Craft: Sock Bunny


“Now out of the ground the LORD God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.” Genesis 2:19

An important part of our family’s rest is going to church, where we meet with others to hear God’s word from the Bible.

One Sunday, our kids heard about how Adam named all the animals God had created. They made this adorable craft sock bunny and had the important task of naming it, just like Adam.

I thought the craft sock bunny was far too cute and incredibly simple to make. I just had to share.

Craft Materials:

  • 1 sock
  • rice
  • 2 rubber bands
  • ribbon
  • markers


Fill up the sock with some rice and tie it off with a rubber band. This is the sock bunny’s body.

Fill up more of the sock with some rice to form its head, ensuring that the ankle part of the sock is where the bunny’s nose is.

Tie off the sock with the remaining rubber band.

Tie a piece of ribbon as a bow at the top of the bunny’s head.

Cut the top part of the sock down the middle to form ears.

Trim off the ears to the desired length.

Draw eyes, nose, mouth, etc with markers.

Name your sock bunny. (You can also stick some crepe paper or a pom pom on your bunny for a tail.)


N (3 y.o.) named his rabbit Bunny.
