Make cute Easter bunnies from a plastic egg, pom-poms, and fun foam (or construction paper). You can even hide some Easter candy inside your bunny for a special Easter treat. [Thanks to Debbie, a Texas homeschooler, for this wonderful craft idea.]
- Plastic easter egg
- 2 medium or large white pompoms
- 1 small pink pompom
- 2 sheets of fun foam or construction paper (white and pink)
- Hot glue
- 2 googly eyes (the bigger the better)
- Optional – Pipe cleaners for whiskers
Cut two large white bunny ears that will go with your plastic egg. Cut two smaller pink ears that will fit inside the white ears. Glue the smaller pink piece inside the larger white piece, with the bottoms lined up. Repeat for other ear.
Glue the ears to the top of the small end of the egg, spacing them about 1/2” to 1” apart.
Glue the two white pompoms on the front of the egg just above where the egg opens up (these will be the chubby cheeks). Glue the pompoms together on the egg, then glue the pink pompom on the center, on top of the white pompoms, smushing it a little in between and up against the plastic egg.
Glue on the eyes; they look better if they are a bit over-sized. Put candy inside your bunny for a special treat.
