There are many creative ways to make an Easter Bunny, but younger children may have a hard time with some of them. That is why I decided to share our paper plate Easter Bunny craft. It is simple enough for tiny hands to put together, and makes a great decoration whether it is hung from a doorknob, or placed on a refrigerator with a magnet.
You will need the following items to make your paper plate Easter Bunny:
- A paper plate
- Construction paper
- Googly eyes
- Cotton ball
- Black marker
Follow these steps to create your paper plate Easter Bunny:
Cut two oval shapes out of a white piece of construction paper. Then cut out slightly smaller ovals from a sheet of pink contruction paper. Glue the pink pieces inside the white pieces. These are your Easter bunny’s ears.
Glue the ears so that they come up from behind the top of the paper plate. You could staple them in place if you don’t want to use glue, or find the glue isn’t strong enough.
Add the googly eyes to the top portion of the paper plate just below where the ears stick out.
Glue a cotton ball in the center of the paper plate so that the Easter bunny has a nose. You can dye the cotton ball with a little bit of food coloring first if you want the bunny to have a colored nose.
Use a black magic marker to add whiskers next to the cotton ball, and a mouth just under the cotton ball.
Wait for the glue to dry before displaying in the house.
