Spring will be here before we know it and more outdoor playtime for kids means the possibility of more scrapes and bruises. We have a fun and soothing way to care for their boo-boos… and cheer them up! With just a few supplies, these adorable handmade boo-boo bunnies can be filled with ice to help reduce swelling. Plus, when they’re not being used, they can be placed around the house as part of your Easter decorations.
What You’ll Need:
- Rubber Bands
- Colorful Ribbon
- Large Plastic Easter Eggs
- String or Yarn (Matches Washcloth Color)
- Googly Eyes (Optional)
Easy Step-by-Step Directions:
- Starting at opposite corners, roll the washcloth from each corner to the center creating two rolls next to each other.
- Fold the rolled length of washcloth in half (rolled side in) around a plastic Easter egg. Draw the washcloth tight above the egg and secure with a rubber band.
- Laying Bunny (Blue) — With the egg laying flat, fold the ends of the rolls back over themselves toward the egg to create the head and ears. Secure with a second rubber band (which will wrap around the first rubber band).
- Upright Bunny (White) — Cinch the washcloth approximately two inches above the first rubber band to create the head and ears. Secure with string or yarn.
- Hide the rubber bands by tying ribbon into a bow on top of them. Finish your bunny by gluing on googly eyes. If you will use these with very young children where choking is a concern, you can skip the googly eyes or even draw eyes on with markers.
- When your little one gets a boo-boo, simply pop out the egg and fill it with a couple cubes of ice, then place it back in the center of the boo-boo bunny.
Make extra boo-boo bunnies and fill them with candy to hand out as gifts for your Easter party guests or for your child’s classmates.
