The Easter Bunny for the Easter holiday is like Santa Claus for Christmas. He leaves little gifts of chocolates and spring surprises for the kiddies to wake up to. Growing up, I would get an Easter basket from the Easter Bunny, and it was always so exciting to receive small spring-themed gifts. To this day, I light up when I see the candy Easter eggs in the aisles at the grocery store.
That said, it’s clear that the Easter Bunny is mostly for the kids, and so Easter Bunny crafts are generally geared toward kids. So why not include them in the Easter Bunny crafting this year? Here’s a quick and easy Easter Bunny craft to try with the kids this week – especially if they’re home for Spring Break!
- White and/or Assorted Pastel colors construction paper
- Paste-on Eyes
- Pink Puff Balls (small)
- Hole Punch
There are a couple ways to do this craft, for wall decor or place settings for your Easter brunch or dinner.
Steps for Easter Bunny Garland:
- Trace your child’s fist on the piece of construction paper with the pencil.
- Above the fist, trace two fingers (like a peace sign) for bunny ears.
- Cut out as many bunny templates as you need in assorted pastel colors – recommended 20 or more for the garland.
- If you like, add a pink puff nose to the bunny, or leave them plain
- Punch a hole in the top of the head for the string to run through.
- String your bunnies to make a nice long garland to decorate your Easter table with.
Steps for Easter Bunny placecards:
- Trace your child’s two fingers (like a peace sign)
- With the construction paper cut a rectangle or oval miniature table tent (just fold over and cut).
- With the eyes and puff balls glue a bunny face onto the table tent.
- Glue the finger bunny ears to the top of the placecard and voila! Put a bunny placecard at each table setting for your brunch or dinner gathering.
