After a winter full of snow and frigid cold temperatures, it's finally beginning to feel like Spring. The sun is beginning to shine and the animals are coming out of hibernation. My toddler loves to watch the family of rabbits that are living in our backyard.
While watching the rabbits today, we created this hoppin' Bunny Mason Jar Craft. This easy-to-make bunny craft is not only a fun way to celebrate Spring but it also is an adorable decoration for Easter too.
