3. Glue together two different-sized circles of the same color to form a snowman shape. This is the bunny's body.
4. Glue one small circle on top of the bunny's stomach. Glue the two remaining circles on top of each other and cut them in half.
5. Glue two half circles to the bunny's head for ears.
6. Cut out a small circle for the tail. Glue on tail, a triangle nose, googly eyes and pipe cleaner whiskers. Use marker to draw a mouth.
