    Rip up the cotton balls. You don't want them to be huge, but make sure they're not tiny at the same time. This will be the bunny's fur so make sure you have enough!

    Glue the cotton to the paper plates. Make sure the whole plate is covered with the makeshift fur. Don't make the fur too thick otherwise you won't be able to add the rest of the facial features. Think of it as just a coating.

    Add the googly eyes. Simply add a touch of glue to the back of the eyes and stick them onto the face.

    Add the nose. Like the eyes, just sick on a jewel button. Now your bunny can smell you!

    Add the whiskers. This is where you can get creative. Use the pipe cleaners to make all different shape, colour and size whiskers. Will they be curled at the ends or straight all the way across? Really, it's all up to you!

    Display your bunny. If you like, you could hole punch a hole in the top of the paper plate and hang it up somewhere. Before you do this, make sure the glue is completely dry so nothing falls off.

    Cover a work surface with butcher's paper or some other paper or plastic sheet. Newspaper is not a good idea, as the print may transfer from the newspaper to the cotton balls while gluing.

    Glue many cotton balls together around the plastic egg. Ensure that they are added evenly around the body. This forms the bunny's body.
    • Be generous and use a lot of cotton balls. A fluffy bunny is a cute bunny.

    Make a small ball of cotton balls. Glue together, then glue at one end of the body. This forms the head.
