Easter bunny craft #1: rabbit mask
Here’s an idea from my colleague Lesley, which we used at creche this week.
Cut out a rabbit face shape from a piece of card, with lovely big bunny ears. Provide pink noses and ear shapes, black wool for whiskers and black pens or pencils for drawing on eyes. Invite the children to glue, stick and draw to make their own bunny rabbit craft. You could turn this into a mask too – punch eye holes and attach an elastic thread at the sides and the children can wear their creations.
It’s good to remember that kids crafts don’t all have to turn out to be ’perfect’. Even if you offer the children the same basic materials it’s great to encourage them to make their own mark, use their imagination and create their own take on an Easter bunny. At creche this week, some children wanted to stick, stick, stick – and others want to draw. Some enjoyed the process of spreading the glue and placing the materials in ‘alternative’ locations! Others were very particular about making their Easter craft looks as much like a real bunny as they could. One child sat for a whole hour adding lots of detailed extras around their bunny – carrots to eat, baby bunnies under ground, lots of kisses and decorations.
