Sock Bunnies

  • Servings: Yield=1 bunny
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Ingredients & Supplies:

  • 2–3 cups (375–550 g) rice
  • 1 sock
  • Scissors
  • Marker
  • String or twine
  • Ribbon
  • 20–30 drops essential oil

Instructions:

  1. Pour the rice into a bowl, and stir in the essential oils until the desired smell is reached (approx. 20–30 drops).
  2. Using a funnel or a roll of tape to hold the sock open, pour the rice into the sock until it fills to the beginning of the heel of the sock.
  3. Shape the sock by pinching between where the head and the body will be, making sure that the body is larger than the head.
  4. Tie off the head tightly with the string, then tie off the section between the body and head.
  5. Cut off the top of the sock, leaving about 2″ (5 cm) for the ears above the head.
  6. Cut the ear portion of the sock in half vertically, then diagonally from the top of the head to the corner, creating an ear shape. Repeat on the other ear.
  7. Trim the strings down, tie a bow around the neck, and draw a cute face!

Extra Ideas:

You can also tie a little knot around a portion of the body to make a tail, or sew on a cotton ball.

Remove the ribbon, and place the bunny in the microwave for 30 seconds (or until warm), and let your kids enjoy the warmth while they play or take a nap.
