Chicks & Bunnies ~ a Simple Easter Craft

I have a fun and easy Easter craft for you and the kids!
This craft is quick and fun.  Make these little bunnies and chicks to decorate for Easter, as party favors, class goodies to share, or even something special to tuck in your child's Easter Basket.


Aren't they cute?


And even more fun... they hold little treats!


Supplies Needed:
-  Plastic Easter Eggs
-  Craft Foam (I used blue, pink and yellow... I needed orange, but card stock did the trick!)
-  Googly Eyes
-  PomPoms (for bunny tail)
-  String or Embroidery Floss (for bunny whiskers)
-  Feathers (for the chick)
-  Glue (I used hot glue)

I'm assuming these are pretty easy to figure out without me going into detail.  However, perhaps that is not the case!  If you have any questions, or need me to post more detail, let me know!  Otherwise... here are some photos to explain.  :)

 The Bunny


The Chick

The Sneaky Child!


I love them!  Can't wait to make these with the kids this afternoon.
Enjoy!

  3. Do you have a template for the foam parts? I could probably make one myself but just wondered if I was missing something. Thanks!

  4. Thanks everyone! Patti, sorry, I did not include a template for the pieces. I just cut them out by hand. I am sure you could draw some up fairly easily though. They don't necessarily need to be like those I made either. You just need something to stabilize the egg a bit. For the chick, you could make a base to glue it to and add the feet to that. I just made one piece to omit a step. :) Hope that helps!

  9. Oh, I adore these! As I have got a very sweet tooth I can`t have them as Easter decorations :D (Well I can but without sweets). They would also make lovely little presents to give to friends at Easter time.
