Easter Bunny Puppet

Easter Bunny Puppet
On the blog we are getting into the Easter spirit and making a super quick and easy Easter Bunny Puppet. Why not give it a try as well?

The boys are very excited about Easter this year, the promise of chocolate and having time off to do fun things is appealing I think!

This weekend we decided to do a couple of easy Easter crafts and baking, which I am going to share with you in the lead up to Easter.  I would love you to try it out at home as well and share your results with me.

We did what we always do when we and thinking about new crafts, I ask the boys what they want to make.  They are in love with rabbits at the moment so it was not a huge surprise for me that D asked for an easter bunny puppet.

We still have loads of paper plates in the cupboard, which you will know if you managed to catch my paper plate animals post.  So it made sense to use these.

What you need to make an easter bunny puppet

Easter Bunny Puppet

What you need:

  • glue
  • scissors
  • googly eyes
  • a paper plate
  • coloured card
  • a pen

We started off with cutting out a circle from the paper plate.  We just cut out the inner circle using safety scissors, so the kids could help.

Then we used the coloured card to cut out a circular face.  I am all about using what you have to hand to help out, so we used a coaster to get the perfect shape.

Cheating… maybe, but I am not very good at drawing ‘freestyle’.

Once that was cut out, we stuck it onto the top of the paper plate.  We then made a face with the googly eyes and used the pen to draw the mouth.  In our craft box, we have lots of little fuzzy balls – sorry I don’t know the technical term – which we used for the nose.

We then cut out ears, with a different colour for the inside.  We glued them together and then stuck them onto the bunny as well.

Then all we needed to do was cut out two little circles for the ‘legs’ – i.e. our fingers – to make the puppet.

Here is the finished product:

D was very happy with his new puppet! However, L wanted to make something a little different.  We will be sharing that on the blog next week.

I would love to see your creations, please tag me on social media or let me know what you are making for Easter in the comments below.

    I feel awful that we didn’t indulge in more Easter crafts but we were all so sick! I’m going to compile a list including this to crack on with the little ones. Thanks for the idea. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Kaye xo

    That’s such a cute Puppet and it looks like something, the most “uncrafty” mom ever can manage as well. Thanks for sharing with #bigpinklink
