How to make Easter egg box bunnies
Posted on April 10 2020
Easter weekend is already here and of course, with current events meaning we will be staying at home; we’ve made a fun how-to Easter themed activity to do with the kids this weekend!
Kids will love painting these cute little bunnies with spring colours and cute button noses. The best thing about these bunnies is that they are made out of recycled materials and chances are, you will have most of the items needed already at home! No need to leave the house!
Make them together and give them as part of an Easter basket or sit them proudly on your Easter table.
Let’s get started!
These are the items you will need to make you Egg Box Bunnies:
- An egg box
- Cotton Wool
- Masking Tape
- White Card
- Hole Puncher
- Paint of your choice
- Paint Brush
- Tissue Paper
- (Most importantly ) Mini Chocolate Eggs
- A Black Marker
Follow these steps to make your Easter bunnies.
Don’t forget to get creative and add a little personality to each of these funny little bunnies – we added fluttery eyelashes to ours!
1. Start by cutting out the top and the bottom of an egg compartment and trim off any excess card around the edges
2. Paint the eggs the colour of your choice and allow to dry
3. Whilst drying, cut out some cute little bunny ears with the excess card and paint the ears
4. Use the Hole Punch to cut out two perfect round sized circles for the eyes
5. Use the black marker to colour in the eyes (we like to stick them on masking tape first so they don’t move around whilst colouring)
6. Next, add some glue to the back of the eyes and stick them in place on the top half of the bunny. Add some pretty eye-lashes or funky eyebrows, get creative!
7. Take some tissue paper and roll up into a ball, use the glue to stick the nose down and add some whiskers
8. Add some glue to the centre of the bunny ears and place down some cotton wool then add glue to the bottom of the ears and glue them in place on your bunny
9. Trim down the back of the egg compartments and place them on top of each other with the flat tops touching. Take a piece of masking tape and put a piece on the back. Then open the bunny and do the same for the inside
Now fill with your mini chocolate eggs and add them to your Easter Hunt or simply enjoy!
