With Easter just a few days away, I thought of sharing one last holiday craft: a bunny holding Easter egg craft. It combines a coloring activity (kids can color the Easter egg) with a cute bunny craft.
Bunnies make great crafts for both spring and Easter and we have an awesome collection of 50 bunnies for you to check out. This bunny is created with Easter in mind, as the little boy or girl bunny holds a big Easter egg between its arms.
While you can print the Easter eggs directly on colored paper, I like the idea of printing them on white paper and let kids color them. It adds a bit more personality to the craft and makes it unique. If you use this craft in a classroom, there won’t be two crafts alike.
I have created four different designs for the Easter egg:
The bunny comes with an easy template. It has big patterns that are easy to cut by preschoolers and kindergartners.

HOW TO MAKE the Easter bunny CRAFT
The Easter bunny template comes with two versions:
1. home template – cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.
2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.
This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS
Start by coloring the Easter egg.
Glue the ears at the top of the body.
Glue the bowtie between the head and body (for the boy) or the hair bow under one ear (for the girl).
Glue the Easter egg in the middle of the body.
Glue the arms onto the body, as if holding the egg.
Glue the nose in the middle of the head.
Use a black marker to draw the eyes, whiskers and mouth.
