8 Funny Easter Bunny Crafts

Easter bunnies are hopping good fun. Help your child get in on the springtime adventure with a craft made from things you probably have lying around the house.

What You Need:

  • Plastic egg
  • Heavy white glue
  • Yarn
  • Matching felt
  • Plastic soda bottle cap or ring cut from a cardboard tube
  • Red or pink felt or a very small pink pom pom
  • Small piece of cardboard
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors

What You Do:

  1. Have your child add glue to the narrow end of the egg and coil the yarn around the egg. After wrapping the yarn around a few times, hold it in place until the glue sets. 
  2. Working with about a ½ inch of the egg at a time, add glue and help your child coil the yarn around the egg, covering it as completely as possible. Take a break at about the halfway point to allow the glue to dry. When you take a break, you can rest the egg on a plastic soda bottle cap or a ring cut from a toilet paper tube. 
  3. Have your child continue to add glue and yarn until the egg is completely covered. If the base is a little sloppy, don’t worry. You are gluing feet over this section so it won’t show.
  4. Ask her to cut a round piece of felt, between the size of a nickle and a quarter, and glue it over the yarn at the base of the egg. Let the glue on the bunny’s body dry.
  5. Cut a pair of feet out of the cardboard. Have your child use these as a pattern to cut a matching pair of feet out of felt. Glue the felt feet to the cardboard feet. 
  6. Glue the feet to the body and let dry. It is easiest for the feet to set with the bunny standing, although you will have to prop it up.
  7. While the glue dries, have your child cut out two bunny ears from the felt.
  8. Add a thin coating of glue to the base of each ear. When the glue has set, pinch the base of each ear together slightly to cup it into a realistic ear shape.
  9. Apply a generous drop of glue to the place where you plan to put the ears. Add the ears and hold them in place to set. 
  10. Glue googly eyes in place. 
  11. Take the pom pom or the tiny triangle cut from pink or red felt and glue it to your bunny's face to make a nose.

Add your child’s creation to the family centerpiece this Easter so that she can share her work with others.  She can also make a whole warren of bunnies in various colors. Experiment with fuzzy yarn, crinkly yarn, chunky yarn and more.
