Make a funny bunny with paper springs, and watch it wiggle, wave, and hop to life.
What You'll Need:
Cotton ball or white pom-pom
Cut two 1×8-inch strips of construction paper. Tape one end of each strip together into an L-shape. Fold the bottom strip back over the top strip. Fold the other strip back over the last strip. Continue folding the strips back and forth to make a spring. When you get to the end of the strips, tape the ends together to hold them in place. Make 3 more springs.
Draw a bunny shape on a piece of construction paper. Draw in the bunny's features. Glue each spring to the bunny's body for arms and legs. Draw 2 paws and 2 feet on a piece of construction paper and cut them out. Glue the paws and feet to the spring ends. Glue a cotton ball or pom-pom to the back of the bunny for the tail. Place your spring bunny in an Easter basket, or hang it on the wall.
