Egg Carton Bunny: a great Easter craft to do with your kids and their friends.

This post is brought to you my Plaid. All opinions are mine.

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved to be crafty.  It’s something my Mom and Grandma did together and something they did with me.  I remember many days coloring at my grandmas dining room table or my Mom teaching me some Tole Painting techniques.  Now that I have children of my own, I love being able to make special memories with them while we craft, because isn’t that the best part–making memories and spending quality time with the ones you love? I just love watching my boys being imaginative as they craft their own creations.   

In celebration of Easter soon approaching we decided to create a fun and simple egg carton bunny craft.  We used some of our favorite colors in Plaid’s Apple Barrel® paint.

We love Apple Barrel paint because not only is it readily available in most craft stores and Walmart, it’s also water-based and non-toxic which is important when crafting with children. One way I like to help keep paint messes to a minimum is placing the paint in a few layers of cupcake liners.  When the kids are done painting just simply throw the cupcake liners away. This is great when working with a group of children as well as they can each have their own cupcake liner of paint.

Begin by having your children paint the inside and outside of their egg carton pieces in their desired colors. My kids loved this part and had a blast. Allow the egg carton pieces to fully dry.

Let your kids be creative with their painting.  Allow them to paint the bunnies into multiple colors, in a marbled effect or more.

Once your egg carton pieces are dry, attach them together by securing them with a piece of tape on the inside of the two egg cartons. Attach two paper ears to the back of the egg carton with either tape or craft glue.  Draw on a bunny face with sharpie markers and lastly fill the egg carton bunnies with some of your favorite Easter candy such as jelly beans!  These little bunnies would make a great Easter school craft or a craft to do with your childrens friends at a Easter Egg Hunt party!  Whether you do these with just your children or a group remember to just have fun and watch their creativity soar.
