Welcome to the creative corner of Garden Gate Rabbit Park!
We spend a lot of time outside whether we need to work in the garden, plant flowers, do chores or groom and visit with rabbits! When the weather is cold or rainy we finish our chores outside and then we like to draw, paint, sew or get busy on a craft project! Pictures can give us great ideas that are fun to make.
MAKE A MAP!
There are all kinds of maps. Whether you live on a country road or on a city block a road map is fun to make! Your house can be the first building you draw or glue on your map! Make the roads that lead to your house and then add some of your favorite places.
If you were able to fly over your house what would you see? What do birds see when they fly overhead? What is in your yard?
Here at our rabbit park there are a lot of trees to see and the Durbin Creek flows along one side of our 16 acres. Here is a simple map of our road along the creek. We also marked some interesting things we have seen while hiking along our creek. The creek flooded after 4 days of rain! We went down to the creek banks after the water level went down and on the sandy banks we saw a lot of animal tracks. We saw several raccoon tracks and then some tracts of a crane that came up out of the creek. The size of the tracks tell us that adult animals come down to the creek and their young come too!
Make Rabbit Crafts!
We will post picture ideas that have rabbits or rabbit themes.
You may enjoy drawing rabbits too! I hope you will share some of your ideas and pictures of your work! Send your picture ( jpeg. file) by attaching the file with your name and the state you live in. Email to Loretta@gardengatecards.us
Make a note card with rabbit ears!
Share some treats with your friends!
Make paper carrots from card stock that will hold treats inside.
With bright card stock colors available these smiling faces can be drawn on your master design.
Mark the spots that will be punched out for the yarn or shoe laces to be threaded through.
Scan or make copies on your printer.
Cut out the face with scallop craft scissors and punch out the holes.
Children can use a show lace to thread through the holes.
Various large rug or blunt needles can be used for sewing also.
Make smiles and cheer someone up today!
A CAMPING TRIP!
The Scoutmaster and his Tenderfoot son went on a camping trip. As they lay down for the night, the Tenderfoot said, “Dad, look up into the sky and tell me what you see”.
His Scoutmaster father responded, “I see millions and millions of stars”.
Tenderfoot Son: “And what does that tell you?”
Scoutmaster Dad: “Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Theologically, it tells me that God is great and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it tells me that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you, son?”
Tenderfoot Son: “It tells me you forgot to pack the tent again”
