Easter Bunny Face Made With a Plate

For this Easter crafts project, you will need:

2 plates- either styrofoam or paper plates

Pink construction paper

Pom poms

Wiggle eyes

Pipe cleaners

Crafts glue

Cut one of the plates in half. Then cut it to be shaped like a bunny ear.

Glue the ears to the back of the top of the other paper plate.

Cut medium circles from the construction and glue where the eyes will be. Then glue the wiggle eyes on top of the circles.

Glue a shape like a bowtie from the construction paper. Glue this to the bottom of the plate.

Glue a pompom to the center of the bowtie and to the center of the plate where the nose should be.

Glue three pipe cleaners on each side of the bunny's nose for whiskers.

Your Easter Bunny craft is done! This is a fun and easy Easter craft for kids. The Easter bunny can be made even simpler like the one in the photograph for younger kids.

Easter Crafts for Kids - Easter Bunny Magnet or Pin

This easy to make Easter craft for kids uses just a few items and costs very little. All you need is wiggle eyes, a pink or gray pompom, glue, a small magnet, fabric paint, and some felt- white, pink, gray, or a combination.

Cut three shapes from the felt- one circle and two long oval shapes that look like Easter bunny ears. You have the option of cutting two more bunny ear shapes that are a little bit smaller than the first two, but it isn't necessary.Glue the Easter bunny ears to the back of the circle. If you cut additional Easter bunny ear shapes, glue them onto the larger ear shapes.Next, glue on two wiggle eyes. Glue a pompom on for the nose.Use a fabric paint marker to draw on whiskers and a mouth.Use glue to attach either a magnet or pinback to the back.A simpler version of this is Easter craft is simply to use construction paper instead of felt. Draw on the mouth and whiskers with a marker.
