You can never have too many Easter bunnies floating around the house, right?
Well, maybe you can, but these ones are extra easy to make with a simple squash and cut technique that we’ve used for lots of our paper roll creations.
I love the soft pastel colours of Easter so I decided to paint our bunnies in pastel purple, yellow and pink. Of course, the sky is the limit and you can paint them any colour you like!
I especially love their cute pom pom tails!
This Easter bunny craft is fun for all ages. Little kids will need you to cut out the shape for them, then they can paint and decorate it. Bigger kids will be able to do the squashing, tracing and cutting themselves.
