1. First paint your toilet paper rolls white. You may need to do a few coats of paint to get them white. We like to use acrylic paint for painting with white since it cuts down on the number of coats you may need to do.
2. Make the bunny ears by tracing out ears on white cardstock and then making a smaller ear insert with some colored paper of your choice.
3. Glue two small googly eyes to your paper roll.
Then twist three small pipe cleaners around each other and glue this down to the paper roll.
4. Glue a small pom pom on top of the pipe cleaners for the nose.
5. Glue the ears to the inside of the top of your paper roll. Then draw on the mouth with a black sharpie.
Your Easter toilet paper roll bunnies are now complete. These are so easy to make. They are perfect for toddlers and preschoolers to do too. You may just need to help younger children with the gluing part.
Easter Egg Potato Stamping
Did you know you can use a potato as a stamp? They make great customizable stamps because they’re easy to carve, and it’s so much fun to paint them and stamp them. I turned a few potatoes into Easter egg stamps in preparation for the upcoming holiday!
Potato stamps make great kid’s crafts; it’s fun and a little messy and it allows you to be as creative as you want! As long as an adult helps cut up and carve the potatoes, the kids can do all of the rest of the work!
Here’s what you need to make these potato stamps:
chopsticks or bamboo skewers
paper for stamping (or a blank t-shirt, tote bag, tea towel, or anything else you want to stamp!)
Note: Any kind of potato will do, but Russets tend to be more oval shaped, which is perfect for Easter eggs.
1. Parents - Start by cutting your potato in half lengthwise so you end up with two oval halves.
2. The next step is to “carve” out a stamp from the flat surfaces of the potato halves. If you have fancy clay carving tools or rubber stamp carving tools, you can use those for more “advanced” potato stamps. But if you don’t have fancy tools, don’t worry! A knife and a chopstick or a bamboo skewer will do the trick!
3. Using your knife, carefully cut two parallel lines about an eighth of an inch into the potato to make “edges” for your carved line. Then use a chopstick or bamboo skewer to scrape out the “meat” of the potato between the two knife edges. If you scrape carefully, the knife-cut edges will help make clean, sharp lines!
4. Once you have your potato carved out, it’s time to stamp! Using a paintbrush, paint each section of the potato.
5. Then flip the potato over and firmly press it down onto your paper or fabric. Carefully lift up the potato, and you have a stamped Easter egg!
There are tons of designs you can make with these potatoes; the sky is the limit! You can make chevron lines, or stab a chopstick into the potato to make polka dots. You can angle the lines, or if you’re feeling really skilled, make some curvy lines. Be as creative as you want!
The trick is to make sure you get enough paint on the potato to get a good solid stamp out of it, but not so much paint that it squeezes out past the edges of the potato and blurs the lines. But once you’ve carved your potato stamp, you can practice as many times as you need to in order to get it right; just add more paint and try again!
Bunny Keepsake Easter Craft
1. Print out a picture of your child that is about 8 inches tall. When you cut out the face make sure to leave about 1/2-1 inch space in order to have a place to glue cotton balls.
2. Use a kid friendly paint to get 4 of their foot prints. I found it was easiest to lay down a big drop cloth and to just let my toddler get her feet covered in paint and walk across the paper. This is preferably an outdoor activity but if you are stuck inside due to cold weather a drop cloth is a must.
3. Cut out a big oval (the belly) and recruit help to glue cotton balls onto it.
4. Glue the head onto the belly and then glue cotton balls around the edge of the head.
5. Now add your feet and add cotton balls to those if you want. I chose to add them to the feet but not the ears.
If you are looking for the perfect kids Easter craft then you have found it! What is more fun then Bunnifiying your own kiddos?!?! This cotton ball bunny craft is super easy, and the kiddos will love gluing cotton balls on their bunny bodies, not to mention the fun of painting the bottoms of their feet to make the cute bunny paws. These cotton ball bunnies make a wonderful Easter keepsake decoration for years to come. You can look back at how small your baby bunnies once were.
