Bunny Silhouette Art

Arty Crafty Kids | Easter Art for Kids | Bunny Silhouette Easter art for kids, with a free template included #craftsforkids #kidscrafts #eastercraftsforkids

This Bunny Silhouette Art project is perfect for Spring or Easter themed crafting. This time year, bunnies are everywhere. Our fields are filled with the presence of scurrying bunnies and shelves are stacked high with Easter merchandise. Of course, today’s craft is inspired by the former and is an adorable activity for young children.

Supplied with a handy template, featuring two large bunnies; kids will have an opportunity to practice their cutting skills, as well as their pencil grip when tracing around the template.

It’s an activity that many children will be able to complete independtly or with just a little help, making it perfect for at home or within a group/class environment.

Step 1: Download the template and gather your materials.

Watch our nifty to see how the Bunny Silhouette Spring Art project is made:

 

Step 2: Create the backdrop using watercolour paints.

The backdrop can be whatever your Arty Crafty Kids choose it to be. Encourage them to play with the paints and colours, to see how the blend and form.

Show them a sunset or sunrise, and perhaps set the challenge of creating their own – what colours do they need?

Step 3: Cut out a bunny from the template provided and trace it onto a black piece of card.

Step 4: Cut out the traced bunny.

Step 5: Using a piece of A4 green card or paper, create a grassy ridge and stick it along the bottom of the page.

Step 6: Position the bunny silhouette onto the grass and secure with PVA glue.

Pop Up Paper Plate Bunny

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter | Pop Up Paper Plate Bunny | A fun and easy Easter craft for kids!

This Pop Up Paper Plate Bunny is super fun and easy to make. Perfect for Easter crafting with the kids this Spring, who will just LOVE playing with their Easter Bunny creations!

It’s a great little craft to do during Spring where kids may begin to notice baby bunnies emerging from the fields. With grandparents who live in the country, my own kids love playing ‘spot the bunny’ in neighbouring fields and grass verges along the country roads.

With this in mind, the pop-up aspect of our Easter Craft is particularly apt.

Using materials you’re likely to already have stashed away in the craft cupboard, this couldn’t be easier to set up.

Sound good? let’s get started…

Next, let’s read all bout it.

To begin, cut off the top third of the paper plate and then align the cut-off third with the bottom of the remaining paper plate.

You should have a nice gap between the paper plates.

Staple the two parts of the paper plate together, using the staples sparingly and cut out a zig-zagged jagged edge along the top of the paper plate to create the appearance of a broken egg.

For younger children, you may want to help out with the cutting and sticking, however kids of around preschool age will love to try this themselves.

And for the best bit, the kids can use their artistic license to decorate their eggs in the most spectacular and individual way.

They could use paint, tissue paper, colouring pens, stickers or anything else you have at home!

We chose to decorate our Easter egg with metallic paint, which leaves a gorgeous sparkly sheen.

While the Easter Egg is drying, let’s make the bunny!

Simply cut out a heart shape for the face and some bunny ears using contrasting coloured paper.

Assemble the paper together to make a ‘bunny face’ and add some craft straw for whiskers.

Complete the bunny with a pair of eyes and mouth, and affix to a drinking straw.

Add the bunny to the paper plate and start playing!

This craft puts me in the mind the of the popular nursery song “Sleeping Bunnies”

See the little bunnies sleeping till it’s nearly noon
Come and let us gently wake them with a merry tune
Oh how still, are they ill, wake up soon
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop

And could be a really fun song to sing along with our Pop Up Paper Plate Bunny, especially if you’re trying this craft with a toddler or preschool group!
