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.

Halloween Party Activity

GhostlySearchFind500

This fun search-and-find game is sure to be the hit of any Halloween party! To make this fun game, cut out masking tape to create shapes for the ghost’s mouth and eyes, and arrange the face on the outside of a 16 oz. Clear PET Plastic Jar. Use white paint or a specialty frosted-glass spray paint to paint the outside of the clear jar. After the paint is dry, remove the masking tape to reveal the face. Place 10–20 small fall-themed trinkets, shapes, charms, or toys in the jar, and then fill the jar the rest of the way up with small black or gray beads. Place a small amount of plastic glue around the rim of the jar, and screw the lid on. Once the glue has had a chance to dry, shake the contents together. To play the game, simply take turns seeing who can be the fastest to find a specific object inside the ghost!
