At the bottom of the page, you’ll find the link to our reading from our channel “Sweet Dreams with Christari” of the classic tale of Peter Rabbit.
Here are some free crafts for you and your little one, as well as some fun ideas, that are based around this treasured tale.
1. A Peter Rabbit Garden:

The artist uses a tub as a base for the garden, then adds plants, seeds, and miniatures to recreate Mr. McGregor’s garden. Many of the components can be made with clay. This would also make a great idea for a shower cake.
