Step 1: You will need
- 1 white 260Q balloon
- 2 160Q balloons in green and orange
- a professional pump
- some scissors
- permanent marker pens
Step 2: Blow up
Place the lip of a white 260Q balloon over the nib of your pump. Inflate the balloon leaving about a 2 inch tail.
Step 3: Tie off
Loop the lip around your fingers, then tuck it through the loop. Gently pull and release to form the knot.
Step 4: Rabbit's head
Twist a 2 inch bubble for the rabbit's head.
Step 5: Long ears
Make two 5 inch bubbles twisting in the same direction. Twist them together to lock them off. These will be the rabbit's long ears.
Step 6: The Neck
Twist a small bubble for the neck
Step 7: Front legs
Add two 2 inch bubbles and lock them off for short front legs. Position the rest of the balloon so that it is horizontal.
Step 8: The Body
Make a bubble for the body the same size as the rabbit's head. Then squeeze all the air down to the end of the balloon so it is fully inflated.
Step 9: Back legs and tail
Make two long bubbles for back legs leaving a small bubble at the end of the balloon for the cotton tail. Lock the legs off leaving the bubble sticking up at the bottom. Now push the front legs in between the back legs to make your rabbit sit up.
Step 10: Draw a face
Use scissors to carefully trim the knot on the nose. Then take a permanent marker pen and draw on eyes and a mouth with buck teeth.
Step 11: Make the carrot
Take a160Q orange balloon and inflate it a tiny bit. Tie it off and then tie a knot in the other end of the balloon where the tail begins. Snip off the rest of the tail with your scissors.
Step 12: Add leaves
Next take a green 160Q balloon. Cut off the knot end. Loop The green balloon round your fingers and catch the knot of the orange balloon in the loop. Then tie a knot in the green balloon for the carrot's leaves.
Step 13: Add carrot
Pop the carrot into the legs of the rabbit.
