When I was a kid, my parents were always creative.
From macrame to marble mice, my mom and dad spent a lot of time making things.
My dad was always taking arts-and-craft type things apart to find out how they were made...this apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.
My dad was also a public educator for 30 years. He taught 4th grade for most of those years but also spent several years as the art teacher. He continues to teach my kids with occasional impromtu art lessons when we are visiting. Mostly he makes fun things for my kids.
The favorite craft of my kiddos? Rings made from real dollars. When we were in Arizona last Christmas they were asking if he knew how to fold rings from a twenty. Those kids think they're so smart. (Trust me, I already tried that one.)
One of the many things my dad taught me a bagillion-years ago was how to make origami bunnies. And I have been making them every spring, ever since.
So today I pass on the tradition....
What do you need?
Paper (square) - it doesn't matter what size, as long as its square.
Tape or glue.
Optional: decorations - google eyes, cotton for tail, whatever your decorative heart desires!
Here we go:
(My paper has two different sides so you can see better.)
Now, in the pic above you can see my highly effective pink sticky notes...they are pointing to the side of the square that are our next bit of business....
Hooray! You're nearly there!
The next part is a little odd, and it was hard to write out directions so I thought I little video would be better.
