Here are two Easter bunny crafts for kids that are easy to do. The egg bunny would look cute sitting at each place setting during a holiday brunch.
Your kids could use the mask to pretend to be a rabbit and hide the eggs for younger siblings. Anyway the projects are a fun reminder of spring.
Here is an interesting fact about Chocolate Easter bunnies. According the history.com 90 million chocolate bunnies are made each year.
Buy plenty of plastic eggs. Your kids will want to make more than one. You could even fill the eggs with candy.
Glue the cotton ball to the narrower part of the egg for the tail. This why rabbits are called cotton tails.
Cut two rounded “L” shapes out of white paper. The shapes measure approximately 2 1/2 by 1 3/4 inches. The bottom of the “L” is glued near the tail with it pointing up. The legs are almost as long as the egg.
Cut two rectangles approximately 3 by 1 inch for ears out of white paper. Round one end into ear shapes. Fold the square end up a little so that you can glue the ears to the bunny. Glue the ears just before the break in the egg. Fold the upper ends down so that they are floppy.
(Bunnies have lots of children and are a symbol of new life).
Cut two small circles from black paper for eyes. Glue onto the bunny. Let your bunny sit overnight to dry. Don’t forget to fill with candy.
Would you like to be the Easter Bunny this year? You will need a mask so no one will recognize you.
Cut two eyes in the paper plate.
Draw one straight and one floppy ear on plain paper.
Use the paper patterns to cut two ears out of white felt. Also cut the ears out of thin cardboard. With tacky glue, glue the felt to the cardboard.
Cut a smaller piece out of pink felt for the inside of the ear. Attach it to the straight ear.
(Now your brother won’t have to give you those bunny ears when taking a picture!).
Cut an oval out of pink felt for the nose. Make a mushroom shape out of black felt for the top of the pink piece. You could make patterns out of paper first so that you don’t make a mistake.
Make your bunny’s nose by gluing the black felt onto the pink. Then attach the ears and nose to the paper plate.
(You won’t have to scrunch up your nose anymore to look like a rabbit.)
Cut six pieces of pipe cleaners each about 3 1/2 inches long. Twist three pieces together. Tape each set of three next to the nose.
Draw a mouth and dots with a gray marker. Now you can wear your Easter bunny mask and hide the eggs.
