We want to offer our sincerest thanks to everyone who entered! Because of all of your counting, we will be donating $500 to the Lycoming County SPCA! Seriously, y’all are amazing! I received a ton of entries in the contest and can’t wait to continue the tradition next year! Of course, we’ll have another one for Halloween in October too! And as always, thank you to Jimmy for always giving a little extra in these contests! The kitties and doggos appreciate it!

Y’all know I love a good kids’ craft. I just feel they are a great way to spend quality time with your family and you have this really cool thing when you are done! So, when I came across this adorable little Easter Bunny craft from, I knew I needed share it with you!
As they note, “What is even more cool is you can make a whole bunch of these and hang them on a string to make a garland. Just imagine this as a classroom craft!”
This craft is probably better suited for the older set, rather than pre-schoolers (but I’m sure they’d do fine with assistance!), but I can’t get over how cute these little buggers are! So…
Let’s make these!
Easy Paper Bunny Craft
What you need:
– pastel blue construction paper
– pastel pink construction paper
– scissors or paper trimmer
– wiggle eye stickers
– glue
– white paper
– black marker

Cut 4 long strips of paper (cut along the length of the A4/letter sized paper) and 4 shorter strips of paper (cut along the width of the A4/letter sized paper).

The width of the strips is about the width of a thumb.

Take the 2 long strips and glue them together making a cross.

Glue the other 2 long strips, making a snowflake. All strips must be evenly distributed (no need to be super precise though).

Do the same with the short strips.

Take the “snowflake” with long strips and start making a paper ball.

Glue the strips together, forming loops, until all strips are glued together and you get a nice looking ball.

Do the same with the short strips “snowflake”.

Now you got two sized paper balls.

Glue the paper balls together.

You might need to hold them together for a while for the glue to really dry.

Cut the ears out of pastel blue construction paper.

Also cut a smaller set out of pastel pink and glue it inside the blue ears.

Cut a snout and draw a nose.

Also cut teeth out of white paper and draw a line in the middle with a black marker.

Glue the teeth on the snout.

Glue the ears and the snout on the head (smaller ball) part of the bunny.

Add two wiggle eye stickers.

Your Easy Paper Bunny Craft is all done and ready to be displayed.

I hope that you all have a Happy & Blessed Easter!
