Their are many ways to easily make an Easter bunny. This one is great for younger children such as those preschool aged to 2nd grade.
What you will need to make an Easter Bunny:
- Construction Paper – White and Pink
- Pipe Cleaners
- Tacky Glue or a Glue Gun
- Large Googly Eyes
- Medium to Large Pom Pom
- Paper Plate
- Optional: crayons
How to Make this Easter Bunny
If you want a white rabbit skip this step. Otherwise take out the markers or crayons and let the child decorate the plate however they want the bunny to look.
The Ears are a easy to draw and a good way for young children to practice their scissors skills. If you have pink construction paper the child can practice 4 times as the pink is just a smaller ear. If like me, you don’t have a light shade of pink, crayons or markers make a good substitution. We glued the ears on the back of the face as the first step.
We took the pipe cleaner, folded it in half and gave it a little twist and glued it on. This is where you need a glue gun or tacky glue, school glue just won’t cut it. We used tacky glue so my son could do it all.
Then simply glue on your googly eyes and pom pom. You can use school glue here and let the child do it all.
For the mouth we used a marker, but you could cut something out and glue it on as well.
If your homeschooling this can be and work with:
- Scissors practice
- Arts and Crafts
- Decision Making
- Where parts of a bunny are
- an Easter discussion
- a Lesson on rabbits
- goes great with Easter and bunny books
