If you’re like me, crafting with your kids is something you want to do more of…but never quite seem to find the time. That’s why I decided to find a new approach to making things with the kids. Instead of each craft having its own separate supply list that you then need to go out and fill, we stick to a master list of basic craft supplies that fit into one bag to make all of the amazing projects that you see on this site and in our shop. We stick to this list to make crafting with your kids actually do-able…even when life is hectic.

How to make a Cute Bunny Craft
Step 1: Form the Bunny Body
- Cut a slit in the paper plate going from the outside to the center.
- Overlap the plate at the cut that you just made so that the plate forms a slight cone shape.
- Use your stapler to secure the plate in this shape by stapling on the cut.
Step 2: Use the Free Bunny Craft Template
- Print the bunny craft template.
- Use it to cut out the head for your rabbit from white construction paper. (Or simply cut it out if you printed it onto white cardstock.)
*If you don’t have access to a printer, draw an oval, approximately 5×6 inches in size and draw on the bunny ears. Then cut out the shape.
Step 3: Decorate Your Bunny
- Use markers or crayons to decorate the face of your bunny. The eyes should be closed since your bunny is sleeping.
- During this step, you can also add any other details you would like to the body of your bunny (paper plate).
Step 4: Put Together Your Cute Bunny Craft
- Use your glue stick to attach the face of your bunny over the slit in the plate. Place it at a slight angle so that the bunny appears to be sleeping.
- Use Elmer’s glue or a glue dot to attach the large white pompom to the plate as the tail of your bunny. For proper placement, think of the bunny all curled up in a ball sleeping peacefully and visualize where the tail would be.
Now that you know how to make this sweet bunny craft, you’re going to want to keep on crafting. To make this an Easter craft, make some little squish painted eggs for around your bunny. And maybe give him some friends to nap with, like this sleeping skunk or this sleeping cat craft.
