Easter Bunny Craft

The great thing about doing crafts sometimes with your kids is that it can be things that you find around your home. This craft is a favourite in our house because it uses things that are creative, easy to use and it is simply adorable for a great Easter decoration and can be brought out year after year after year.

Here's what you will need:

  • 2 x Paper plates
  • Cotton balls
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Google Eyes 
  • Marshmallows
  • Glue
  • Scissors

First you will need to take four pipe cleaners and tie them together and shape them to make the nose and the whiskers and the mouth. We used pink for the mouth and black for the whiskers and then we used a marshmallow for the nose. 

Next week cut one paper plate so that we had two ears. First cut the paper plate in half so that you can cut two ears. Then cut the one side so that you have the ear on the outer piece as shown below.

I placed the cotton balls and the marshmallows in bowls so that my son could pick them out and glue them as he wanted and felt that he had creative freedom to do what he wanted. 

He first glued the google eyes onto the full plate and we used that as the head.

Then he glued the cotton balls where he wanted to and then he decided that he wanted the marshmallows on the ears only. 

He then glued the nose onto his completed face and then we glued the ears onto the back of the plate. I also recommend using tape if you want to be able to hang it up right away without waiting for the glue to dry on the paper plates. 

He then decided to have pink as the inside of the bunny ears so he glued them onto where the paper plate had a mark for them (based on our cut). 

How cute and easy is this bunny craft?! Your kids will be so proud looking at it and you can bring it out every year and use it as a decoration for Easter! Such a fun and creative Easter craft for kids!

Thanksgiving Crafty FUN!

The table needs to be set, the turkey in the oven and the dessert still isn't done. The kids are whining that they are bored as the adults are watching football on TV.... sound familiar?? Well here are 3 crafts that you can set up at a small kids craft table during your Thanksgiving celebration to keep them busy and decorate for Thanksgiving! 

 

1. Turkey Leaf Craft - 

If you're going to use real leaves, this is another great activity that you can do with the kids while you're family is together.  Get the whole family outside for a nice Fall hike and find some amazing and vibrant leaves. 

This craft is great for kids to use their fine motor skills while cutting out the parts and the pieces for the turkey and gluing them together. You can use real leaves or artificial leaves.  If you let the leaves dry enough, (or you use artificial ones) you can even get the child or your entire family to write their names on the leaves or what they are thankful for this Thanksgiving!

2. Turkey Place Setting Craft -  

This is a fun craft for the kids (or the whole family!) to craft before supper is ready so that it can be placed on the table to know where everyone is sitting. 

We simply used patterned paper as the turkey tail and then cut out the turkey shapes for his body and beak and then used googly eyes. We used a fancy tag punch for the tag. It also helps to have a nice fancy napkin behind them ;)

3. Turkey Plate Craft -  

This was one of our favourites as it's always fun to get the good old paint out :) 

Just as the first craft, you will need either artificial or real vibrant leaves. Simply paint a paper plate and use google eyes and cut a beak and a waddle. Then glue the leaves to the back of the paper plate! Such a fun and creative craft to do :)
