Make your own fluffy Easter Bunny from items around the house! This is a great craft for younger children because the cotton balls are something different to use in a craft and they add a great texture!

What you'll need:

  • Paper plate
  • Cotton balls
  • White poster board or heavy construction paper
  • Pink construction paper or pink crayon/marker
  • Black and pink pipe cleaners
  • Pink pompom
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • white glue
How to make your Paper Plate Easter Bunny Craft:
  • Cut out two ears from the white poster board that are each about 5" tall and 2" wide.
  • Cut out two smaller ears from the pink construction paper.
  • Glue the smaller ears inside the larger ears, or color the inside of the larger ears pink.
  • With the paper plate right side up, glue the ears to the top of the plate so the pink part is facing the table.
  • Turn the paper plate over.
  • Cover the plate with glue (tip: using your finger or a paint brush works well to smooth the glue out).
  • Use the cotton balls to cover the plate.
  • Glue the googly eyes, pompom (nose) and pipe cleaners on to construct the face of the Easter Bunny.
  • Bend the pink pipe cleaner into the shape of the bunny's mouth and glue under nose.
  • *Optional: cut a bowtie out of construction paper and glue on the bottom of the face
