Materials Needed:

  • 3 hard boiled eggs
  • pink, yellow and orange food colouring 
  • paper towel
  • plastic cups
  • black marker
  • different coloured crepe paper
  • thick cardboard
  • glue
  • scissors
  • patty cups
  • white pom pom balls

What to do:

  • Line your 3 plastic cups up and add food colouring to each one. 
  • Dip each egg into 1 of the colours, so you should have a yellow, pink, and orange egg. 
  • Use a paper towel to blot dry. 
  • On a pink and yellow piece of cardboard cut out two bunny ears.
  • Stick the pink ears on the pink egg and the yellow ears on the yellow egg.
  • Under the ears, add 2 black dots for eyes.
  • Use glue for the pom pom on the bunny nose.
  • Cut strips from the green crepe paper, bunch together to create leaves and stick on the orange egg.
  • Lastly add egg bunnies to the patty cases and decorate with the crepe paper as grass. 
  • The Easter egg bunnies are now complete.

Hints and Tips:

  • This can be used as table centre pieces during Easter day.
  • Have these materials ready for children complete during family Easter celebrations. 
  • Let the children get creative and see what other egg animals they can create.
