We had so many Jars in our storage room, we use through out the school year for various reason and projects. We have jars brought in to school by parents, teachers finish a jar of something at home and hate to throw it away. Jars are useful! They however were taking up a lot of room, and we needed to down size the stock pile.
Mrs. Layne decorated her house this week in anticipation of spring. She really likes to change her decor to mesh with the current season. It was for these two reasons, that I came up with the idea to create these bunny jars! It is fun festive spring jar and can be used as functional decor! It can store your everything from your Jelly beans to you pens!
The kids painted the jars using tempera paint, We let those dry. I pre-cut out ears from fun scrap booking paper we had. We had the children choose their pom pom tail, two ears, and two googly eyes. We then hot glued them to the jar for the kids.
We had a great time making the bunnies, I'll keep this in mind for next year when the jar collection gets out of control again! Perhaps we will make a chick,lamb or butterfly next!
