Materials:

  • Easter Buddy template (available to download here)
  • Yellow card stock
  • Orange card stock
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue
  • While felt
  • Double-sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Instructions: 

  1. Trace the Easter Buddy template on the yellow card stock and cut out the shape.
  2. Cut two small triangles in half vertically, and glue onto the yellow card stock to form an elevated diamond shape — a beak for the buddy’s face.
  3. Cut out a small triangle from the yellow card stock, fold it in half, and glue it onto the head to make a tuft of feathers.
  4. Glue on the googly eyes and wait about 2 minutes for the glue to dry. Then, cut a circle out of the white felt and glue on to the buddy’s belly.
  5. Fold the legs up, place the mandarin on top of the legs, and tape the wings around the Halos mandarin.
  6. Cut two triangles out of yellow card stock, fold them in half, and glue them onto the back of the buddy to make a cute little tail.

Bunny Pouch

Materials:

  • Wonderful Halos mandarins
  • Pompoms (small and large)
  • White felt
  • Pink felt
  • Rubber bands
  • Pink ribbon (or any color)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes

Instructions:

  1. Cut off a corner of the white felt about a third of the way in. Fold the felt over about 1 inch from the side that was cut and keep folding over 1 inch at a time until the end.
  2. Place the Halos mandarin in the middle of the felt and wrap the ends around it, securing with a rubber band at the top to make the ears.
  3. Tie the ribbon in a bow around the ears, hiding the rubber band, and cut out two long oval pieces of pink felt to tuck inside the ears.
  4. Make the bunny’s face by gluing on googly eyes, a small pompom for the nose, a large pompom for the tail, and voilà!
