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.
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.
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?
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?!)
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.
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.
This is a bit like the very first Easter Bunny craft for toddlers, but here the paint goes on by way of a salad spinner which flings paint all over the pre-cut bunnies, leaving fun, modern art-like paint streaks – a good exercise in process art that I’m sure my kiddos will love. For the tutorial click the link above.
More opportunity for small-world play with these cute pipe cleaner bunny finger puppets. They’ll be so much fun.
If your toddlers like playing with play dough, but get a little sad when it has to be packed away, these salt dough Easter bunnies will be just the ticket. Not just a cute and easy Easter bunny craft for a toddler, but a keepsake too.
Paper Plate Easter Bunny Crafts To Do With Your Toddler
I wonder how many paper plates actually get used for food these days? They just make THE best canvas for soooo many toddler crafts, so lots of Easter Bunny arts and craft ideas here.
These are the prettiest Easter Bunnies – I love their floral fringes! Not sure those bits would stay on very long in our house as my kiddos love to pull and pick off, anything that can be. Like most toddlers, I’m thinking. But even minus the flowers, these look a fun and easy Easter bunny craft to try.
Printing and cutting out for mom and then sticking it all together for your Easter Bunny-loving toddler. Easy as.
Toddlers just love disappearing into the land of make-believe and just love to dress up, so these Easter bunny masks will keep them entertained for quite a while.
This Easter Bunny wreath uses old paint chip cards which you will need to cut into egg shapes. Your toddler can then be in charge of sticking them on (perhaps an opportunity to practice color recognition) and, when done, this Easter bunny craft also doubles as a fun mask for your toddler.
A sweet and whimsical paper plate Easter bunny craft for toddlers that love flowers – this one will suit my daughter down to the ground.
An easy Easter bunny craft that actually rocks and hops! What an ingenious use of a paper plate. I can see us ending up with quite a few of these…
A super easy, super cute mask to turn your toddler into an Easter bunny. Every little kid’s dream!
Hoppin’ Bunny Footprint Art
No list of Easter bunny arts and crafts would be complete without some hand and footprint art. So here’s some fun Easter Bunny crafts for toddlers where their footprint takes center stage. These will make wonderful Easter keepsakes, just try to keep those paint-covered feet from hopping too far…
An adorable Easter craft for toddlers that’ll be loved by everyone for a long time.
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.
This footprint bunny craft for toddlers looks a little more legit, as its tail is off to the side. I do like the big thumper feet that have been added on and the one floppy ear – very cute.
Rather than make your toddlers footprint look like a bunny, in this one the footprint becomes the bunny’s feet – clever and easy too.
Similar to the first footprint bunny craft minus the whiskers, these footprint bunnies make a lot more sense: this is definitely the back of the bunny.
This bunny craft for toddlers is like the last, but brings a touch of nature in (the tails are made from catkins).
The Cutest Bunny Handprint Crafts To Do With Your Toddler
I’m never sure which I worry about more – paint-covered feet or paint-covered hands… Either way, they’re normally worth the effort a few years down the line. It’s just amazing how quickly these littles ones grow. Anyway, on to those Easter bunny handprint crafts.
On this one, you need to tuck your toddler’s thumb in, so you get a 4 fingered handprint. Then color between the two left fingers and between the two right ones to make the bunny ears.
This handprint craft looks fairly easy and your 3-year-old will have fun drawing the face and feet on.
This Easter bunny toddler craft is similar to the last – what a great idea to do the handprint on a tile? It can be used for years to come as a coaster.
Loving these Easter bunnies with hands for ears.
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.
In this bunny craft you need to glue 3 TP rolls together to make the bunny head and ears outline. The grass is painted on with a fork to get that streaky look. Another fun Easter craft for your toddler.
This toilet paper roll craft doesn’t have a template but looks just as easy. Toddlers will have fun cutting pipe cleaners to size and sticking those googly eyes on.
Printable Easter Bunny Crafts For 1-2 Years Olds
There have already been a few along the way but this section is dedicated purely to toddler Easter bunny crafts with printables, so if your artistic skills aren’t much better than your 1, 2 or 3-year-olds or you simply need things prepared yesterday, these crafts are for you.
