Easter Bunny

My cousin made this Easter Bunny with her son and I thought it was so cute, I just had to post it on my blog.
Here is the info:
We made this Easter bunny with a 2-liter bottle for the body, a 4-inch styrofoam ball for the head, and probably 300 cotton balls.

Some tips: I used an apple corer to make a hole in the bottom of the styrofoam ball to slide on the top of the bottle, and I glued white paper onto cardboard and cut out ear shapes and ovals for the arms and feet. I think the 4-inch styrofoam ball is the way to go, the other sizes were too big or too small and looked weird.

Andrew's Photo Studio

This is Andrew's photo studio. He has been very interested in cameras lately and in pictures. He has a couple of cameras that used to be mine that he takes everywhere we go (just like I do with mine). We decided to set up a photo studio so he could practice. We painted some scenery yesterday and set it up complete with props, a stool for the subjects to sit on and pose and a place for him to post the pictures he took. The pictures are a little out of order. The third one is the one I took showing the "studio". The others are the ones Andrew took with my camera, under my supervision.
