Free Bunny Rabbit Template
Spring is in the air which means that it’s a great time to try out some rabbit themed art and crafts with your child.
Rabbits are a theme that fit in perfectly with spring and of course with Easter but they’re one that are sometimes used as part of a pet theme as well, or just because you really like rabbits. Nothing wrong with that as they are super cute!
This printable bunny rabbit template has two different designs in the PDF so you can choose if you want the rabbit’s features included in it or if you are using it for a craft and you’d rather add them yourself. Just print the one you like.
Of course you can also print as many copies as you like so if you want to try out a few ideas or if you are making some rabbit crafts with a group in a classroom or preschool them this is a great way to save a bit of time rather than trying to draw the outline yourself.

How To Decorate Your Bunny Rabbit Template
Coloring is always a great option if you want a simple, low-cost activity to do with kids. All you need are markers, crayons or coloring pencils so grab whatever you have at home and get going.
Pom Pom Painting
This is a technique that we’ve used a fair bit over the years as it gives a bit of texture to paintings. Pour a bit of paint onto a reusable plate or dish and grab hold of a pom pom. Dip the pom pom into your paint and then dab it onto the body of your rabbit to paint it.
If your child doesn’t like the feeling of paint on their hands (and it is likely to get on their fingers with this activity) then you can use a clothes peg to hold the pom pom.
I love resist art but it only really works if you have a good outline for your shape, I think that the bunny in this printable would work.
In brief, cut out the silhouette of the rabbit then use washi tape to attach it onto thicker paper or cardstock.
Paint all over the page covering all the edges of your template and then carefully remove the template to leave the blank space underneath. To see how this works in practice, and with a much better and detailed explanation, check out our resist art squirrel craft.
I think we can all agree that bunny’s are super fluffy! To make a cotton ball rabbit craft cover the blank rabbit template with glue all over it’s body and then stick your cotton balls onto this.
Foil painting is another simple technique we’ve used a fair bit, especially when my kids were toddlers or preschoolers as it gives them a big painting material to hold.
You can create this similarly to the pom pom painting but instead of a pom pom scrunch up a piece of aluminium foil / kitchen foil into a ball and use this to paint with.
If you want to make sure your craft looks like a rabbit at the end (and younger kids are obviously more inclined to paint everywhere) you can either cut the bunny shape out before you start or once the paint has dried.
Make a Banner
Made a few rabbit crafts? Why not make a simple decoration with them that you can hang up.
Simply cut the rabbit shapes out and then on the back attach them to some yarn or bakers twine with a bit of tape before hanging them up.
Add to your rabbit’s face by gluing some pipe cleaners onto it to make whiskers.
