If you have kids who love making things and a fondness for bunnies, this blog is the perfect place for you to be.
All the activities listed below in this blog post have the bunny as the central motif. You can also use these ideas on Easter – where the bunny is a prominent and folkloric symbol associated with the occasion. 🐰🥕
Bunny Activities for Your Kids
These activities help kindle the creativity and boundless imagination of the child. Some of these activities can be saved as keepsakes, used as gifts for family and friends, or decorations in your home.
Children should experience and enjoy the beauty and satisfaction of creating something with their hands. ❤️
I hope you use these activities to keep your kids engaged while also being a source of fun and enjoyment.
Bunny Handprint Art
Let your kids get their hands dirty to create some beautiful keepsakes.
Take a thick piece of paper. Apply paint on your child’s hand and transfer the handprint onto the paper. Decorate the handprint with eyes, ears, nose, and whiskers to make a bunny. ✋🏼
This activity tends to get messy but is worth the effort for the outcome. I have been doing this with my kids since my daughter was born. You can repeat this every year as a tradition that they will cherish as a memory.
Make sure to use baby-safe paints for toddlers!
A craft activity that I use to make matching headbands for my son and daughter.
Cut two pointed ovals and two rectangles from thick paper. Glue the rectangles together to make a band that fits your child’s head. Now, stick the ears to the front of the rectangle to complete the headband. 👑
Bunny Paper Plates
You can make some adorable bunny faces with paper plates at home – this is a simple yet fun activity to make with your kids.
Use the back of the paper plate for the face of the bunny. Glue a pair of googly eyepieces for the eyes, pipe cleaner sticks for the whiskers, and a cotton ball for the nose.
You can use another paper plate to cut a pair of ears to stick behind the plate. Let your kids color the ears and draw the mouth. 🍽️
Bunny Paper Cups
Make some bunny paper cups to match the bunny paper plates you made.
Take a paper cup and let your kids paint it in their favorite colors. Turn the cup upside down; for the face of the bunny, glue the googly eyes, pipe cleaners, and a cotton ball on one side of the cup. For the ears, cut a pair of ovals on paper and stick them behind. 🍶
There are many variations of a bunny that you can create with a simple paper cup. Let your kids play around with different ideas to design their bunnies.
Bunny Paper Plate Mask
Making these masks is not just a fun activity but also acts as a prop to play with.
Cut a paper plate into half and use the back part to design your mask.
Cut two peepholes for the kids’ eyes and use paper shapes for the bunny’s features. 🎭
Bunny Paper Bags
Decorating paper bags for gifts with my son is one of my favorite activities.
Creating a bunny paper bag is simple but adds a lot of charm to an ordinary paper bag. On both sides of a plain colored paper bag, draw the faces of the bunny. Stick two pairs of long paper ears on the insides of the paper bag. 🛍️
Bunny String Art
A piece of art that is easy to make and looks intricate and beautiful.
On a block of wood, trace an outline of a bunny with the help of a template. Hammer the nails along the boundary, spaced at equal distances from each other.
Tie a thread to one of the nails and let your kids wrap it around all the nails on the board as much as they want. 🧵
The first part of this activity requires adult supervision as it involves a hammer and nails. You could keep an eye on them throughout to avoid any accidents.
Bunny Greeting Card
Cut a circle from thick colored paper and fold it to make a semi-circle. Draw or use paper shapes for the eyes, nose, and whiskers. Glue a pair of pointed oval-shaped paper ears behind the card.
Write a heartfelt message inside the card and gift your loved ones! 🎂
Making bunny faces is a great way to decorate plain party balloons.
You can get your kids to make these before their birthdays. Give them markers to draw the features of the bunny’s face. Cut out card stock paper for the ears and glue them to the back of the balloons. 🎈
To elevate the ears more, use two shades of paper for each ear to create a contrast. One color should be smaller than the other to create an outline of the base color when glued together.
Bunny Party Hats
Another fun craft you can make for birthday parties.
