Easy handicrafts: make your own bunnies for Easter
This easy paper Easter bunny craft is fun for kids of all ages. You can use the Easter bunnies to decorate your home or classroom, as large dolls (attach a wooden spoon to the back with strong tape), or as masks.
What you need:
Craft Paper – A4 or Letter Size 2 Sheets Blue and Yellow. Plus a sheet of white, black and pink
Make the Easter crafts yourself:
- First cut out two circles for the face. Then 2 ears with a length of about 13 cm.
- Cut out eyes and ears from white construction paper and some teeth and don’t forget the whiskers and cheek points.
- Glue the ears between the two round face cutouts using a glue stick. Now glue on the eyes, the ears and the whiskers. Draw the eyes with black pencils. Finally, add a matching pompom for the bunny’s nose. Aren’t they cute? They really are that easy to make and don’t they look just adorable?
Make bunnies out of socks
This easy Easter Bunny sock craft is fun for kids of all ages. You can use the Easter bunnies to decorate your home or classroom, or as dolls.
Materials needed for this craft:
Satin Ribbon – You can also use any type of ribbon you have at home.
Simple rubber bands
Long Grain Rice – About 1 cup per bunny
Needle and black thread or black sharpie marker
- Here we go! First stretch the sock over a sturdy glass and then fill it with 1 cup of rice.
- Take a poly ribbon or elastic and tie it at the top.
- Then take another ribbon and wrap it around near the top to shape the body and head.
- Use another ribbon to shape the bunny’s tail.
- Cut off the excess sock at the top. If you leave a lot of sock on top, the ears will become floppy. If you cut them off closer to the head, they will stand upright.
- Cut off the middle of the top part of the sock. Then cut each ear at an angle to make the curve for the ears.
- For the next part you can either draw two eyes and an “X” for the nose with black thread or you can use a felt pen.
- Tie a small bow around your bunny’s neck and he’s done! Kids love to play with it as the rice inside makes it soft and makes it easy for them to stand the bunny up.
