an activity for preschoolers:
These precious bunnies and chicks are a delightful way to celebrate the season!

before you begin:
Gather the following materials: large, small and mini pom-poms, wood circles, glue, wiggly eyes and felt. Rainbow-striped pom-poms and other bright colors are especially popular for this activity.

activity goals:
To create decorative standing bunnies and chicks for dramatic play while developing fine motor skills.

This activity is a great way to practice color recognition as children mix and match different colors of pom-poms.

let's get started

step 1
Select a large pom-pom for the body and a smaller pom-pom for the head of each chick and bunny.
step 2
Using glue, attach the small pom-pom to the large pom-pom on top to form the head.
step 3
For the bunny, attach an even smaller mini pom-pom to the back as the tail.
step 4
Glue wiggly eyes onto the bunnies and chicks.
step 5
Use felt to make ears and a nose for the bunny and a beak for the chick, and then glue them on.
step 6
Glue completed figures onto wood circles so that they are easy to play with!
