When you think of animals associated with Thanksgiving, you likely picture turkeys. But what about cute little bunnies? You don't need to wait for Easter to include bunnies in your table centerpieces when you use this easy craft for kids. Using butternut squash, these delightful bunnies will be a whimsical and unexpected addition to your Thanksgiving dinner. You and your child will love painting butternut squash in an assortment of colors for each bunny. As it will take some time for the squash to dry after painting, you'll need to plan ahead when making this craft. This Thanksgiving craft will look adorable when placed on tree trunk slices or other natural elements on your table or fireplace mantel.
