How to make your Easter bunny craft
So, firstly print out the Easter bunny craft template at the end of this post. This is a three-page template.
You could print the template onto paper or, even better, thin card stock. (That’s if your printer can cope with card stock. Mine couldn’t and ended up having a bit of a hissy fit at me. It eventually gave up and spat the card stock back out at me – charming).
Once you’ve got your template printed with all of the various bunny body parts, it’s time to paint.
Paint the bunny’s head, body, feet and paws. We used a small sponge, but a paintbrush would be fine too.
We used the sponge in an attempt to make our bunny look more fluffy and less brush-strokey.
Don’t forget to decorate the Easter egg too!
Important: With the exception of the Easter egg, don’t paint the shapes on the first page of the template (the page with the heading on it). These shapes are the white parts that will be stuck onto the ears and the feet.
Once you’ve painted the various bunny parts and the paint is dry, it’s time to cut out all the different pieces of the bunny.
If you’re making this craft with young children, they may well need help with some of the cutting out.
The great thing about painting first is that it doesn’t matter if the paint goes over the lines because you cut all the shapes out!

Before you assemble your Easter bunny, glue the white parts onto the ears and feet.
It’s now time to assemble the bunny.
We started by sticking the feet and head onto the body.
Next, glue the Easter egg onto the body. Finally add the two front paws. (The front paws go on last of all as these will cover a small part of the egg on each side).
To finish, trace over the eyes and details on the face with a thin black pen so they show up clearly.
And your Easter bunny craft is now complete!
