*Special thanks to my Japanese friend Misa for sending me some lovely two sided chiyogami paper. I cut out the pink bunny ears and checkered feet from the same sheet.

Step 3 – Use the checkered and plain papers to cover the cardboard shapes. Note: For bunny nose adhere checkered pink paper to one, then glue whiskers behind that (In my example, I glued an identical sized circle on the other side of the whiskers.)

Step 4- Adhere bunny feet using glue gun.

Step 5- Adhere cover to paper roll using a glue gun. Allow glue to cool. Cut slits on the cover using cutting knife; insert and adhere bunny ears using glue gun.

Step 6 –(Optional)- You can include a pre-drawn bunny smile in your kit. Using a black permanent marker, draw a bunny smile on the same type of paper you used to wrap the roll and put 2 sided tape on the back to turn it into a sticker.
(Kids can either stick it to bunny or use it as a guide to draw freehand)

There you go- you just finished The Polka Bunny Sticker Activity Kit. Have a fun Spring-Easter activity with your little artists. DSC01017
