Easter Bunny Paper Plate
- Paper plate
- White card stock
- Light pink felt
- Jumbo craft stick
- White pipe cleaners
- Hot glue/hot glue gun OR Elmers Glue if kids will be doing the gluing themselves.
1. Cut a paper plate in half.
2. Using a pencil draw on two half oval eyes and carefully cut out with scissors.
3. Cut out two long oval ears and a heart about 4″ wide by 3″ tall from your white card stock.
4. Glue the bottom of your heart to the bottom middle of your paper plate.
5. Cut out smaller heart from your felt and glue the bottom of the heart to the bottom of the heart.
6. Then cut out (6) 3″ pieces of pipe cleaner and glue 3 to each side of the white heart.
7. Cut out 2 long ovals from your pink felt slightly smaller than the white paper ones, glue the pink ovals onto the white ovals, and cut the bottoms flat for the ears.
8. Glue the ears to the back top of the plate.
9. Then glue a jumbo craft stick onto one side of the plate to use as a handle.
One thing that I really love about this craft is that you can easily adjust it to the age level of the children. You could have your shapes pre-cut before they begin to assemble if they are not yet to that ability OR you could use these different cutting tasks to help with scissor work and skill building.

This craft is sooo cute for preschoolers!!! They can do most of the glueing with help and still feel like they made it by themselves. Can’t wait to try this out with my group! Thanks for sharing