Choose a party hat and use paper for the features – two circles for the eyes, a triangle for the nose, thin strips for the whiskers, and two pointed pieces for the ears. Draw a mouth with a marker. 🎉
You can decorate plain party hats for this activity, but if you’re feeling crafty, you could use a template to make the hats. My son and I love making them from scratch with his favorite colors.
Bunny Finger Puppets
Create bunny finger puppets at home, and put on a show for your kids to enjoy.
Glue two circles overlapping each other slightly to form the body. Use googly eyes and a triangle-shaped paper nose.
With a marker, draw the whiskers and mouth. Stick a pair of pointed ears behind the face and punch two holes in the bottom to insert their fingers.🐇
Bunny Silhouette Eggs
Give your eggs a colorful twist by painting and decorating them.
Stick a bunny sticker of your choice on the egg. Color the entire egg around the sticker and then remove it. You could also paint inside the area where the sticker was or leave it empty to make it stand out. 🥚
Bunny Corner Bookmarks
A corner bookmark worthy of bookworms and bunny lovers.
Follow a tutorial to make a simple corner bookmark. Cut tiny bunny ears to stick behind the flap of the bookmark. Ask your kids to add some details to complete it. 🔖
Bunny Paper Clip Bookmarks
My son’s favorite bookmark that he loves making for his friends and teachers.
Draw and detail two bunnies on thick paper. Cut and stick them on either side of the paper clip. Here’s the fun part, loop a thread through the paper clip and glue the other end between two carrots or easter eggs. 🖇️
Bunny Popsicle Stick Bookmarks
Use wooden popsicle sticks to create simple bunny bookmarks.
Paint the stick and draw the eyes, nose, mouth, and whiskers. Add thin paper strips for the ears. Draw some carrots on popsicle sticks to match the bunnies.
Bunny Magnetic Fishing Game
A take on the classic fishing game my son loves, but with bunnies and carrots.
Cut out bunnies and carrots from colored paper, and decorate them. Attach a string with a magnet to one end of a skewer to make a fishing pole.
Add paper clips to the bunnies and carrots to make them stick to the pole’s magnet. Happy fishing! 🎣
Although this is a fun game, just as it is, you can easily make it educational. Set up different games like color identification using the bunnies and carrots to help make learning fun.
A fun and easy painting activity that your kids will love.
Choose a piece of cardboard in a size of your choice. Outline a bunny on the cardboard. Let your kids paint inside the space and get creative with different patterns and colors. 🖼️
Bunny Cake Toppers
An adorable way to decorate your cakes with your child’s art!
Cut out a circle for the bunny faces on thick paper. Attach pairs of paper bunny ears to the back of the faces.
Detail the face with the drawn eyes, nose, and whiskers. Now, glue a toothpick or a skewer behind the face to stick it in the cake. 🍰
If you want to preserve these cake toppers and reduce the chances of them coming in contact with food, you can laminate the paper bunnies and then attach the skewer; this helps you use the cake toppers multiple times.
Bunny Counting Game
Counting numbers has never been this fun and easy. This game helps kids improve their counting along with their recollection skills.
Use a template to cut out bunny-shaped outlines on small pieces of paper. Number the bunny pieces from 1 to 10 and use them to help kids count and recall numbers. 🔢
Bunny Alphabet Game
My son played this game to learn and recognize the letters of the alphabet.
Use a template to cut out 26 bunny-shaped outlines on small pieces of paper. Write the letters individually on each bunny. Use the bunny pieces for literary games to identify and arrange the letters and form words. 🔡
Bunny Number Hop Game
Playing this game can help kids recognize and recall numbers and improve their counting skills.
Stick carrots numbered up to ten on a piece of paper. Cut out a bunny, and stick a wooden clip to hold it.
The kids hop their bunny to the carrot of the numbers you want them to recognize. Hop the bunny twice for double digits. 🥕
This game can be altered in many ways to suit different counting methods with the bunny. Let the bunny jump on a carrot and ask the child to identify it. Add or subtract two dice and move the bunny to the final result.
Bunny Shape Game
This activity is a fun and easy way to help kids identify shapes and learn their names.
