Easter Bunny Paper Plate Craft
This bunny craft made with a paper plate is so simple and perfect for toddlers or preschoolers to make! Kids can help cut out the bunny ears and do all the gluing. All you need to do is gather the supplies.
We like to keep a supply of googly eyes on hand for all of our crafts so we do recommend you get a multi-pack of those. You can also find multi-packs of pipe cleaners and pom poms which are great since you can use them for so many other crafts!
Here are the supplies needed:
- Construction Paper
- Pom Poms – this multi-pack includes most of the supplies with pom poms, pipe cleaners and googly eyes!
- Pipe Cleaners
- Googly Eyes
- Glue – a tacky glue is stronger and better for gluing on pom poms and pipe cleaners. You can also use hot glue (with adult assistance). Tape can be used to tape the ears behind the paper plate.

Directions to Make a Paper Plate Easter Bunny
1. Make the whiskers.
For the whiskers: take 3 pipe cleaners and twist them around each other in the center so that they are connected/stuck together. The part you twist is the hidden part that will go under the nose (pom pom) and will be hidden. This will leave you with the whiskers sticking out on both sides.
Then glue to the paper plate. Leave time to let dry as this step will require it to be glued well or the pipe cleaners will fall off.
You can also glue with hot glue (which will stay better) with adult assistance.
2. Glue on the pom pom nose.
Once glue is dry from the pipe cleaners, now glue on your nose (pom pom).
3. Make the ears.
For the ears: Cut out some ears from white construction paper or cardstock and then cut out a smaller inside ear with a different color. We chose pink and yellow. Glue both pieces together and then glue or tape to the back of the paper plate.
4. Add the eyes and mouth.
For the eyes: We used googly eyes and just glued them on but you could also use construction paper and make the eyes yourself.
For the mouth: We simply just drew on the mouth with a black marker.
That’s it! This is such a fun and easy Easter craft for kids.
We hope you have fun making this simple and easy paper plate bunny!
