Bunny ears

My daughter is still wearing her Dr. Seuss "Cat in the Hat" hat around the house. So when I saw these bunny ears on one of my favorite crafty mom sites, I knew we had to try them! Here's our version. :)

You will need:
  • Two bunny ears cut out of cardstock (here's a great template)
  • Additional cardstock, long enough to wrap around your child's head (I ended up cutting this piece in half length-wise to make it longer)
  • Cotton balls
  • Glue
  • Scotch tape (if they won't want to wait for glue to dry before trying it on!)

Have your child cover one bunny ear at a time in glue.

While they are working on that, pull some cotton balls apart for them.

Attach cotton to ears. We didn't need nearly the amount of cotton balls pictured.

While the ears are drying, fit the long piece of cardstock to your child's head. I was going to glue this step, as I had done with the "Cat in the Hat" hat, but she was not wanting to be patient for glue to dry. :) Scotch tape came in handy.

I finished the edge of the cardstock with some wavy scissors, but that's certainly not necessary. My little one was practicing her hopping for the rest of the morning wearing these!


  1. I can't think of a year that goes by that we don't make the bunny ears! Classic!

  2. I like it with cotton!! We've done it with all paper
