Paint eyes, mouth, and cheeks on the back of each spoon. Let dry. Tie three 1-1/2″ strands of heavy black thread together in the middle and glue them above the mouth for whiskers. Glue pink pom-pom nose above the whiskers. Cut ears out of the pastel felt, and cut smaller inside ears out of white felt. Glue small white ears on larger pastel ears, and glue them to the back of the head. Place a sucker in the spoon and tie a ribbon around the neck. Glue a small white pom-pom or cotton-ball tail on the sucker stick.

Kids will love transforming a plastic spoon into a happy Easter bunny!
