Why We Love Crafts for Kids:
Art develops creative thinking, provides means of communication and self expression, increases self understanding, strengthens self concepts and confidence, serves as an emotional release, provides decision-making opportunities, develops appreciation for the individuality of others, aids physical coordination, develops work habits and a sense of responsibility, heightens aesthetic awareness and sensitivity, and generates joy!

For Children with Special Needs: This opportunity for hands-on learning with no wrong choices is ideal to foster self esteem as well.
  • Art projects are great for fine motor exercise, and using creativity.
  • If your child has a limited attention span, have all supplies ready before having him begin the project. 
  • Cut out the ears and cut the pipe cleaners ahead of time if your child isn't able to do this.
  • If your child does not like working with white glue (or it's too hard for him to squeeze it out) you can used double sided tape or paste, glue dots, or a glue stick. ADULT can use a stapler to attach the ears if desired.
  • As always, substitute construction paper colors for colors your child chooses :)
For Older Children:
An older child will also enjoy this project as is but may want to add more fun by making this a puppet. Cut an 11 inch x 1.5 inch piece of thick cardboard and staple to each end of the bowl to make into a quick puppet!

FEATURED BOOK:
A fun BOOK to read in conjunction with this craft is "The Velveteen Rabbit" By Margery Williams. This beloved classic was originally published in 1922! In this book a toy stuffed rabbit wants to become real, but he can only do that through the love of his owner. It has been awarded the IRA/CBC Children's Choice award. If your children like to pretend play they will enjoy this story about how toys can become real!
