Easter Egg Bunny


Why not add some egg-citement to your Easter egg decorating this year by creating an egg bunny? They are perfect fun-filled breakfast idea.

What you'll need:

  • Hard-boiled egg dyed pink
  • 2 medium wiggle eyes
  • 2 medium white pom-poms
  • 2 medium pink pom-poms (optional)
  • 7 miniature pink pom-poms
  • ¼ of a cardboard tube
  • Pink paint
  • 3" x 3" piece of pink construction paper
  • Glue stick
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors

How to make it:

Dye hard-boiled egg pink, according to the instructions on the dye package.

Paint the cardboard tube pink and set aside to dry.

Place pink egg in the cardboard tube.

Cut two long ears from pink construction paper. Glue the bottom of both ears onto the back of the egg. 


Use white craft glue to attach wiggle eyes to the front of the egg. 


Below the eyes, glue two white pom-poms next to each other to make the bunny's cheeks. Just above the two white pom-poms, glue one of the miniature pink pom-poms to make the nose. 


Lift the egg out of the cardboard tube and lay it onto its back on the cardboard tube. Allow the glue to dry. 


To make the feet, cut an oval from the pink paper, about 1.5" high x .75" wide. Cut the oval in half width-wise.

Glue three miniature pom-poms to the curve of each foot. 


After egg has dried, set it on a towel while you glue the feet to the front of the cardboard tube. Place the egg back in the tube upright. 

OPTIONAL: You can also glue two additional medium-sized pink pom-poms on either side of the bunny to make paws.

Tips:

  1. Instead of a boiled egg, use a plastic egg.
  2. You can make a tube yourself out of construction paper to eliminate the painting step.
  3. For a more simplified foot, skip the miniature pom-poms and draw on the toes with a marker.
