Cut the cardboard tubes as follows. You will end up with 5 baby bodies, 2 adult bodies and 14 ears.

Run a line of hot glue inside the ear and squeeze it closed to flatten it.

Hot glue the ears to the top inside of the cardboard tube body.

If you like, cut a simple apron from white felt for the mom. Cut out a small carrot from orange and green felt and glue to the apron. Glue apron in place. Glue 2 buttons to the front of the dad.
Expert Tips & FAQs
Some people are uncomfortable using bathroom tissue rolls, especially those in a day care setting. Paper towel cardboard tubes are the same diameter, just longer, and work equally well.
To simplify some of these steps, skip the apron on mama bunny and the buttons on daddy, and you can also use pink felt triangles (or construction paper) for the noses. Wiggle eyes will work too instead of a marker. I do use a hot glue gun in this project, so please supervise children closely or use a quick-drying glue such as Beacon's instant grab glue.
