The spring bunny is a paper craft that kids enjoy as part of a number of different themes including a spring theme, a weather theme, an April Showers theme and an Easter theme.
The completed bunny is nice and big so it makes a fun decoration for a bedroom door or the family refrigerator.
I like the large pieces because they’re easy for beginning scissor users to cut out (gentle curves and straight lines). They’re also good for alternative coloring ideas (like finger paints) though pencil crayons are always my favorite!
As part of the project, you can share the April Showers action song (to the tune of I’m a Little Teapot).
Pitter patter rain drops
(wiggle fingers toimitate rain)
Falling from the sky
(wiggle fingers downward)
Here’s my umbrella
(action of opening an umbrella)
Hold it high!
(hands over head)
When the rain is over
(bring hands down slowly)
and the sun begins to glow
(make sun with arms)
Little flowers start to bud
then grow, grow, grow!!!
(slowly stand up)

Wife, mom and the woman behind the scenes of the DLTK's Crafts for Kids websites. The websites are a terrific hobby -- run by (me) Leanne, a mom with two girls as my official craft testers and my husband as my technical support. DLTK are the first initials of each of the people in my family (I'm the L!). Whenever we send out little cards or whatnot, we sign 'love DLTK' ... when I started the website I used the initials. Had I known the website would get actual strangers visiting it, I would have picked a less mysterious name but we're all stuck with it now!
