Print out our template on cardstock or heavier print paper. You can also use regular paper but will have to laminate your bunny later on.
Color in the bunny. There are many colors you can use, we went with a gray bunny with pink details.
Pastel Easter colors will work out great for this one. If you are making this craft as a school project in the classroom, we can just imagine how wonderful a “rainbow” of colors will look with all the bunnies colored in their own unique way.
Before you cut out the bunny, poke holes (two are marked on the body of the bunny and two on each of the ears).
We used a skewer, younger kids can use plastic needles or have the adult do this part for them.
Cut out the bunny body and the ears.
Assembling the Doll
Next you need to string the thread through the outer holes of the ears.
You can make a “needle” out of cardstock or use kid friendly plastic needles.
Take a brad and push it through the hole on the bunny body, it has to come through on the back side of the design.
Place the bunny ear on top of the body, pushing the brad through the inner hole on the ear. Spread the brad.
You can turn the ear around a few times, and wiggle it a bit to make it more loose.
Repeat with the other ear on the other side.
Stick a craft stick on the back of the bunny body.
The craft stick will make a great handle for your bunny paper doll and will also offer additional stability to your doll.
Tie the string together (it’s best to position the ears are hanging down when you tie the knot).
All done! Now pull the string up and down to make the bunny ears wiggle.
