Materials Needed:

  • white paper (A4 cut into 4 equal pieces)
  • glue
  • scissors

What to do:

  • Collect all your materials.

  • Use one piece of paper, fold the paper like an accordion.

  • Once you have completed the paper folding, fold it in half. 

  • To make one bunny, you should do the same for each piece of the A4 paper which makes it 4 pieces altogether. 

  • Put the 4 folded pieces together in a circle and glue all the edges so they join.

  • Once glued, it should create a full circle.

  • Draw a bunny face and bunny ears. Add details and cut it out.

  • Glue the face and bunny ears to the centre of the paper folding circle.
