Hopping Easter Bunny Kids Craft

I’m not sure there’s much about Easter that kids don’t love – fluffy bunnies, cute chicks, pretty flowers, and of course, Easter eggs! The true meaning of the holiday is not lost on me, either, but I know that kids really enjoy all the pretty colors and fun of Easter. Because of that, I wanted to make a fun, but easy Easter craft for kids. I would never consider myself a crafty person, but this Easter craft is simple enough and requires few materials. Plus, it makes a really cute table-top decoration or a fun puppet the kids can play with!

Materials Needed for Hopping Easter Bunny Kids Craft

Materials needed:

  • White paper, either construction or copy paper works
  • Color construction paper, various pieces of your choice
  • Toilet paper roll
  • Cotton ball
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Markers

How to Make a Hopping Easter Bunny (Kids Craft)


  1. Cover the toilet paper roll with white paper.
  2. Using the bunny ear and feet template, cut out your bunny ears, bunny feet, and bowtie (if desired). You can also draw your own bunny parts, if you prefer.
  3. Trace your bunny ears, feet, and bowtie onto whichever color paper you would like for each. I chose to keep the inner ear white against a color outer ear, but that was just my preference.
  4. Cut out your bunny parts and glue onto the toilet paper roll. Glue the ears onto the inner front side of the roll. You’ll also need to fold the bunny feet along the dotted line, and glue just the tab, so the leg folds out.
  5. Draw a bunny face using markers.
  6. Glue a cotton ball on the backside for a tail.
  7. That’s it! Make a few bunnies to create a cute centerpiece for a table, decorate around the house, or for the kids to play with as puppets!
