I grew up in an area that had a lot of bunny rabbits hopping around. While I don’t see as many these days, living out in more of a city environment, I still get excited on the rare times I do. And Easter bunny crafts are an especially fun, and appropriate, way to spend an afternoon this time of year. They’re just so cute. With their wiggly little noses, an abundance of ears, and those puffy cotton tails. The cotton tails are what we’re inspired by today with this adorable Cotton Tail Bunny Behinds Easter Craft!
This is a really simple and oh so cute Easter bunny craft that starts with dessert-size paper plates. Leave one whole, the other cut off the outside ring so it’s smaller for the bunny’s head. Glue those together, along with ears and bunny feet cut freehand from white cardstock. Then, add some colorful pastel cotton balls for the bunny’s tail on your Cotton Tail Bunny Behinds!
Let’s face it, kids get a kick out of anything that has to do with behinds. These Cotton Tail Bunny Behinds are bound to be a hit! A bound and a hop, hop, hoppity, hop!
- dessert-size paper plates
- white cardstock
- cotton balls in assorted pastel, Easter colors
First, you’ll need 2 dessert-size paper plates. Leave one whole for the body and trim the outside ring around the other for the bunny’s head. Flip the whole plate so the bottom is now the slightly raised top. Apply a line of glue around the top ring and adhere the trimmed plate to the whole plate.
Cut 2 bunny ears out of white cardstock, slightly rounding off the tips. Also cut two circular shapes for the feet. This can be done freehand. Glue the ears to the back of the bunny’s head. Glue the feet to the back of the bottom of the body.
Finally, take your choice of color of cotton balls and make your bunny’s tail. We used 5 cotton balls for each of ours, 4 in a ring around the plate and then 1 on top of the 4 so it’s kind of raised up and sticking out. Like a bunny tail!
