DIY! The Dumb Bunny Project

Sometimes I just like to do easy and simple crafts that make my kids happy...
This is one of them.
It's cute, not too involved, and easy to do.
That is why I call it the Dumb Bunny Project.

I made these and the kids helped...
and they are very happy that their
"Never-decorates-for the-holidays" mom
has decorated...at least a little bit.
3 parts to this project:
1 round dumb bunny
1 tall dumb bunny
a set of carrots.
