Easter Bunny Kids Craft

Spread the love

I have yet to meet a kid who does not like to lace things. No one knows why 🙂 But this Easter bunny kids craft will scratch that itch, so to speak. As a matter of fact, it is one of my favorite Easter crafts of all time!

Before we get started, can I just say how awesome you are! You have taken valuable time out of your day to seek out crafts to do with your kiddos. And that is amazing! Because you will NEVER regret the time you spend creating with your kids. And I want to make sure that you find the time to keep coming back. So, here are some ideas for finding more time for the important stuff…

SUPPLIES FROM THE BAG

  • Paper plate (9 inch coated)
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Pencil/marker
  • Elmer’s glue
  • White yarn
  • Tape
  • 2 Medium googly eyes
  • Small pink pompom
  • Paint (color of your choice)
  • Newspaper
  • Clothespin
  • Medium pompom

In case you are new around here, I want to fill you in on our unique approach that we take to kids crafts around here. First of all, you will NEVER see crafts here that are made by adults and for adults. Each craft is developed for kids to actually do and not just watch their parents complete. I mean, what do they learn from that? Nothing!

Second, we have developed a system to make crafting easier, faster, with less mess and less prep. Just fill up your supply bag using our master supply list, and you will be ready to create with your family when the moment presents itself. EVERY craft on this site is made from that list! You will never be in the middle of a project and realize that you are missing that “key ingredient”. Find out what to put in your bag…

Step 1: Cut out the bunny

  • Print out the bunny’s head using the template below.
  • Place the bunny in the middle of the plate and trace around it using a pencil.
  • Now, cut out the bunny. For little ones, this is definitely a job for a grown up.

Step 2: Punch the holes

  • Once the paint has dried, use your hole punch to punch holes all around the bunnies head, approximately 1/2 inch apart, give or take. This does not have to be exact.

Step 3: Paint

  • First, place the paper plate on the newspaper.
  • Then, pinch the medium pompom with your clothespin to make a “paint brush”
  • Squeeze out a little paint onto the newspaper and paint the bottom of the paper plate. Allow the paint to dry.
  • I also went back and added polka dots of another color, but this is completely optional.

Step 4: Weave

  • Cut approximately 1 yard of white yarn and put a piece of tape around the end to make it easier to lace in and out of the holes.
  • Pull the yarn all the way through a hole, leaving about an inch on the back side which you will secure with a piece of tape.
  • Finally, weave the yarn back and forth through the holes, crossing over the center of the form as often as possible.
  • *When you are weaving, do not visibly let the yarn cross over the area in between the ears. Weave the ears somewhat separately but also incorporate them too. You can go in and out of holes ore than once.

Though little ones will need help with several aspects of this craft, weaving is not one of them. As a matter of fact, lacing the yarn through the holes is a great activity for working on fine motor skills and visual motor skills. Plus, you have to be able to coordinate your hands together efficiently. So many developmental skills are being progressed, and your little one will only know that they are having fun and making something with their own hands that they can be proud of! I think it’s okay to “trick” kids into learning…don’t you 🙂

Step 5: Add the details

  • Get out your Elmer’s glue and adhere the googly eyes in place.
  • Last, glue on the pink pompom nose.
  • Allow the glue to dry before moving the project too much.
