He might beg for eggs, but he’s mighty cute! Here’s a kid’s easter craft idea, showing how to take a run-of-the-mill egg carton and turn it into an adorable bunny, complete with pearly-white chompers!
Perfect for staving off the Easter excitement just a little longer is this fabulous (and super easy) kids’ Easter craft idea thanks Sunny Queen Australia using the humble, every-day egg carton. There’s nothing particularly fancy required, just household items and a touch of patience!
There’s nothing left to do but hop, hop, hop straight into it!
Easter Craft For Kids: Egg Carton Beggs Bunny
- Sunny Queen Organic Egg cartons
- Black marker
- Pink and white coloured paper or card, or colour your own
STEP 1. Cut the ends off the carton base.
STEP 2. Cut these in half so you have two identical cups.
STEP 3. Cut the longer sections so they are level with the rest of the cup.
STEP 4. Place one on top of the other, aligning the gaps. Place some tape in the section between the gaps, both inside and outside.
STEP 5. Cut the shapes for the outer ears (x2); inner ears (x2); feet (x2); and teeth (x1). Allow enough length on the shapes for gluing or fold an edge/flap. Cut an extra strip of paper.
STEP 6. Glue ears, feet and teeth in place. Draw on the eyes, nose (or use pom poms) and whiskers. Line the inside with a strip of paper to close any gaps then fill with mini Easter eggs!
There you have it, your very own Beggy Bunny to show off! The colour of your egg carton determines the colour of your bunny, so if you (or the kids) want to get fancy with this spectacular kids’ Easter craft idea, go to town painting or decorating the egg carton before transforming it. Your bunny will certainly be unique!
