Directions to Make an Egg Carton Bunny – Easter Craft for Kids
1. Begin by cutting 2 egg compartments and trimming off any excess to create a flat top to the cartons.
2. Place the trimmed egg cartons on top of each other with the flat tops touching. Take a piece of masking tape and put a small piece on the back of the cartons.
Then open up the egg carton and place another piece of masking tape on the inside.
3. Paint the egg cartons a spring color. We love these baby blue, yellow and pink paint colors that match the mini eggs!
4. Cut 2 bunny ear shapes out of the foam.
5. Once the paint has dried, add the eyes and pink pom pom for the nose with glue.
Glue on the ears as well. Take a thick black marker and add whiskers and eyelashes if desired.
Now fill with candy and enjoy! These would be cute to put up for your Easter Egg hunt or as decoration on a table for Easter dinner!
