We are getting excited about Easter around here! My kids have been asking to decorate eggs, bake cookies, make fun crafts and decorate the house for the Easter holiday. How could I say no?
One of my favorite Easter crafts to do as a child was making Easter bunny ears. We would put on the ears and hop around acting like the silly bunny himself. So this year, I decided to let my kids make some Easter bunny ears of their own.
It was time to pull out the Elmer’s glue, construction paper and have fun!
What you need to make fluffy Easter bunny ears:
- Elmer’s Glue
- Brown Construction Paper
- Pink Construction Paper
- Cotton Balls
- 2 Wide Popsicle Sticks
I started out by taking a piece of brown construction paper, fold it in half and cut out a large bunny ear. By folding the paper in half, it will make the other ear uniform.
Then I do the same thing with the pink piece of paper, but this time making it smaller than the bunny ears. Let the kid’s smear some Elmer’s glue onto the pink middle and push it into place.
I cut two strips of brown paper and stapled them together to form a circle, measuring from your child’s head.
Then turn the bunny ears over and glue a popsicle stick to the back, this will provide support to the bunny ears and keep them from flopping over.
Staple the bunny ears to the headband and let it sit until the popsicle sticks are dried out.
To make the bunny ears “fluffy”, the kid’s put a bit of Elmer’s glue onto a cotton ball and placed them around the bunny ear. This adds quite a bit of weight to the ears so you will want to make sure the popsicle stick is dry before doing this.
