How to Make the Paper Plate Bunny Craft

What you need:

  • scissors
  • glue
  • two paper plates
  • white paper
  • pink color paper
  • black marker
  • white chalk marker (optional)

Step by Step Tutorial

You can leave the paper plate as is, as many bunnies are white. You can also have the kids paint the paper plates (all colors work our great).

Step 1

If you have a paper punch, punch out a bunch of white circles (especially handy if your kids painted the paper plates). These circles will be used to make the eyes.

Cut out a triangle or oval shape from the pink paper for the bunny’s nose.

Glue the eyes and nose onto the paper plate.

Step 2

Make the eyes with the black marker.

Step 3

Have the kids draw the mouth, too!

Step 4

You can also have the kids draw white spots inside the eyes.

Step 5

Now it’s time to create those adorable bunny ears!

You can cut parts of the ears out of colored paper, or you can have the kids paint the pink part on the paper plate directly.

Step 6

It will look perfect either way.

Step 7

Grab another paper plate and cut it in half (and trim a little). These will be the bunny’s ears.

Step 8

Have your child glue the pink ear shapes onto the top of each half.

Step 9

Then, glue the entire bunny’s earbehind the bunny’s head.

Step 10

Your paper plate bunny now has the sweetest ears.

Step 11

With the bunny’s face and ears all in place, kids can optionally add some final touches (they could use colored markers to draw whiskers).

You can use colored cardstock instead of second paper plate to make the bunny ears as well. While the white bunny is simple to make, we think colored ones look even cuter.

You can also accessorize the bunnies by adding bows or flowers to their ears.