Toddlers love to dress up and get lost in a world of make-believe, so hats and headbands are always a winner! This cute bunny headband craft is sure to be a hit.
An Easter bunny craft that doubles as a toy – another must for toddlers that love small-world play. I know my daughter is going to love this is this easy hopping bunny rabbit.
A sweet bunny sitting inside the Easter basket – “Has it eaten all the chocolate eggs?” I can hear my chocolate-obsessed 3-year-old asking! This craft will take a bit of patience alongside some fine motor practice so best suited to older toddlers.
Another bunny craft that I reckon will be played with for quite some time in our house. I can just imagine the bunny hopping races that are going to take place.
Easter bunny crafts with cotton balls & other sensory fun for toddlers
These toddler crafts each have a sensory element to them, lots of them involving cotton wool which are, of course, perfect for Easter bunnies.
Turn cotton wool pads into an Easter bunny for a sweet and easy Easter bunny card. Grass and Easter egg candy wrappers complete the picture.
Your toddler will love making this fluffy and very cuddly-looking paper plate Easter bunny.
Puffy paint is so much fun to use – I think I enjoyed it more than the kids when we last used it. It’s dead simple to make – here’s a recipe that uses shaving cream, white glue and food coloring. (Yes, white glue is an ingredient – beware, the clean up can be a chore if you’re not careful!)
Ripping up paper is a fun sensory messy play activity that can keep toddlers busy for quite a few minutes. Take this activity further by turning all the ripped paper into a paper bunnt craft.
This bunny craft is perfect for toddlers starting on letter and sound recognition. What better way to learn a “B”?
The best Easter bunny basket crafts to make with toddlers
This Easter bunny craft for toddlers is not only easy and cute but practical too; all those Easter treasures and candies will be happily transported around in these paper plate bunny treat bags.
Rather than an Easter basket, your toddler can collect their candies in these homemade bunny dishes. (Good chance for little ones to practice some scissor skills too.)
Toddlers are going to love this easy bunny basket craft that uses the bottom half of a plastic container, covered in white duct tape. Simply add cardboard ears, eyes, nose and rosy cheeks and you’re done.
Non-candy treats are just what you want for toddlers, who can help make these cute Easter bunny crayon packs. You could also use them for the infamous Easter treat hunt and hide them around the house or garden.
These paper mache Easter baskets are to die for – the bunny one is particularly cute, though I do also love the cockerel. Paper mache crafts can be a little messy but they can keep little ones entertained for ages – definitely better done outside if possible.
Instead of a basket, why not try an Easter bunny cup for collecting all those for all those Easter goodies (this one doesn’t need painting so this has the edge for me).
Other fun & easy Easter Bunny Crafts & Activities To Do With Your Toddler
This basically the best of the rest: easy Easter bunny crafts for toddlers, Easter activities too.
Pegging on those clothespins with the pincer grasp will be help build finger strength in preparation for learning to write. Plus, young kids love playing with clothespins.
More clothespins, but this time each one is a cute little bunny.
Toddlers will also delight in collecting their candies and then feeding their bunny – clever and cute, this one is sure to be a hit with my two.
DIY Easter bunny ears that use twigs – there will be plenty of photo opportunities here.
A bunny craft and fun activity. Your toddler could help with the painting too (I reckon the one in the picture above was mostly mom’s effort) and will certainly enjoy putting the puzzle together.
Turn an old brown paper bag into an Easter bunny – quick and easy craft to prep for when you have a sudden need to keep your toddler busy and entertained over the Easter holidays.
This looks a fun paper Easter craft, but one mainly for mom. Your toddler can help with the fun task of drawing the face on and I’m sure will delight in playing with the finished bunny.
One of these Easter bookmarks will make a lovely keepsake, or what about a gift for a loved ones.
This is definitely one for the crafty mom who’s able to sew and definitely worth the effort as toddlers are going to love playing with these cute sleeping bunnies. These will appeal to older kids too – my 5 year old would still love this type of craft. Shame my sewing is not up to much.
Last and by no means least, is this easy potato stamped Easter bunny card – isn’t it just adorable?
