Bunny Finger Puppets

So, I made these for the kids for Easter and after I looked at the link that inspired me to make these, I realized I REALLY need to add tails, they look so much cuter with tails. So, these are semi-finished in this picture.

Pizza Ranch
*BD's Mongolian
*Disney Rewards (used the points, but not free BR since I don't have a player)
* Orange Julius
Kwik Trip

Maybe (but mostly likely not)
Harry & David
Cold Stone Creamery
Noodles & Co.

As you can see, there are a lot out there and I am sure there will be more in my email over the next week. And I will only use a small percentage of them (mainly because a lot of these are not local for me and I would need to combine with a trip to the Cities or Rochester). So, if you are interested in getting some of these, just google the location and look for a birthday club or email sign up and you will be set to go. Make sure you do this at least a month in advance or you might not get into their system fast enough.

There is just not enough time & money in my life to be able to take advantage of all of these, only a very small portion.
