It is that time of year again, when flowers start to bloom and spring is in the air. It is a great time to make some fun crafts inspired by the Easter bunny himself. Here are a few quick and easy crafts you can do by yourself or with your little ones to get you in that spring mood.
Paper Plate Bunny
What you will need: 2 paper plates, markers, tape or a stapler, glue, cotton balls (optional), googly eyes (optional), pink paper (optional), any other fun things to decorate your bunny.
How to make your bunny: Draw your bunny’s face onto one of the paper plates.Cut the other paper plate in half. These will be your bunny’s ears, so feel free to color the part of the plate that is more flat in pink to give them that bunny ear look. Next, staple or tape your ears to the top of the other plate. At this point you can use things like cotton balls to give your bunny puffy little white cheeks or other fun decorations to make your bunny unique. This is a really simple craft, but a great one to do with younger children. It’s easy enough for them to accomplish with some help and allows them to be creative. These also make great decorations for the fridge!
Easy Bunny Hat
What you will need: White Paper, Pink Paper (optional), markers, scissors, stapler, glue (optional). How to make your hat: Cut out 2 long strips of white paper, about 2 inches in width. Staple those strips together. Measure that longer strip around your head, or the head of the person who will wear the hat and staple it. Draw two long oval shapes onto your white paper. If you want to, you can make them more pointy at one end so they look a bit more like bunny ears. You can either draw smaller ovals inside of them and fill them in with pink, or you can draw smaller ovals onto the pink paper and glue them inside of the white ovals. Cut out your white ovals and attach them to the front of the circle hat. It’s as easy as that. Now you have a fun bunny hat.
What you will need: A paper lunch sack, markers, stapler, glue (optional), pink paper (optional).
How to make your bag: Draw a “U” on the front of your bag, making sure that the bottom of the “U” is about 4-5 inches from the bottom of the sack. Cut out the the “U” shape and discard the middle pieces you just cut out. You now have the ears of your bunny, I stapled my ears at the top so they would stay together and rounded them with my scissors. You can either cut long ovals out of the pink paper and glue them onto each ear (you will need 4, 2 for each side), or you can draw on the ovals with a marker. You can also use your markers to draw the bunny’s face on the lower part of the bag. Quick and easy, this is another fun decoration for Easter or you could use the bags to hold treats on the morning of this spring holiday.
