Easter bunny craft activity, perfect for preschoolers.
So Easter is not far away! Can anyone else hear the distant footsteps of the Easter bunny?
Well, here at Math, Kids and Chaos, we are well and truly getting into the Easter spirit with an Easter bunny craft.
Today we have been making Easter bunnies to decorate our house with to give it a bit of Easter flair.
This craft is perfect for preschoolers so if you have a bit of spare time and are looking for something creative to do with your young children, read on.
Don’t forget to download the Easter bunny template which is included at the end of the post!
What you will need
- Easter bunny template (available for download at end of this post)
- construction paper or thin card stock
How to make your Easter bunny craft
So, firstly print out the Easter bunny craft template at the end of this post.
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!
To paint the bunny’s head, body, feet and paws, we used a small sponge.
We used the sponge in an attempt to make our bunny look more fluffy and less brush-strokey (I know that’s not a real word, but you know what I mean).
Don’t forget to decorate the Easter egg too!
A note here: 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 will definitely need help with the cutting part.
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!
If, when the paint is dry, you find the paper has gone a bit wrinkly (ours did!), simply stick the bunny parts onto thin card stock and then cut out again.
Assembling your Easter bunny
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 his two arms. The arms go on last of all as these will cover a small part of the egg on each side.
To finish, you may want to just go 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!
