If you follow along on Instagram and Facebook, you’ll know that i’m rather heavily pregnant at the moment! I’m due on Easter Monday, so I thought i’d get the Easter themed crafts in a little earlier with the kids this year. As we’re also on a mission to use up as much recycling as possible, we decided to make these rather cute and quirky bunnies:
You will need:
- Toilet paper tubes
- Non-toxic acrylics or paint of your choice
- Chenille sticks/ pipe cleaners
- Googly eyes
- Posca pens or marker pens
- Glue gun/ strong glue/ tape
We started off the whole project with some process art:
All we did was squeeze some pastel themed colours into an old cardboard box and roll the toilet paper tubes in them. It took quite a bit of shaking and rolling to cover the tubes completely!
Once the tubes had dried, we used chenille sticks to make the bunny ears. One stick was cut in half and folded over, then glued in place with the help of our trusty glue gun!
Afterwards, we added some googly eyes. Older children can definitely help with this process, but I wouldn’t recommend letting a toddler wield a glue gun!
Finally, the kids let loose with the decoration process. We used Posca pens and stickers in our version:
