The Easter Bunny is nearly on its way! The excitement of the upcoming Easter Egg hunt is already too much for my preschooler, and my toddler is catching on quick… Yeah, for the endless questions about how many days or, “is it today, Mom?”, ” Tomorrow? Tonight”, or my favorite, “Yester-night?” 

Well, to keep the questions at bay, those little hands busy and the even busier minds occupied, it’s time for some Easter Bunny crafts, specifically with the toddler in mind (2-3 years old).  Of course, there will be no stopping my preschooler from joining in – these Easter Bunnies will also be fun for 4 and 5-year-olds.

Regardless of age, these Easter Bunny crafts just have to be easy.   Otherwise, you-know-who will have to get a lot more involved than she’d like. (That’s me by the way.)  Now, that’s not that I don’t love a bit of crafting, but these days I really do have my hands full.  (A 6-month-old twin in each, to be precise…)

That aside, I always like to encourage my older two to be independent and self-sufficient, and my eldest at 5, certainly wants that too.

So, here are some easy Easter Bunny crafts for toddlers as well as some other fun hoppin’ and jumpin’ Easter arts and crafts ideas, all of which will be enjoyed by older kids too.  

For Easter chick, Easter basket and a whole bunch of other Easter crafts, check out these toddler Easter crafts and these easy Easter crafts and activities for 3 year olds.

And if you’re celebrating baby’s first Easter too, or babies plural, as I am, hop on over here for some Easter activities for babies

Happy crafting and Happy Easter!

The Easiest Of The Easy Easter Bunny Crafts For Toddlers

This first section has the easiest bunny crafts for toddlers, which means minimum outside assistance needed, maximum autonomy… That’s the theory anyway. So, although there’s a section just on paper plate Easter Bunny crafts further on in this post, I’ve included some of the easiest ones right here.  Same goes for the printables and bunny crafts with cotton wool – I’ve put the easiest of these up here.

#1 Messy Painted Easter Cards

Let your toddler go wild with color and paint however and wherever she wants (as long as it’s on paper of course…) allow to dry, cut out bunny shapes and stick onto blank cards.  How’s that for an easy Easter toddler bunny craft?

#2 Fluffy Easter Bunny Paper Plate Craft

This is mainly an exercise in sticking – a glue stick should see your toddler through most of this Easter bunny craft, leaving you to help with nose and whiskers with some PVA glue if you don’t quite trust your little one with something that sticky (just me?!)

#3 Use Contact Adhesive For An Easy Easter Bunny Craft Perfect For Toddlers

I don’t know who invented contact adhesive but I feel the need to thank them!  This really does mean you can leave your toddler to get on with things with very little worry when it comes to mess and stickiness going everywhere… The trickiest bit is getting the adhesive on the wall or window, but once that’s done all you need to do is draw the Easter bunny outline and let your toddler get going.

#4 Hatching Easter Bunny

I’ve no idea why a bunny would be hatching out of an egg, but there’s something that just works about this Easter bunny craft, right?!  Younger toddlers will need help cutting, but will have fun sticking on eyes and whiskers and the egg can be decorated, aka scribbled on, any old how.  For the full tutorial and free printable click the link above.

#16 Easter Bunny Footprint artwork

Draw on whiskers and ears plus cotton ball tail and your toddler’s feet are transformed into a sweet pair of bunnies.  What I  have just noticed though, is that the bunny apparently has its tail on its tummy, or are my eyes deceiving me?! Cute all the same.

Easter Bunny Crafts To Make With Toilet Paper Rolls

After paper plates, aren’t toilet paper rolls the next most useful thing when it comes to toddler crafts?  Luckily, since there’s normally a total overuse of toilet paper in our house, (why use 5 sheets when you can use 50, right?!) there’s no shortage of toilet paper rolls.

This toilet paper roll Easter Bunny looks like it could just hop across the table! That or waddle (it could definitely be easily converted to a penguin…)  The template makes this a nice easy bunny craft – you could simplify further by skipping the paint part, making your Easter bunnies brown instead of white.

A little about me

About me pic

Hi, I'm Sarah

Mum of two outrageously gorgeous and ridiculously energetic toddlers – A.K.A. not so little, Littllees.  I’m determined to give them the best without losing my mind.  I reckon it’s possible.  Most days.  

I love a challenge and have to find out they ‘why’, ‘what’ or ‘how to’  –  there are rather a lot of these when it comes to kids… 

I also love, love, love things to be neat and tidy and just so.   The Littlees normally have other ideas!
