This week, I had my kids make some Easter bunnies and chicks. It’s a simple craft, but we made them into true decorations with a paper stand on back to stand them up!
For this Stand Up Bunny and Chick Easter Paper Craft, you first need to make your bunny and chick faces. For this, cut out a circle of yellow paper for the chick and white for the bunny. For the white paper, you may want to double up, or use white cardstock just because it can be see-through. Make their hair and ears. Glue on large googly eyes. Apply whiskers to the bunny with some thin scraps of white paper. I also added a red bow to the chick. Then, construct your stand on back. The stand is made of cardstock, and very easy to do.
- white, pink, yellow, and orange paper
- large googly eyes
- red ribbon (optional)
- black pen, crayon, or marker
Cut large circles from the white and yellow papers for your bunnies and chicks faces. Glue on googly eyes for each.
For the bunny, cut a small circle of pink for the bunny’s nose and glue on. Take thin strips of the white paper, tuck those under his pink nose and glue on. Cut out white ears and smaller pieces of pink for the inside. Glue those on the back. Draw on his mouth with a black pen, crayon, or marker.
For the chick, cut more yellow for the tuft of it’s hair and a triangle of orange for it’s beak, then glue those on, too. Make a bow with a piece of red ribbon and glue that on.
To make the stand, cut out a rectangle of cardstock to fit the height of your bunnies and chicken when folded. Fold and glue in place. Take a small rectangle and connect it from end to the other to hold in place.
Of course, customize them however you and your kids see fit. Then place around your house for festive, and personalized Easter decorations!
