A boo-boo bunny functions as an ice pack for a child's bruise or injury. The adorable bunny face distracts the child from her pain and can even serve as a comforting friend. White washcloths make the most realistic looking bunnies, but you can use any color that you or your child would like.
Things You'll Need
- Large square washcloth
- Hair tie
- 2 googly eyes
- Small pink pompom
- Large white pompom
Lay the washcloth flat on your work surface.
Fold the washcloth in half to make a triangle. If there is a tag, tuck it in so that it's on the inside of the folded triangle.
Roll the washcloth up into a tight tube, starting at the central corner of the triangle and working toward the longest side.
Gather the ends of the roll together to form the bunny ears.
Fold the ends back toward the loop at the center of the roll so that the tips of the ends just touch the top of the loop.
Twist a hair tie around the bundle, about 1 inch from the fold. Fluff the loose ends up until they look like bunny ears.
Glue the white pompom to the top of the loop to form the bunny’s tail. Glue the googly eyes to the folded end and the pink pompom just below them to make the bunny’s face.
Tuck an ice cube or a reusable cold pack into the bunny’s body to soothe simple childhood injuries.
