materials for Paper Plate Bunny Craft:
- Paper plate
- Gray washable kids paint (I’ve mixed white and black together)
- Foam paintbrush
- Felt (pink, gray)
- Pipecleaners (assorted colors)
- Hot glue gun + glue sticks
- Permanent marker
- Craft scissors
- Begin by prepping a few of the materials ahead of time. This will only take 5 minutes. Place a bit of the gray paint onto a paper plate and set the foam paintbrush beside.
- Cut long ears out of the gray felt. They don’t have to be perfect!
- Cut a small heart out of the pink felt for the nose.
- Allow the kids to paint the paper plate with the gray paint, let dry.
- Hot glue the ears to the back of the paper plate. HOT GLUE GUN SHOULD BE USED BY THE ADULT!
- Once the paint is dry, use the hot glue gun to glue the 2 pipecleaners (bent, for the whiskers).
- Hot glue the heart for the nose, right on top of the whiskers.
- Using the permanent marker, draw a simple face for the bunny (I suggest this step for the adults as well, unless using a washable marker)
