Great for Easter or Spring, this simple craft for kids just lit up our morning! We only needed one paper plate for each bunny! Check out how cute and fun this Bunny Craft can be for your kids!
This week, I really enjoyed reading, cuddling, and then inviting H, M, and J to help mix and flip pancakes! H wanted a pancake made as Wall-E. They had a blast and I loved involving them so we could connect while I cooked. Another one of our favorite activity was this paper plate bunny craft!
Materials for each Easy Bunny Paper Plate Craft for Kids:
1 paper plate
pom pom ball for nose
3 cotton balls (optional since H did not want the extra fur)
stapler (tip add tape behind the staple so kids don’t get poked)
Instructions for Easy Paper Plate Bunny Craft for Kids:
Before we started this bunny craft, we read “Ruby’s Rainy Day” together. It was a great lead into a conversation about spring weather and bunnies.
First, we just cut the circle around the plate, leaving the middle circle as the face.
The outer circle is ready to be cut into ears.
J’s favorite part was cutting the ears, with mommy near of course:) He also loved the stapler.
Easily and quickly do this, by overlapping the ears and cutting off the top angles of the bunny ears.
Next, Staple the bunny ears onto the small circle.
Then, we added on the fun bunny details!
We added pink tissue paper into the ears.
Then, we added a pink pom pom ball for the nose.
Next, we added eyes, whiskers, and a smile with a purple marker.
Then, we added the cotton balls around the circle for the bunny fur on the face.
It was so fun to see the bunnies come to life as they each told stories about the bunnies.
H’s favorite part was adding the facial features on her bunny.
M’s Bunny story: “This is Tracy, the bunny mommy, going home to eat some carrot cake!”
Add More Learning Fun:
Science: research more about bunnies and their habitats.
Math: count cotton balls or measure how far you can blow them!
Reading/Writing: name your bunny write a story about your bunny and read it to each other (mommy can write what kids say)
Creativity: Do a play with your bunny face on!
Faith: Talk about Easter and how God loves us so much that Easter shows how we can be made new through His love and grace, all because He gave His son, who rose again for us on Easter. It’s so wonderful how much we are loved. Find more Faith fun at this Kids Sunday Fun link.
