Easter is almost here, but we have time for one more Easter bunny craft! Especially when it’s as cute as this adorable Paper Plate Easter Bunny Craft!
This Paper Plate Easter Bunny Craft also has the cutest bobble head that bounces from the bottom plate. You can either just bobble it laying flat, or it helps the bunny stand up. All with his cute little cotton tail on top, as if it’s digging in the dirt. I’ll try to stop saying cute now, but really. How cute!
For our Paper Plate Easter Bunny Craft you will need 2 paper plates each. We used the smaller dessert size plates. Also needed is paint in bunny colors, paper in bunny colors, and medium poms in bunny colors, too. Small-medium googly eyes, a black marker, a ⅝” circle punch, scissors, and a glue stick are the remainder of the supplies.
Paper Plate Easter Bunny Craft
- Small paper plates
- Acrylic paint – grey, pink, blue, etc.
- Light cardstock – pink, blue, white, etc.
- Poms – pink, blue, white, etc.
- Googly eyes, small-medium
- Black marker
- ⅝” circle punch
- Glue stick
Begin by painting 2 of the paper plates. Paint the bottom of one plate and the inside of the other. In the below instruction we actually painted the pieces after we cut them out, but it’s truly easier to just paint the plates first.
Set the bottom painted plate aside. This one remains intact. The painted inside plate, cut out the inner circle. Then, from the plate that’s remaining, cut out two ears and two smaller circles, too.
Cut a flat edge on both of the smaller circles.
From a different color of the light cardstock, cut two inner ears. Use the ⅝” punch to punch a circle for the nose.
Glue those in place.
Use the black marker to draw whiskers, a mouth, and toe lines on the flat edge of the smaller circles.
Adhere googly eyes.
And glue the feet to the back of the circle, so that the flat edges are on the bottom.
Now cut two strips from the light cardstock. Glue in an L shape.
Fold one over the other. Glue the ends in place.
Glue to the back of the bunny, up in the center near the ears.
Then position on the paper plate.
Finally, finish by adding a pom for the tail.
This bunny sure makes us hoppy! Be sure to check out all of our fun Easter crafts for kids at Our Kid Things!
