Easter Bunny and Egg Craft

This time of year I am obsessed with crafting with the kids! I love how even on those cool rainy spring days you can still bring in a little sunshine with an art project. This Easter Bunny craft is the perfect way to get in the Easter spirit with the kids. I love how easy it is to do with the template so that even younger kids can participate with you!

Supplies

Directions

Step 1

Select your choice of colored paper that you want to use for the bunny and the egg. Trace the bunny patterns (outer ear patterns, head, body and upper legs) on the paper, trace the lower legs on a different shade of the same colored paper and trace the inner ear patterns and the 2 small circles (blush) on pink colored craft paper. 

Step 2

Stick the inner ear patterns on the outer ear cutouts and the small pink round cutouts on both cheeks. Stick the lower legs (paws) along the bottom side of the body pattern. 

Step 3

Stick the ear patterns on the top side of the head cutout. 

Step 4

Stick the upper leg cutouts on both sides of the body cutout. Apply glue along the edge only and keep the rest of the cutouts free from glue.

Step 5 

Stick the head cutout on the top side of the body cutout. 

Step 6

Use a sharpie to draw the eyes, nose and mouth of the papercraft bunny. 

Step 7

Trace the egg pattern and decorate the egg with colored craft papers.

Step 8

Grab the paper egg and slide it under the upper legs of the papercraft bunny. 

Tips and Tricks

  • This project is totally customizable. Let your kids create their bunnies any color they want. 
  • You can omit the egg if you are creating these after Easter, so that you can enjoy them longer throughout the season. 
  • For younger kids you might want to precut all the pieces. This will help them focus on the glueing and assembling. 

More Easter Ideas

Easter is a great time to gather the kids together and have fun. There is so much that you can do with them that is both easy and creative!

This time of year is a great time to get the kids in the kitchen cooking and baking. Let them help you create some delicious Easter M & M cookies or another simple Easter treat. 

If you want to create a fun sensory activity that they can enjoy throughout the whole season. Create play doh together and dye it Easter or Spring colors. Manipulate the dough to create different shaped Easter objects or even to create letters or numbers out of the dough. 

Easter is still a great time to snuggle up with a good book! If you have kids that love flap books my kids always love Peek a Flap Hop. Another favorite in our house is Pete the Cat: Big Easter Adventure. 

 If you want a story that helps teach the real meaning of Easter the Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story does a really nice job introducing your kids to the real meaning why we celebrate the season. 

And of course, don’t forget to dye Easter eggs. This is a really simple way to do it and the colors look bright and fun perfect for hiding on Easter morning. 

We can’t wait to see your creations! Be sure to tag me in stories @micheletripple and use #frostingandglue so that we know what you are making and what you want more of!
