Easter give kids a great excuse to get crafty making adorable bunnies, chickens and brightly coloured eggs. It’s a fun time of year that kids love to celebrate and the chocolate eggs are just an added bonus!
These little bunnies are so cute and although a little fiddly they’re fun to make and of course they don’t need to be perfect. We used the capsules from the Kinder Surprise Eggs as the shell, so the kids will be pleased that they also get an early Easter egg out of the project.
- Kinder Surprise Egg (the yellow capsule inside the egg once the toy is emptied out)
- Craft glue
- Cotton balls
- Black cardboard (eyes and whiskers)
- Pink cardboard (small nose)
- White cardboard (ears)
- Pink texta
- Glue dots (or just glue if you don’t have glue dots)
- Colourful paper/cardboard/ribbon for the bow tie
1. Cut out 2 ears and colour the inside pink.
2. Cut out 2 small black eyes, a small pink nose, a set of black whiskers and a bow tie (you could even use a hole punch for the eyes and nose).
3. Open the Kinder Surprise capsule, insert the ends of the ears and close the capsule to hold the ears in place.
4. Squeeze some glue around half of the capsule so that you hold the other end. Wrap the capsule in a few cotton balls to cover and then do the same to the other end.
5. Once the bunnies fluffy body has dried, stick on the eyes, nose, whiskers and bow tie using a glue dot or glue.
We started with just one bunny but I suppose for each Kinder Surprise we eat there’s no reason why we can’t keep adding to the bunny family!
