Get into the Easter spirit by crafting this Easter Bunny from simple paper lunch bags.  Children will love this easy kids Easter craft!

Materials and Supplies

Craft Supplies:

  • 2 Paper lunch bags
  • Tissue paper or newspaper
  • Glue stick
  • White glue
  • Crayons and/or markers
  • Pompom pink or white
  • 30" piece of ribbon
  • Pink and brown construction paper

Craft Instructions

  1. Trace and cut out feet and ears from brown constructions paper.  Cut two inner ears from pink constructions paper.
  2. With a glue stick, glue the long straight edge of the feet to the bottom of one bag with the rounded part of the feet extending past the edge of the bag.
  3. Gently crinkle tissue paper or newspaper and use it to stuff this paper bag.
  4. Holding the second paper bag upside down, draw a face on the upper half of the bag using markers and/or crayons.  I used a combination of both.  Be sure you draw on the side that does NOT have a flap when the bag is folded.
  5. Draw an oval on the lower half of this bag on the same side as your bunny's face.  This will be the bunny's belly.
  6. Slide the second bag (the one with the face) over the first bag (the stuffed one) and tie the ribbon around the neck area to give your bunny some shape.
  7. Glue the inner ears to the center of the ear pieces with a glue stick.   Then glue the lower edge to the back of the bunny's head as pictured.
  8. With white glue, glue a pompom to the back of the bunny as a tail.

Optional: Glue a bow on top of the head for a girl bunny.

Variation:  Use white or pastel lunch bags instead of brown.  White and colored lunch bags can be found at Oriental Trading as well as many craft and party stores.
