Little bunny, hopping through the forest…. It’s almost that time of year and if your kids are home from school you might need something to keep them busy. Now, how can you keep the kids busy without breaking the bank!
Popsicle Stick Bunnies
Popsicle Stick Bunnies Supplies
You’ll need to pick up a few simple craft supplies to make these adorable Popsicle stick bunnies not just for Easter but any time of year
You will need:
- Craft foam sheets or craft felt sheets
- Google eyes
- Small (regular sized) popsicle sticks
- White acrylic paint
- Tape or Glue Dots
Popsicle Stick Bunnies Directions
Step 1: You will want to get 2-3 (however wide you want your bunny) Popsicle sticks and tape them together on the back. You can then paint the sticks all at once, white.
Step 2: Cut all foam or felt pieces as seen above. All shapes are free handed so don’t worry about it being perfect. You’ll then want to put all the pink pieces on top of the white pieces they go with (as seen in the main complete image)
Step 3: Place a small piece of tape or glue dot on the top bottom part of the ears and adhere them to the backside of the Popsicle sticks to make the ears of the bunny.
Step 4: When applying the “nose” section you can place it as all one piece on the Popsicle sticks and if you make the two stick ones the nose circles will hang over the sides.
Step 5: The feet will go side by side on the Popsicle sticks.
Step 6: Saving the google eyes for last always seems easier but you can really do it whenever you want to in the process. Then your little bunnies are perfect and ready to go for Easter or just a stroll through the Easter candy!
Seriously, how cute are those!

Teaching our kids stories out of the bible helps them to grow in their faith. For many parents, it would be too easy to become lax in teaching them stories from the bible, thinking that they may be learning those stories from Sunday school. As a parent who also teaches Sunday school for the preschool age and works with youth, I can tell you that the 40-60 minutes a child sits in class at church just isn't going to cut it. It is OUR job as … Keep Reading →
I once saw this postcard as a kid, and fell in love with it. It always made me wonder what would happen if Easter eggs did hatch. I mean, is that where the idea of Peeps came from?

Some vendors believe that the colored chicks sell better than an average … Keep Reading →

Every year when it comes time to stuff my kids Easter eggs, I scramble to come up with non candy Easter Egg fillers that won't end up in the trash can three hours later. While I occasionally include one (maybe two) small candy items in their basket, I'm just not a fan of a a bunch of candy filled eggs to rot their teeth and sour their attitudes. This year, I decided I would avoid the scramble and begin my search early. These are so good that I … Keep Reading →
