These Easter Rabbits are an easy, fun activity for small children to create. They will enjoy a sense of achievement with this activity and should be able to complete it almost totally by themselves. I love using anything recycled, so when I discovered some cotton wool and colored lids lying around the kitchen, we put them together and made these wonderful creatures.

Make "rabbit whiskers" with the colored wool ( 3 - 4 strands).

Once the glue has completely dried, you can play all sorts of Easter games with your recycled creation.
