Bunny Rabbit Ears

Creating bunny rabbit ears with your little one is another great way to celebrate the Easter Holiday. This is also an inexpensive way to have some creative fun and let loose!

Below, you will find the detailed instructions on how create the bunny ears.

bunny

rabbit

Materials:

  • paper
  • tape
  • scissors

Instructions:

  • Make a strip of paper long enough to go around the child’s head (you may need to tape to pieces end to end to get it long enough.  You can make it thinner than we did, but my girls like the thick ones (they don’t tear as easily and ride a bit higher on the head like a crown)
  • Print, color and cut out the ears
  • Tape the ears onto the strip
  • OPTIONAL:  Decorate the strip with stickers/markers/etc as desired
  • Tape the strip in a loop so it fits on the head
  • Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
  • Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).

Dying Eggs for Easter?

If so you are in the right place. I’ve compiled a list of awesome methods on how to decorate your easter eggs.

Basic Instructions on how to dye Easter eggs

1. Set out a cup or bowl for each color. They must be deep enough to accommodate eggs.

2. Cut an empty paper towel roll into sections; you’ll set your finished eggs on them to dry.

3. Scoop a gob of paste-type food coloring (found in the cake decorating section of craft stores) out of the container with a toothpick.

4. Stir it into a cup or bowl with 1 c. very hot water until it’s dissolved.

5. Add 1/4 c. white vinegar.

6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 for the various colors.

7. Place the dyed eggs on the egg holders to dry.

8. lace the dyed eggs on the egg holders to dry.

 

Sticker Easter Eggs
Materials:

Directions:

  • Mix dye according to package directions
  • apply small, simple stickers to the eggs (dots work well).
    Make sure you push the stickers down firmly.
  • Dye egg as normal.
  • Don’t forget that you can double dip your eggs into a variety of different colors, before or after you remove the stickers.

Marbleized Easter Eggs
Materials:

Directions:

  • Mix dye according to package directions
  • Add 1 Tbsp vegetable oil to each color you want to marbleize
  • Dye eggs as directed on dye package
  • When you remove the eggs, the oil will have caused a very nifty marbleized effect

Crayon Decorated Easter Eggs
Materials:

  • hard boiled egg(s)
  • wax crayons (the waxier the better… in this case cheap crayons are better than crayolas)
  • Easter Egg dye:  store bought dye or home made

Directions:

  • Draw pictures or designs with wax crayon.  Even white wax crayon will be useful for this project.
  • Dip in dye.
  • Let dry.
  • The dye won’t soak through the crayon!  I find cheap crayons work best for this project (crayolas don’t have quite enough wax in them though they do work ok).
  • An adult may need to help hold the egg while the child draws their pictures on it… at least the first time until they get the hang of it.


“Have fun and enjoy your family this easter”
