Virtual Book Club For Kids (Margaret Wise Brown)

This month we are featuring Margaret Wise Brown for the Virtual Book Club!

Lucas has really been enjoying the story of The Runaway Bunny, and with Easter coming up I decided this would be the perfect time to do a bunny themed activity.

We made our own rabbit masks out of a few household items.

You will need:
Rabbit face template (we used a template from Usborne Activities: Easter Things to Make and Do)
Brown, white and pink cardstock
Pipe cleaner cut into four equal lengths
Small hole punch

We started by gluing the ears onto the template.

Next up was placing the nose and whiskers.

Cut a slit in the middle of the template up to the nose. This will allow the mask to stretch and fit over your child's face a lot easier.

Place two small holes on either side of the mask, and thread some elastic through.

My boys were thrilled with their bunny masks!

They had to test out how well they could hop as bunnies, and so a lot of jumping around the dining room was in order- the masks brought out their inner rabbit! They both looked adorable and loved having their very own masks.
