Easter is fast approaching 🍫 why not try this fun Easter craft activity to keep little hands busy when the Easter egg hunt is over!
1- Download and print the patterned template, or print the plain template to colour yourself!
2- To make your Easter bunnies, you will need:
Tip : How to empty an egg to decorate it?
- Wash the egg so that it is clean and the carefully dry it
- Pierce the 2 ends of the egg with a needle (pierce the shell)
- At one end, you have to enlarge the hole: turn the needle to widen it
- Hold the egg over a bowl and blow through the widest hole to remove the yolk and white. Wash the egg gently and let it dry before decorating
3- After downloading the patterns, colour the different elements that will be used to create your bunnies.
You can also use the already coloured pattern.
4- Cut out the different elements.
5- Then add a dot of glue to the end of the bunny’s ears, then stick them behind the strip of your choice.
Leave a space of about 1 cm or 1.5 cm between the 2 ears.
6- You can now glue both ends of the strip together.
Tip: Use the egg to measure the correct diameter.
Repeat these steps for the different designs.
