Easter Bunny Crafts

This makes a great preschool Easter Craft, although my twelve year old still loves making them.


We collect toilet roll tubes for a few months leading up to Easter, then we make lots of Easter Bunny Crafts out of them. I also save ribbons, stickers, buttons, lace or anything that could be used for decorating.

It is really simple, you can decorate them however you want, cutting out cardboard ears, using cotton balls for the fluffy Easter Bunny tail. We usually wrap them in coloured card or paper first, or make paper clothes for the Easter Bunny! Some Easter Bunnies have clothes on, some are boys and some are girls. My three year old even made an Easter Bunny Santa one year! I think she was getting a little confused!

Sometimes we use fluffy pipe cleaners to shape the ears, or for whiskers, or use thin card or nylon thread or wire for the whiskers.

We might draw on the rabbit face, or use cutout card and glue on the shapes. You can buy googly eyes that are fun, and sometimes we make Bunny families.

These make great finger puppets, and many an Easter we have sat around watching the kids perform The Grand Easter Bunny Puppet Show!

The other thing we do, is close off the bottom of the Easter Bunny, and then fill the center up with little wrapped Easter eggs, or you can just squeeze the marshmallow eggs into the tube. Always use wrapped eggs, since after all it was once a toilet roll! Sometimes we put a hard boiled egg on the top, that we have dyed with Easter Egg Dye.

Then we give these Easter Bunnies away as gifts to visiting children or family over Easter. The most we have made in a year was 63 Easter Bunnies!

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
