A while back I saw a picture of some cheese stick wrappers dressed like snowmen. It was so cute, I had to come up with another fun way to dress up the wrapper. With Easter coming up, I decided to make them look like bunny rabbits! My 3-year-old thought they were so neat that he wanted to eat a string cheese stick just because the other day for a snack! Yay for getting some extra calcium in him! Strong bones, here we come! These are adorable favors or treats to set out if you are hosting an Easter party and are fun year-round for inside your child’s lunch bag for school!
What You Need
- String cheese
- Construction paper (white and pink)
- Glue stick
- Permanent marker
What to Do
1. The first two steps are optional, but they make the wrappers look extra cute. Tape the back of the string cheese wrapper with masking tape. Cut off any extra that hangs over the edge.
2. Over the masking tape, tape on solid or patterned washi tape. I used green like Easter grass! Again, trim off any excess.
3. Cut out your ears, paws, and feet from construction paper. I cut the white and pink paper at the same time for the ears then trimmed the pink so it fit perfectly inside the white. I then folded the paper in half to cut a heart out for the paws and to cut out the feet so both sides matched.
4. Using a glue stick, glue the pink into the center of the ears then, if you choose, glue the corner of one of the ears down. Glue the ears to the top of the cheese stick, the paws on the string cheese wrapper near the top, and the feet at the bottom where the string cheese ends. Press firmly and let the glue dry completely. If you want the glue to stick even better you can use crafting glue.
5. Using a permanent marker, draw on the eyes, nose, and mouth. I also wanted to add a little definition to the paws and feet so I lightly drew some fingers and toes.
Tip: Sending these to school for your children? Having a group of kids over for an Easter celebration? Use a permanent marker to write their names on the washi tape backing to make them personal!