Cut out the faces of the bunnies and carrots in different shapes – square, triangle, oval, rectangle, and so on.
Get the kids to identify and sort similar shapes of bunnies and carrots together. Try this with as many shapes and forms as you wish to do. ⭕️
Bunny Coloring Sheets
If your kids love coloring, you can download and print coloring sheets of bunny outlines for them to color.
It is an easy activity to keep them engaged and teaches them how to exercise control and color within the lines. 🎨
Letting loose and coloring without restrictions and lines is also good!
Bunny Pen Stand
To do this activity, choose a thick metal or plastic cup suitable for a pen stand. Paint the cup and draw out the details of the face with a marker. Cut bunny ears from cardboard and stick them inside the cup.
A perfect addition to the children’s study desk! 🖋️
For two joint pen stands, use a painted cardboard base. On the edge of the cardboard, glue the cups next to each other. Detail the bunny’s features and stick one ear to each cup.
Bunny Birthday Bunting
Birthday parties are usually incomplete without banners. Make some at home as a fun activity with your kids.
Print a bunny outline and cut as many as you need to make a party bunting. Color each bunny in preferred colors and write the letters of the message individually on the pieces. Tie a string through all the bunnies to make a birthday bunting. 🎊
Bunny and Carrot Garlands
Making these is fun and doubles as a coloring activity and a decor piece.
Cut out bunny and carrot outlines on pieces of paper. Engage your kids in coloring these outlines with their favorite colors. Glue them in a pattern of choice on a string to make a garland.
Bunny Christmas Ornaments
Add a personalized touch to your Christmas tree with bunny ornaments that are easy to make at home.
You could use a template to outline the bunny on thick paper and then color and decorate it. Write some messages and season’s greetings to add to the tree, and include the initials of the family members on individual bunnies. Punch a hole and tie a ribbon to finish. 🎄
Bunny Clothespin Photo Holder
Display special moments of your kids with a photo holder rather than the usual frames.
Make a small paper bunny with a circle for the face and pointed ovals for the ears; draw the features on the face using a pen. Glue the bunny’s face to one side of the clothespin.
To make a photo holder, glue a skewer to the bottom portion of the other side of the clothespin and stick it into a cork bottle stopper. You can also add more photo holders using a wide cork piece. 📷
Bunny Paper Ear Hairbands
My son and I enjoy making these for my daughter, who loves bunnies.
Take a simple and thin hairband for this activity.
Cut out an outline of pointed oval-shaped ears on thick paper and color them. Glue the ears to the hairband to add bunny ears to the person wearing it. Make these in different colors to match the kid’s outfits. 🎀
Bunny Toilet Roll Stamps
Save empty toilet paper rolls to make some adorable bunny stamps with kids.
Use three empty toilet paper rolls to create the bunny stamp. Use one roll for the face and shape the two rolls into a marquis for the ears.
Tape the paper rolls together to create an outline of the bunny, dip this in paint, and stamp on a piece of paper. Add details to the stamped bunny with a pen. 💮
Bunny Mason Jars
Elevate plain mason jars into adorable bunny-themed ones.
Paste stickers of a bunny outline wherever you want on the mason jar. Color the mason jar with acrylic paint, leaving the stickers on. Peel the stickers after coloring to create bunny silhouettes on the mason jar.
My son and I make these to add on gift boxes and as an ornament for our Christmas tree.
Glue together sections of paper folded like an origami fan to form a circular rosette. Stick a circle in the middle of the bunny with drawn details for the face. Now, tuck a pair of paper ovals behind it for the ears. Add a string to turn it into an ornament. 🏵️
Bunny Paper Treat Bags
Amp up your paper treat bags with some adorable bunny faces.
Mark a point within a few inches from the top of the paper bag and cut a curved “V” shape towards the middle.
Fill the paper bag with the treats. Tie some twine to turn the cut into bunny ears. Draw the features to make a bunny face. 🍬
I love doing these activities with my son and daughter, and we have a lot of fun making them. We make these occasionally to gift to our friends and family.
