Looking for some bunny fun for your little one?
How about making some cute little bunny puppets?
I have the library to thank for this one! They printed bunnies off the computer and cut them out ahead of time. After story time the kids colored bunnies and used double-sided tape to stick them on craft sticks.
Plastic Egg Bunny Craft:
These bunnies were simple to make. You just need plastic eggs, craft foam, and a bit of glue!
I cut out heart shapes to use as feet – make them large enough to help hold up your wobbly egg! I also cut out ears from the craft foam. Then I put a little hot glue on the heart feet and had each child sit there egg on the glue. (I don’t trust them with the hot glue on their own!) Then I dabbed a little hot glue on each side of the top of the egg for them to stick ears to. And you can’t forget a fluffy tail! We hot glued a small bit of cotton ball to the back.
Afterwards they used a permanent marker (I covered my table with newspaper first) to draw on faces and make toes. The eggs still open, so they can be used to hide treats, or they may just hop around the house this weekend!
Don’t forget a healthy bunny snack!
I cut the end of a banana and split it in half to make bunny ears. The face and body are thin slices of apple. Raisins made little bunny eyes and the tip of a strawberry became the nose. (I added more strawberries for the bunny to munch b/c my kids love strawberries!) Pretzel sticks became whiskers, and since the bunny needed a tail, I ripped a marshmallow in half for a tail. Yum!
Now I have to hop – my little bunnies are waiting for our next activity (bunny hopping races).

These are all way too cute. I love working with foam boards.
Those are too cute. I so loved crafting with mine when they are little. We still dye eggs and this year, made cut out Easter cookies. Though the dog ate one sheet full — nabbing it off the counter while they were cooling. Hope the Easter Bunny is god to all.
Your dog sounds like mine! LOL. I remember when she was a pup and stole a whole sheet of biscuts off the counter at my in-law’s house…

I love the fruit bunnies! Hope ya’ll had a good Easter!
We had a pretty good Easter, thanks. Hope you did, too!
I like the food bunny one–great way to get them to have fun eating their fruits and veggies! My kids still love an Easter egg hunt and now have fun hiding them for my husband and me! We go back and forth once they’ve all been found. I must admit, they come up with some great hiding places!
How cute! I love that they hide the eggs for you guys now!

It didn’t take long to do, either, which is always good with a kid snack! 🙂
