Looking for an easy Easter craft for younger kids and toddlers? Popsicle Stick Bunnies For Kids are fun Easter basket stuffers and kids of any age can participate in making homemade Easter crafts. Make one, make a few or use the dollar store to make Easter bunnies for a group.
Popsicle Stick Bunnies can be made the traditional way with pink and white. But any color can work to make this bunny craft.
We ha so much fun making bunnies that we also used Jumbo colored popsicle sticks to make a larger bunny and made a popsicle stick fence to keep our bunnies safe!
How To Make A Large Popsicle Stick Bunny
11 (ish!) Popsicle or craft sticks
Medium pom pom, white
Craft glue (I use my favorite Weldbond)
For the big popsicle stick bunnies I used 11 popsicle sticks, but any number works. The number of popsicle sticks used to make the base of the bunny head will determine its’ size.
Two popsicle sticks will always be needed to make the base. The width of the popsicle or craft sticks used does not matter for this Easter craft for toddlers or kids and adults of any age.
- Lay out two popsicle sticks horizontally. These popsicle crossbars will be the base of the bunny.
- Lay out the popsicle sticks vertically across the two crossbars.
- This will give you an idea of how many popsicle sticks are needed and how close to glue the popsicle sticks together.
- Glue the sticks across the crossbars. To save time, simply line each crossbar across with glue and then glue the vertical popsicle sticks one by one across. I use Weldbond glue as the glue is non toxic, friendly to children and dries clear.
- Let the dry.
- While the body of the bunnies are drying, cut out the white bunny ears and the pink interior of the ears.
- Glue the pink inside the white bunny ears.
- Attach the ears to the back of the popsicle stick bunny.
- Cut out whiskers from black foam paper.
- Place (without gluing) the two googly eyes and the pom pom for the nose on the bunny.
- Mark with pencil a small dot to indicate where the pom pom for the nose will be glued.
- Glue the two eyes.
- Glue the whiskers to the area of the marked dot.
- Now glue the pom pom as the nose.
How To Make A Small Popsicle Stick Bunny
The small popsicle stick bunny can be made with two popsicle sticks and the same materials as used above except with smaller googly eyes and a touch more time cutting foam paper.
Either project is a quick and easy Easter craft for kids or grandchildren and the materials are economical and easy to find.
Learn how here and you are on the way to making two versions of Popsicle Stick Bunnies!
How To Make A Popsicle Stick Fence
9 Jumbo Popsicle Sticks (any color)
Craft glue (I use my favorite Weldbond) or a glue gun
- Lay two popsicle sticks horizontally on a flat surface.
- Space the sticks about four inches apart. The sticks will be the base of the fence.
- Line 7 sticks vertically across and on top of the fence base.
- Position the sticks.
- Glue each stick to each fence popsicle stick base (two dabs of glue, one for each post)
- Let dry. If using the glue gun, the glue will dry immediately. If using craft glue allow 10 minutes for the fence to dry.
- Glue the popsicle stick bunnies behind the fence with the bunny heads peeking over the top of the fence.
