Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • Poster board paper- Choose white or a light color.
  • Tempera paints
  • Paintbrushes
  • Construction paper
  • Tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Crayons, markers or colored pencils
  • Glitter

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Cut the construction paper into shapes to create an Easter bunny. Ask your child what shape looks like the bunny’s face, what shapes look like the body/legs/arms and what shape looks like the ears. Your child can draw the shapes freehand onto the construction paper or they can use stencils.
  2. Assemble the bunny shapes. Help your child to puzzle together the shapes and create a bunny outline. Glue the shapes onto the poster paper.
  3. Create a face. Now that your child has the basic outline ready, they can add a smiling bunny face. Give your child crayons, markers or colored pencils to draw on the eyes, nose and mouth.
  4. Tear or cut construction paper and tissue paper pieces. Use a variety of colors and help your child to cut out different shapes or sizes.
  5. Glue the paper onto the bunny outline. Your child can overlap the edges and fluff or crumple the tissue to create textures.
  6. Paint the collage. Use temperas and a brush to add a rainbow of colors! Your child can paint over the poster board, construction paper or tissue paper. They can also add designs or a background to the bunny picture.
  7. Sprinkle glitter onto sections of the paint or the glue. Your child can coat entire parts of the picture with the sparkles or use the glitter to highlight specific smaller areas.
