Cute Bouncing Bunny
- Cut two long strips of coloured copy paper, each about 3xcm wide and 15xcm long.
- Now, neatly lay one strip over the other, folding one side over the other until you reach the end and sticking the corners with a glue stick.
- Take a piece of copy paper and draw a cute bunny face, then cut it out.
- Glue the cut-out bunny face to the last flap of your folded strips.
- Draw hands and feet on the paper and carefully cut them out.
- Glue your bunny feet to the bottom side of your folded paper and stick the hands under the bunny’s face.
- Draw eyes, nose, and whiskers on the bunny face with a marker, or you can use joggle eyes to make a 3D eye effect.
- Your bunny is now prepared to hop on your favourite treats.
Adorable Cardboard Rolling Bunny
- To make the bunny body, cut a 10xcm long and 5xcm wide piece of coloured copy paper.
- For making hands and feet, make a 2.5xcm cut at the end of each side from the centre.
- Draw a bunny face 4xcm wide and 6xcm long on another piece of copy paper. Make sure your bunny’s face does not extend beyond the width of the cardboard roll.
- For bunny ears, cut two smaller ears from different coloured copy paper and glue them together with a glue stick.
- Make a cute bow for the bunny’s head and place it in the centre of the ears. Draw the nose, mouth, and whiskers with a marker.
- Take joggle eyes and put them nicely on the bunny cut one.
- Place the cardboard and then take the bunny body cut-out and glue it covering the entire cardboard roll.
- Cut a small piece of paper, fold it 3x times, and stick it in front of the cardboard roll. After that, glue the bunny’s face on top of it.
- Your bunny is now ready to roll over the Easter eats.
Easter Egg Goggles
- Make an egg shape out of A4 coloured copy paper, 4xcm wide and 6xcm long. Leave a 3xcm wide by 8cm long strip on the corners. Repeat the procedure with the second side of the goggle.
- Now, using a glue stick, join the egg cut-outs in the centre to make a goggle shape.
- Make a circle in the middle of both eggs and cut-it out with scissors or a snap cutter.
- Decorate the egg-shaped cut-outs entirely with rhinestones or sequence. Pom-poms can also be used as decoration.
- Gather your paint stash for painting the egg. To apply the paint, use a paintbrush or a sponge. You can choose any colour of your choice. Allow the paint to dry completely before applying a second coat for a truly brilliant finish.
- Once the paint has dried, draw the eyes and mouth with a maker.
- The next step is to take a coloured copy paper and draw goggles a few centimetres wider from the drawn eyes.
- Cut the goggles neatly and place them over the drawn eyes using a glue stick.
- You can use Pom poms or rhinestones to decorate the egg.
- To make an outfit, take coloured patty pans and cut the centre with scissors. Put the cut-out at the bottom, and your egg will be ready to steal the show.
