Looking for cute Easter card idea to do with your little one? Whether you are at home with a baby, a toddler, preschooler or older child, this fun Easter card idea for kids could be just what you are looking for. A cute bunny themed card for your loved ones.
What will you need for your Easter Card?
- Child friendly Paints in any colours (or see our recipe for homemade paint here)
- Paint Brush (optional)
- Baking Tray
- Rabbit Template (click here for the template download)
- Thicker paper or A4 card for the card
Pop some paint onto your baking tray. Let your little one mix the colours with their hands or with a paint brush. Babies may enjoy doing this in their highchair with the baking tray in front of them.
This is the step your little one will love! Your little one can create patterns in the paint. They can practice colour mixing, practice drawing shapes & letters or simply enjoy swishing the paint around. Once you are ready, lay a sheet of paper onto the baking tray and press the paper down to capture the print. Pop the prints to one side to dry.
Whilst you wait for your amazing artwork to dry, it is time to create a bunny template. You could draw your own Easter Bunny shape or there is a handy bunny template you download here. Print the bunny shape out onto card or you could cut out a shape from cardboard / cereal box to create a template.
Once your artwork is dry and you have a bunny shape ready, pop the template onto your artwork and draw around the bunny template. Cut out the shape so you have a colourful bunny (or lots of colourful bunnies!).
Take your piece of A4 card and fold in half to create a card ready to decorate with your bunny. Stick your bunny shape onto the card with a little glue.
Now you or your little one can add some extra little details to your card. You could add some grass in crayon / pen, maybe a little carrot. If you have googly eyes, you could add one on or even a fluffy little cotton wool tail. You can add some words like ‘Happy Easter’ to finish off your card ready to pop in the post to someone you love.
I hope you enjoy creating an Easter card with your little ones and bringing a smile to someone’s face. For more art activities to enjoy with your children, check out our Facebook page here.
