You can use any shape. It doesn't have to be a bunny. Just trace a shape or cookie cutter. This would be cute for any holiday, just use an appropriate cookie cutter to trace and cut out the shape, then whatever yarn works best for that holiday!
A Rabbit Can - Cute! Glue felt-covered cardboard head onto cut-away can. Paint on hands and carrot directly onto can, or paint on paper/fabric that is attached to can. Use white pom-poms to toss for a game.
