I love all of the spring and Easter crafts but there’s something about this bunny craft that gives me particular joy – I think it’s just so cute?! It’s really easy to make and as doilies can be brought in big packs it could be a good craft to do with a group of kids too. If you buy smaller doilies this would be a brilliant craft to make as an Easter card too!

Bunny crafts are great for making with children as you can use them either for Easter, spring or if you’re making some farm animal crafts. I love this sweet craft as the doily makes the bunny’s face look kind of soft and fluffy? Which of course bunnies are, I can’t lie, my kids know I’m kind of obsessed about how cute rabbit are.

Bunny Books For Kids
My kids love a themed story to go along with what they’ve been doing and I think most kids are the same! These rabbit themed books all sound fantastic and would be great for reading this Spring or maybe as a little Easter present. Which would be your kids favourite?
- Guess How Much I Love You* by Sam McBratney – a classic rabbit book for children
- That’s Not My Bunny* by Fiona Watt – we love the That’s Not My… series and they’re ones that my kids still like a look through year after year
- Big Bad Bun* by Jeanne Willis – we have this book and it’s been read so many times it’s starting to fall apart a bit!
Doily Bunny Craft
- Black pen
- 1 Paper doily
- Paper or card white, pink and black
- Start by cutting out some ears from white card and then cut the same shape out of pink paper or card, make the pink ones slightly smaller though so these can fit in the middle of the white ears. You can use paper for this but card or card stock is a lot better as it will hold up and if you’d like to display your rabbit afterwards you might not want the ears flopping over it’s face!
- Stick the pink insides in the middle of the white ears and then stick these onto the top of your doily with some glue.
- Next up cut out a black nose and whiskers from your black card and some pink cheeks from your pink card. Of course you don’t *need* pink cheeks but I think they’re way cuter and cuteness is very important in my opinion!
- All that’s left to do now is add your eyes and mouth. For the mouth I’ve used a black pen to draw it in and for the eyes I’ve used some more of the black card and then stuck these on to the bunny's face. I've tried out two different styles of this, circles and crescent shapes but obviously go with whatever you prefer.
