While this is a perfect Easter craft idea, not all of us celebrate the same holidays. Those who do celebrate can make an Easter bunny and those that don’t can make a spring bunny. This makes it easier in the classroom. Although some children don’t celebrate Easter, they do hear about it in the classroom from other children. Teachers like to be inclusive, so during the school year the students learn about the celebrations other kids partake in.

Step 1:

Trace the inner ear on a peach paper, nose, and blush cutouts on pink paper, trace the tail, tooth, and the belly patterns on white paper, trace the head, body (see next step), and outer ear patterns on the lighter shade of grey paper, and then trace the leg patterns on the other shade of grey paper. Cut out the traced pattern nicely.

Cut out a piece of paper from the lighter shade of grey coloured craft paper to cover either side of the paper bag. This will be the body pattern of the bunny puppet. Attach the leg cutouts on the bottom side of the body cutout.
