Hide an Easter bunny behind grass made from cut-out handprints! This uniquely cute Easter bunny craft will give your child practice tracing his handprint while repurposing a paper plate as the base for his bunny.
What You Need:
- 1/2 of a paper plate
- 2 sheets of green construction paper
- 1 sheet of pink construction paper
- 1 sheet of black construction paper
- Glue stick
What You Do:
- Stack the two sheets of green construction paper and ask your child to fold them in half.
- Help him to trace his hand with pencil on the top of the green construction paper.
- Encourage him to cut along his pencil line through all of the construction paper. He should end up with four cut-out handprints. Set these aside.
- Have him fold the sheet of pink construction paper lengthwise, so it makes a vertical, tall fold.
- Ask him to draw one bunny ear that is the length of the paper.
- Now he can cut along his line while the paper is folded, creating two long bunny ears.
- Next, have him glue the bunny ears on the back side of the rounded part of the plate.
- Ask him to fold the black paper in half, draw a circle and cut along his circle line, creating two black circles. He can glue these circles where the bunny's eyes belong.
- Have him separate the four green handprints and glue them on top of the bunny so the base of the handprint matches up with the base of the paper plate. The handprints will layer over the bunny rabbit, creating the look of a bashful bunny hiding in the grass.
