Cut apart each of the pieces of the rabbit puppet.

Note: Allowing your preschoolers and kindergarteners to cut out these pieces on their own, is a great way for them to strengthen fine motor skills.

The pieces may not be cut out perfectly, but the more they practice… the better they’ll get.

  1. I’m thinking about adding some felt, eyes and cotton to the puppet so I can use it as a prop when reading a bunny story to the kids. Thanks so much for such a cute project.
