The Chinchilla, the Fennec Fox, the Elf Owl, and the Ferret are the original four Easter Bunny Helpers.
Making your own Chinchilla Bunny Helper is a special experience. For example, check out Kiwi Lightning. Although there are several steps to create a Chinchilla helper, they are kept surprisingly easy and can be done by children, with some assistance by adults. The good news is, there is no stitching involved. Therefore no needles are needed.
Please follow along with the step-by-step instructions and videos and before you know it, you’ll have own Chinchilla helper!
Before getting started, you’ll need to gather up your materials. In many cases, you’ll have many of these materials laying around your house. If not, in most cases they can be purchased at your local Dollar Store or you can simply substitute an item with an alternative. For example, instead of glitter, use rice.
To begin, gather up these items:
– One (1) gray sock.
– Small piece of white felt.
– Small piece of pink felt.
– Fabric marker.
– Hot glue gun.
– Fiber fill (Stuffing).
– Mini hair rubber bands (also called hair elastics).
You’ll need the gray sock, some stuffing, and a rubber band.
In this step, you’ll need scissors, a fabric marker, pink felt, and white felt.
Please make sure you ask an adult for assistance or for supervision. Before you get started, make sure to flip the sock over, so that the side of the sock without the crease is facing you. The side of the sock without the crease is the side you will use for the Chinchilla’s face.
In this step, you’ll need your glue gun. Make sure to ask an adult for assistance or supervision.
In this step, you’ll need stuffing and the glue gun. Make sure to ask an adult for assistance or supervision.
In this step, you will personalize your Chinchilla helper. You need a fabric marker. Also, you’ll need your glue gun, so make sure to ask an adult for supervision or assistance.
Now you’re ready to bring your Chinchilla helper to life. You’ll need glitter for this step, but if you don’t have glitter, you can use rice, or small pieces of paper, or even bird seed. Anything that you can sprinkle will work. What’s most important, is that you recite the Easter Bunny Helper Poem at the same time that you sprinkle the glitter.
– Sprinkle glitter on the Chinchilla helper and read aloud the following poem,
“A little sprinkle here and there,
Now bring Easter joy everywhere”
The Easter Bunny can always use help. With some basic supplies and a sock or two, you can make your own helper. Follow the special instructions and make sure you ask an adult for assistance.
