Easter Bunny Craft for kids

Hi everyone!

Easter is just around the corner! Yay!

One of my family’s favourite Easter traditions is decorating Easter eggs. First, we hardboil the eggs and let them cool, then add some vinegar and food colouring to a bowl of water, and (try to) wait patiently while the egg shells soak and take on deep shades of colour.

But what to do with the extra egg cartons that accumulate?

How about up-cycling the egg cartons into fun Easter bunnies!

These bunnies are perfect to use as Easter decorations around the house and make great gifts for teachers, friends and family.

Let’s get started!
