Last week I took the girls to a fun morning of crafting and delicious snacks at The Chirldren’s Musuem of the Art in New York City. The event was hosted by Halos and Momtrends. Halos are one of my family’s favorite foods and Momtrends always puts on a fabulous event, so I knew it would be a fun time. My girls love doing arts and crafts and I was excited to see what types of crafts we would create with the Halos. For more details on the event and some of the recipes, check out Momtrends’ post here.
I wanted to share two of our favorite crafts of the day: a Halos Bunny and a Halos Chick. These are perfect for spring! Also, if you need a cute snack idea, you could make one or two of the animals and pop them into a basket of Halos to make it look festive.
Whenever it was our “snack day” in preschool, I struggled to think of something that went with the letter or season they were studying, was healthy and ok for kids with allergies. Halos are perfect and if you “dress up” a few on the top it makes them all look festive!
White pipe cleaner
Cut the bunny ears from white and pink paper. Fold them back at the base and secure to the top of the Halo with glue dots.
Cut a pipe cleaner into three pieces and twist to form the whiskers. Add a pink paper triangle for the nose.
Use glue dots to add the googly eyes and cute little pom-pom bunny tail.

Yellow pipe cleaner
Cut the chick’s wings from yellow paper. You can create
a feathered effect by cutting little slits into the paper’s edge. Fold them back at the base and secure to the sides of the Halo with glue dots.
Use a yellow pipe cleaner to form the legs and feet.
Fold yellow paper and cut a little triangle for the beak. Use glue dots to add the beak and googly eyes.
