right!
