Add a little color to the inside of the ears. Dot the nose and the cheeks. Using permanent marker draw in the eyes, mouth, whiskers and eyebrows and draw the inside of the ear. Roll a small piece of orange felt into a cone and glue several small strips of green felt to the top to form a carrot. Insert the carrot in the thumb pocket and glue in place.

Decorate the bunny with buttons, lace, scraps of fabric glued on as desired.

Stuff the body lightly with fiberfil. insert the dowel stick into the stuffing using a little glue on dowel stick to anchor. Gather the wrist band of the glove around the dowel stick and tie to secure with the jute.

Let the children write their own story about the bunny and use the puppet to act it out.
