Spring is here and to see all the little bunnies hopping around is one of my favorite things. Here is a nice balloon rabbit to add to your springtime balloon repertoire.

What you need:

2 –260 balloons; one for the body (color is your choice) and a pink one for the nose.

The body:

Step 1. Inflate the 260 leaving about a 3″ tail soften balloon and tie.
