Left it all far, far too late and need an even easier solution?

Check out the video below to find out how to make this lovely bonnet (modelled here by RebeccaMumsnet).
We whipped this one up in under five minutes - using bits and bobs that, with a bit of luck, you'll have knocking around the house. 



You will need: • A strip of card to fit around your child's head (a cereal box would do at a push) • A piece of card large enough to cut out the bunny (coloured is preferable, but let aforementioned child loose with a colouring pen if you're desperate) • A cotton wool ball • Googly eye (not essential) • A stapler • Bunny template
