Easter crafts for kids:how to make the bunny bears chocolate eggs
Try to use only recycled materials to educate children about recycling. Here's what you need:
- toilet paper roll
- recovery cardboard (for ears, legs, tail);
- vinyl glue;
- white tempera color;
- wadding (optional);
- a lot of creativity.
If you want bigger Easter bunnies, you can replace the toilet paper roll holder with tetra packs of milk and fruit juices, which you will have to cut in half.
In the photo above, the bodies of two Easter bunnies made from tetrapak packaging are shown.
How to make the bunny bears chocolate eggs
1) From the recycled cardboard, draw and cut out the rabbit's head, ears, tail and legs.
2) With the vinyl glue, glue the rabbit's head, legs, tail, to the roll.
3) Next, glue small pieces of newsprint on the rabbit's body, particularly at the base (to support the eggs).
4) If you create the effect of fur, just glue the paper irregularly, so as to form small reliefs and ripples.
5) Once dry, paint everything with a white tempera color.
With a felt-tip pen, draw the nose, eyes and whiskers (to make a soft bunny, you can glue some cotton wool all over the bunny's body).
Here the Easter bunny is ready to be filled with chocolate eggs; it can also be used as a placeholder at the table.
