Looking for some bunny fun for your little one?
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!
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).
