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 s 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.

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.
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.
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 fun and an easy Easter bunny I’m going to have 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…
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.
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…
Draw on whiskers and ears plus cotton ball tail and 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 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 simple.
Similar to the first footprint bunny craft minus the whiskers – makes a lot more sense, so this is definitely the back of the bunny.
This bunny craft for toddlers is similar to the last one, 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 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
To get this into the “simple” toddler Easter crafts category, leave the toilet paper rolls unpainted – a little more rustic but will be just as cute. Older toddlers can help cut out the ears while younger ones might manage to cut the pipe cleaners but will definitely enjoy helping to stick it all together.
