I remember posting this beautiful project on Instagram, noting that we had no idea WHAT it actually was, but we were inspired by the Easter season and so VOILA! A follower commented that it looked like a fabulous Bunny Tail Collection and the idea has stuck with us ever since!
If you, too, want to become a Bunny Tail Collector, we’ve got all the deets posted for you below!!!
WHAT YOU NEED:
pastel paint colours (we mixed in white paint with bolder colours to make them!)
a box with compartments (we used wooden trays from the dollar store that had art supplies in them!)
pom-poms (we used pink, purple and white)
optional: gold permanent marker
HOW TO MAKE:
Paint each individual compartment it’s own beautiful colour.
Allow it to dry.
Use white glue to place pom-poms in some of the compartments. We did this very haphazardly!
Optional: Outline the edges of each compartment with a gold permanent marker. We loved this addition!
Think about ways you can adapt this activity for other holidays, like Halloween or Christmas! I already see a jingle bell collection box in our future
What are some of our family’s Easter traditions?
Which tradition do you like the most? Why?
What are your favourite Easter foods?
What does Easter look like at your friend’s house?
Do you have friends that don’t celebrate Easter?
THINGS TO CELEBRATE & ENCOURAGE:
painting within each compartment and reaching all sides with the paintbrush (this is tricky and requires concentration!)
creating pastel colours with white paint
using an appropriate amount of white glue
embracing the haphazard approach (especially if they tend to prefer more order!)
Ohhhhh I love them. And I can’t wait to display them again next Easter!
