Easter is just around the corner and you and your kids are getting ready for it. Stores are selling out candy and decorations and some people are even buying things to make their own unique crafts with. If you are interested in adding to the Easter ambiance in your own house, here are a few cheap, simple-to-make ideas on how to make neat Easter bunny decorations that you can eat too!
1. Easter Bunny Rolls
These are easy to make. All you will need is a pair of scissors, a tooth-pick and a can of homemade rolls. Open up the can and separate each roll on a cooking pan. Now, squeeze the rolls gently to give them more of an oval instead of round shape. At the front of each roll, with the tips of the scissors, cut some ears on each side, making sure you don’t cut all the way through. Next, cut a tooth pick in half and use the dull end to draw a line in the middle of the ear, making a straight indentation that will make the ears look more realistic. Now use the tooth pick to poke in some eyes. Cook the rolls at normal at their normal temperature, watching them toward the end, and they will come out with lightly browned ears and look really cool! You can make Easter bunnies out of cinnamon rolls, too. Just add the middle of a roll to a whole one for the head and use small, rolled up pieces of dough for the ears and tail.
2. Easter Bunny Eggs
All you will need for these are boiled eggs, a black magic marker, some construction and glue, paper, and a pair of scissors. First, draw the face of your bunny on the egg. Next, cut out some ears and glue them on. Cut some short pieces of fishing line and glue it on for whiskers. You can get really creative with this and die your eggs different colors, then put different colored ears on. You could die one of your eggs pink, for instance, and glue on some pink ears. You can even use glitter to make them sparkle! Place your Easter bunny eggs in Easter baskets or even in potted plants around the house to add to the Easter decor.
3. Easter Bunny Pancakes
These are a fun way to celebrate your Easter morning. First, cook two pancakes and place one of them on the bottom of a plate. Cut the other one in half and put each half on top, making the bunny’s head with two ears. Next, you can use two raisins or chocolate chips for the eyes. Cut a strawberry in half for the nose, and use pancake syrup for some whiskers and a mouth. Lay two small marshmallows on their sides next to each other for their teeth. If you are missing some of the ingredients you can look in your refrigerator or cabinets and find some healthy foods to use instead, such as pieces of cereal or blueberries for the eyes or cut up small pieces of a banana for the teeth.
