How to make paper plate crafts for bunny

What you need:

  • drag
  • glue
  • two sheets of paper
  • White paper
  • pink paper
  • black marker
  • white chalk marker (optional)

Step-by-step instructions

You can leave the paper plate as is because many bunnies are white. You can also let your child draw on a paper plate (all the colors are beautiful).

Step 1

If you have a paper punch, punch out a series of white circles (especially useful if your child draws on the sheets). These circles will be used to make the eyes.

Cut a triangle or oval from pink paper to make the bunny’s nose.

Glue the eyes and nose onto the paper.

Step 2

Make eyes with a black marker.

Step 3

Let the children draw their mouths too!

Step 4

You can also have your child draw white spots inside the eyes.

Step 5

Now it’s time to create those adorable bunny ears!

You can cut out parts of the ear using colored paper or you can let your child draw the pink part directly on the paper plate.

Step 6

Either way, it will look perfect.

Step 7

Take another paper plate and cut it in half (and trim a little). These will be the bunny’s ears.

Step 8

Have your child glue pink ear shapes on top of each half.

Step 9

Then glue the entire rabbit ear to the back of the rabbit’s head.

Step 10

Your paper plate bunny now has the sweetest ears.

Step 11

With the bunny’s face and ears ready, kids are free to add some final touches (they can use crayons to draw the whiskers).

You can use colored cardstock instead of a second paper plate to make the bunny ears. Although making a white bunny is very simple, we think colored bunnies look even cuter.
