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.


  1. thats such a cute idea!! man i wish i still worked in a preschool so i could use some of these ideas!!

  2. Way too cute!! I'm going to pass this along to my 2nd grade teacher daughter. :)

  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!

  5. This is great I found you thru the UBP and needless to say I'm following now. I absolutely love this idea and I know my boys will enjoy making them. Thank you, I will post pictures on my blog when I do them and link them back to you.

  6. Love it!

    I did a for the kids friday (linked) post about community service. Just an FYI :-)

  7. What a great blog! I am a home-school mom in her first year and this just might have to be one of my craft resources! These Easter crafts are super cute! Stopping by for the party!


  8. Those are super cute and would make fun table decorations for Easter.

  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.

  10. Very darling idea! I hope I get a chance to make these for my little ones. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your kind comments. I am getting ready to link up my printable Birthday Journaling & Coloring Page to your "For The Kids Friday".
    Take care,
