Marshmallow Easter Bunny - Edible Craft Ideas

Yum is all I can say when I look at these two very cute, very edible bunnies. You can see how easy they would be to make and how easy they would be to eat too. Get some marshmallows and sparkling sugar when you go to the grocery store and surprise your kids with this very delicious, sweet bunny craft after school one day.

They are going to love it!

To make these marshmallow bunnies you will need:

  • Marshmallows
  • Sparkling sugar
  • Sprinkles or Jimmies in different shapes (round ones for the eyes and nose, a flower shape for the hair...)
  • Icing gel

Another idea I got from Cute Food For Kids is pictured below. You can use the same ingredients you used for the Edible Easter Bunnies to make the bunnies pictured below, but you will need one more thing, lollipop sticks. And maybe some red food coloring and a toothpick to make those cute freckles on the cheeks!

Button Egg Craft Project In A Frame

Easter Egg Button Craft For Kids

Spring and Easter are so easy to decorate for when you find beautiful and simple craft projects like this Easter Egg Button Craft. Spring opens the door to all those wonderful shades of bright colors and that's what this egg button project should reflect. Eggs are a symbol of the Easter holiday so they are the perfect shape for your button craft, a bunny rabbit would work too. To make this button craft you will need:

  • Frame – paint or distress an inexpensive frame from your local dollar store
  • Fabric, Burlap, or Cross Stitch Fabric – burlap has a nice texture to it
  • Buttons - these are pink but you can use any color or color combination you like
  • Embroidery Floss - pink was used here to match the buttons
  • Glue - craft glue
  • Masking Tape
  • Needle

(Note: Some people have made this project using only the cardboard as a backing and glue to adhere the buttons. The choice, of course, is yours.)

Take out the piece of cardboard backing from your photo frame and wrap your fabric around it. Cut piece of fabric that is big enough to stretch around the cardboard. You will be using this later when you complete your project and frame it.

Lay the fabric down and place your buttons in the shape you want your button craft to be...in this case, it would be an egg shape. Then arrange and rearrange the buttons until you are happy with how your egg looks. Then, one by one, glue your buttons where you want them to be. Let the glue dry completely before you begin the final crafting step of sewing your buttons in place.

Once you have sewn your buttons in, it's time to put the button egg into your frame. That's how easy this pretty craft project is. You and your kids are going to have fun making these!

Scuba Easter Eggs are made with hard-boiled & partially dyed eggs, cut straws, a water bottle cap, pipe cleaners, black construction paper flippers, and googly eyes. These are just about the cutest darn eggs ever, don't you agree?
