DIY bunny softies

One of the highlights of my niece Josie’s ‘snow bunny’ party was the array of bunny rabbit softies that dotted the decor.

What is it about adding a little play shop to a party that absolutely captivates the little guests attention? I’m sure part of it is that there is no one to reign in, no one to set any kind of shopping limitations (and that the other big draw is the play money- haha!). Whatever the [...]
