Here's what we made at the preschool before I left town in March.
Using two wood beads, some wool felt and a little bit of paint, we made these sweet bead bunnies. They had the option of painting the beads white, pink or just leaving them natural. Are you surprised to see so many pink ones?
The holes in the beads were to serve as an eye on the bunny. Don't you just love the one with the "eye" turned straight up?
To make them we started by painting the beads (you could use wood beads that already have color). I pre-cut the wool shapes making a long heart shape for the ears and a sort of four-leaf-clover for the feet. Then the kids simply glued them together tucking a tuft of scrap wool in the back hole for the tail.
