Digital News Report – There are some fun Easter Bunny themes arts and crafts projects that can be completed with kids for the upcoming weekend. Here are some projects to get your creativity fired up for the holiday. These are just a few of the many ideas out there.
Easter Bunny Crafts for Kids
Making an Easter Bunny from a paper plate is relatively simple project that is accomplished by most kids with a little help from an adult. The best paper plates to use are the ones that are not to thick and have the crinkled edges. Some projects are instructions on how to turn them into a bunny mask, while others are to be hung on the wall. You can use the back of the plate to and make a face and glue on googley eyes, a black pompom for the nose, and pipe cleaners for the whiskers. Draw with a black marker the line from the nose and the mouth. Take another two more plates and cut out the shape of one ear, then use that ear to trace out the second ear and then cut the second ear out. Take a sheet of pink construction paper or use crayons to color in the pink part of the ear that doesn’t have fur. Glue the ears onto the face of the rabbit. If you want you can glue cotton balls all over to make it look furry.
There is many toilet paper tube craft projects for each holiday for kids to assemble. I really enjoyed this unique craft project using toilet paper tubes as it is unique and truly crafty. The instructions are at http://childmadetutorials.blogspot.com/2011/02/paper-roll-easter-bunny.html . I think an adult would have to help quite a bit with this one, but this is a cute Easter bunny toilet paper tube craft.

Felt Easter Bunny ears that you can put on a baby, a toddler or even your pet dog. They are so cute. The pattern and instructions use felt for the project. There is also a hot glue gun involved with the assembly. To make the felt stiff you can use a starch spray. http://factorydirectcraft.com/factorydirectcraft_blog/easter-craft-felt-bunny-ears/

Ok, there are other things to Easter beside a bunny. I had to mention what Woman’s Day magazine online has put together a nice collection of craft projects.
