So, Juliet and I tried out these sock bunnies that we saw in Family Fun this month. I'm not sure how I feel about them...
On the one hand, it was a fun project, but on the other hand, I think they are ugly. Not sure where we went wrong, but maybe it has something to do with the quality of sock that is used?
We used some raggedy socks and we got raggedy bunnies. Maybe cuter socks would have yielded cuter bunnies.
The bunnies are filled with dried beans. Juliet loved dumping the beans into the socks....and also all over the floor.
Inspired by The Bunny Book by Patsy Scarry
We made the baby bunny and the daddy bunny. You probably already know about this book, but I love the illustrations so much I wanted to share a few pages with you.
Even the dedication page is beautiful.
The story is of a baby bunny whose future is being speculated by his family. Everyone has a different idea of what he will be when he grows up.
From an airplane pilot, to a fireman, to a circus clown, to a lifeguard--everyone has a different dream for this baby bunny. But through it all, the baby bunny smiles his knowing smile. He knows what he will be.
The cutest part is when you find out what the baby bunny hopes to be when he grows up: a daddy rabbit! Juliet always squeals with joy at this part.
He hopes to grow up and play with his own bunnies, buy them birthday presents, and read them stories when they are sleepy.
"And tuck them into bed at night. And that is what the baby bunny will grow up to be. A daddy rabbit."
It's just the kind of book that makes me smile.
