Cute Paper Plate Bunny Craft [Free Template]

This paper plate bunny craft is the perfect craft idea for spring! We love creating easy Easter crafts for kids so we knew we had to add a rabbit to our collection.

We wanted to be able to use this craft not only for Easter, but also for other times of the year so we painted it two different colors.

The first one is gray and represents the more natural coloring of the rabbit and the other is a light blue that’s so adorable for Easter!

Like usual, we’ve included a free printable template so you can easily recreate this craft with your kids or students. Read on below or watch our quick video tutorial to see how simple this craft is to make!

Paint two paper plates and let dry completely. One paper plate will be for the bunny’s face and the other will be to cut out the ears.

We painted one bunny gray to look more natural and one bunny light blue.

The gray bunny is perfect when you’re learning about bunnies or animals and you want a more realistic craft. The blue bunny is great for making it for Easter!

Place the two rabbit’s eyes and glue them a little bit from the top of the paper plate.

Glue the pink nose at the top of the black line. If you want, you can also use a pink marker to draw on the nose instead.

Place the pink cheek’s on either side of the muzzle.

Use the marker to draw on some cute and simple eyebrows above the eyes.

Trace the bunny ear template onto the second paper plate and cut them out. Glue the pink inner ears onto the blue outer ears, then glue the completed ears to the back of the paper plate.

Take your three white pipe cleaners and twist them together. Use a glue dot or glue stick to glue the whiskers just below the bunny’s nose. We always use a glue dot because they’re stronger than the glue stick and because there’s no drying time!
