One of the best things about Easter weekend is being able to take some time-out to spend with family and friends (not to mention the excuse to devour a heap of chocolate).  But what happens after the Easter egg hunt is over? And the kids have lost interest in your Easter bunny costume? And even the supply of chocolate eggs is beginning to diminish? It’s time to turn to arts and crafts.

Here at Springfree™ Trampoline we love a good ‘crafternoon’, and have put our heads together to select 3 of the best arts and crafts ideas that you can entertain your family and friends with this weekend (on and off the trampoline).

These bunny puppets are as much fun to make as they are to play with! Here are a few directions on how to get started.

  • White and pink foam or felt
  • Black felt or goggle stick-on eyes
  • A black felt tip
  • Paddle Pop sticks
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors

What to do: Cut out the shape of your bunny head and teeth from the white foam or felt along with black eyes any accessories you want to give them (bow-tie, hair etc.). Don’t forget two thin pink strips for the ears and a pink triangle for the nose. Use the glue to stick the pink strips to the ears, and the nose to the middle of the face. Use the black marker to draw on a smiling mouth and add the accessories of you have them.

Now your bunny is nearly finished, all you have to do is turn it over and glue on a paddle pop stick as a handle.  Use your marker to add any finishing touches such as black buttons down the front of the handle. Thanks to our friends at Micador for the tips!
