An Easter Craft: Bunnies and Chicks Made from Plastic Eggs

1-Easter Egg Craft Bunnies and Chicks-002 Yes, I know Easter isn’t about bunnies and chicks. We definitely teach our children about the real meaning of Easter. It’s really right there with Christmas in importance. We celebrate that Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins. We really celebrate that he rose three days later because that is the proof we base our faith on and the hope we have in Him. I will be doing activities that demonstrate these important truths. However, today we celebrated spring and new life with a cute Easter craft. These bunnies and chicks are made out of plastic eggs and decorated with google eyes, marker, foam pieces and pipe cleaners. They sit in little cut up egg carton pieces. They can be put into Easter baskets, used as decorations or would be really cute for place holders. You can fill them with candy.

The top of the egg has a natural hole. I discovered this when we did our egg pops last year. There’s a good visual on how to poke this hole out and then make it bigger with a piping tip or some other tool on that post.

To make the chick hair, cut the pipe cleaner into thirds. Twist the bottom together. You will insert the twisted part into the hole on top of your egg. Once through the hole, you can bunch it into a knot to keep it in place.
