Or Follow These Step by Step Instructions

Start by cutting out the templates. We are showing you how to make the pink bunny – you will also find a blue bunny that is made in the same way and a chick.

We used regular print paper to make these.

Fold the square in half, as shown on the photo bellow. Unfold and fold in half again on the other side. This will make folding this cootie catcher easier.

Position the paper so that the white side of the paper is facing towards you.  Start folding the corners towards the middle as shown on the image bellow.

Fold all for corners.

Flip the soon to be Easter cootie catcher so that the white side is again faced towards you. Fold the corners towards the middle again.

Repeat with all 4 corners.

Fold in half – the side that was facing towards you is on the inside.

There should be four small squares that are formed and are open at the corners. With your fingers, pull these outwards, and the center should fold inwards a bit. You should now get a cootie catcher shape.

Cut the eats and the paws. Use glue stick and glue them onto right places.

Your cootie catcher is now complete! Add a blue bunny and a chick and you have a lovely set of Easter cootie catchers!

  1. How do I download the printable easter bunny cooty catcher template? It doesn’t want to download.

    • Hi! Sometimes “hiccups” happen and the file might be temporarily unavailable. Refreshing the page usually does the trick or trying again at a later time.
