Happy Easter!

















Paper Bunny Basket


Materials:
printer,

something to colour with,

scissors,

glue, and

paper



There are lots of things you can do with this craft:

OPTIONS
attach a popsicle stick to make it a puppet,

attach a paper handle to make a basket (this is my favorite option... put in a bit of shredded paper or tissue paper and fill with small chocolates),

attach a string to make a cone hat (when the kids tilt their heads forward they'll look like the Easter Bunny) or

just hang on the fridge.



INSTRUCTIONS
Print out the template of choice.

Colour the pieces as appropriate.

Cut the pieces out. (Cutting may require adult assistance and can be pre-done). Cut along the solid lines only!

See the picture above if you're confused as to how to put this together. You might want to practice making the cone (without gluing) before you put the face on just so you can get a feel for what it looks like. The kids think it's pretty "magical" how the flat piece of paper turns into a cone!

Glue or tape the ears onto the top of the bunny.

Glue or tape the eyes and nose onto the face.

If you look at the bottom of the half circle (the straight part), you'll see the "glue here". Glue the side to the right of the teeth to the side to the left of the teeth.

Fold the ears and teeth on the dotted lines.

If you're making a bunny basket put a bit of tape on the teeth so the hole stays covered. (stuffing with a bit of shredded paper or tissue paper also keeps any candy from falling out the bottom).

Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).



Bunny Rabbit Ears
Very simple, but very fun!

Materials:
paper
tape
scissors


Instructions:
Make a strip of paper long enough to go around the child's head (you may need to tape to pieces end to end to get it long enough. You can make it thinner than we did, but my girls like the thick ones (they don't tear as easily and ride a bit higher on the head like a crown)

Print, color and cut out the ears

Tape the ears onto the strip

OPTIONAL: Decorate the strip with stickers/markers/etc as desired

Tape the strip in a loop so it fits on the head
