These adorable bunnies are easy to make and they’re a fun activity for the Easter weekend
Follow our step-by-step guide and help the kids make their own Easter bunnies. With soft woollen bodies and little felt ears, these rabbits are as cute as can be.
You will need:
- Card cut into 2 large rings (10cm across) and 2 smaller ones (5cm across) – see templates below
- Scissors – remember to be careful when using scissors and always be supervised by an adult.
- Thick wool yarn
- Dental floss
- Craft glue
- Scraps of felt for ears, eyes and noses in assorted colours
- Cotton wool balls
Trace two small and two large rings onto a piece of card and cut out to make one pompom bunny.
- Make one large and one small pompom. Hold the pair of large rings together and wrap the yarn around them until they are covered.
- Wind the yarn into a long, caterpillar-shape to make passing it through the hole easier.
- The more yarn you use, the fluffier your bunny will be!
- Snip the yarn at the edges of the two rings with scissors
- Open the rings and tie a strand of dental floss between them.
- Gently remove the card rings, fluff up the pompom and trim away any uneven strands
- Repeat with the two small rings.
- Stick the two pompoms together with craft glue and leave to dry.
- Cut out two ear shapes from the felt. Fold in half vertically and secure the fold with glue at the base.
- Stick the ears onto the small pompom with glue.
- Cut small felt circles for the eyes and nose and glue in place. Tear some cotton off the cotton wool balls, roll into a tail and glue in place.
