In the freezing cold of the first three days of Spring Break the boys and I were searching for something to do and they really wanted to create a project. They were inspired by the first episode of Spring Baking Championship (it featured bunny cakes), so they wanted to make something bunny themed. I rummaged through my craft box and came up with paper plates, cotton balls, pom poms and pipe cleaners. And I came up with bunny masks.
The boys began coloring and cutting out ears, while I put holes for eyes in the paper plates:
And then we attached the ears:
And added a whole bunch of cotton balls attached with glue:
And then we added whiskers and a nose:
Easy bunny craft for the win!
A is VERY into art lately. Drawing and coloring are his main jam, and I have found him up at 6:00 coloring some mornings. While we were waiting on a cousin playdate today I did two really quick crafts with the boys that you could do this weekend, without even leaving the house for supplies!
First up, A’s Easter Egg Art:
I printed out a free Easter Egg template and A colored it, cut it out, and taped it on a piece of purple cardstock. I then put it in the IKEA frame on my hutch.
Second, Easter Bunny Plate:
J got bored with the Easter Egg coloring pretty quickly, so I knew I needed another craft, and quick! Hence the bunny plate. I just used the back of a paper plate, cotton balls, googly eyes, two ears cut out of paper, a pom pom, and a pipe cleaner. J loves using glue sticks so he had a great time putting it together. He ran out of the glue stick midway through and so I switched to handing him pieces of rolled tape. This was fun….even if it only lasted for about ten minutes because he ran off with it and tore it apart. That kid.
And don’t worry….Friday Favorites are coming up soon! 🙂
