How to Make a Wash Rag Bunny
It is easy to make this wash rag bunny, which is sometimes called a boo-boo bunny as an ice cube can be held in the crevice in the body. The ice, rather the bunny, can then easily be held by a child with a 'boo-boo'. These also make adorable decorations and great gifts. There is also a cute poem that goes along with this bunny.

Adding the Face the the Wash Rag Bunny
Now you can glue the eyes in place along with a small pom-pom to be the bunny's nose. A small bow made from the ribbon can be glued just in front of the ears to hide the rubber band. If you prefer, you can wrap the ribbon around the rubber band.Continue to 10 of 10 below.

Boo-Boo Bunny Poem
Finally, glue a 1-inch pom-pom onto the back of the bunny's body to be its tail.
Once all the glue is dry, the bunny is ready to use and/or display. Not only are these useful and decorative, they make fun baby shower gifts and decorations.
If you plan on using this wash rag rabbit as a boo-boo bunny try using it with a plastic, re-freezable ice cube in its 'belly' instead of a real ice cube. This will be a little less 'drippy'!
If you are making this boo-boo bunny as a gift,... include this poem submitted by Jewel:
If a boo boo has you feeling crummy,
Stick an ice cube in my tummy.
Hold it to your boo boo tight,
Soon everything will be all right!
