It’s officially Easter weekend! The kids and I have been busy preparing for our holiday. Recently my son asked me why not all bunnies had tails. Confused, I thought what he may have seen and where? I asked him why he asked. He didn’t have a straight answer — he’s only 4 years old. I decided to create a fun game just in time for Easter but great all year!
I explained to both my kids that we needed to help the conejito find his colita. I told him we had to toss these fuzzy tails into his bowl and if it landed then maybe it could be his. Our bunny was a boy because my son insisted the bunny was Peter Rabbit.
Here is what we used to create our Conejito sin Colita Game:
- 2 foam sheets- 1 colored and 1 white
- A round lid- cardboard works best
- White Poms or Cotton Balls
- 2 Wiggly eyes
- Glue or glue dots
- A Marker
- Conejito Template -optional- (download below)
Let’s get started!
1- Cut a strip of foam sheet. Depending on your lid length will vary but we used a 2.5 inches wide strip. Having a gap is ok. It will get covered up with our bunny.
2-Glue around your lid. You may need to hold in place until it sticks.
3- Cut and trace your template onto the foam. Cut our the bunny shape in the colored foam and the ears in white. Glue them in place.
4- Add some wiggly eyes and a cute nose and smile. Glue to the back of your lid where the gap is. Hold in place until secure.
5-All done! Time to play!
We hope you are having a fantastic Spring season and Easter weekend. ¡Felices Pascuas!
