Make use of the natural craft materials in your backyard with this beautiful nature bunny craft. I am a huge advocate for natural craft activities – not only do they encourage sustainable use of craft materials, they also help your kids to connect with nature. If your kids love craft, this egg bunny activity is sure to delight and inspire!
All you need are a few simple materials, most of which you can collect outside with your kids. Ready to get creative?
What you will need:
- 1 or more eggs (this really depends on how many children you have but it’s also good to have a couple of spares)
- A permanent marker
- A hair tie
- A good quality craft glue like mod podge
- Lots of pretty flowers and leaves
Yep, that’s it. I love when most of the craft items are readily available to use.
How to make your own egg bunny nature craft
Step 1. Blow out the inside contents of the egg. If you’re not sure how to do this, you can read some instructions here.
Step 2. Go outside and collect some leaves and lots of pretty little flowers with your children. We like using a cane basket. You might like to use this free nature colour wheel during your hunt.
Step 3. Lay all your natural materials on the tables so that your children can see all the potential bunny ears (leaves) and head decorations (flowers).
Step 4. Draw on the bunny face. Your child can do this themself, or you can help them.
Step 5. Let your child pick which leaves make the best bunny ears.
Step 6. Glue the leaves on the egg to make your egg look like a bunny. Secure them with the hair tie. This will allow them to try while you’re finishing off the decorations on the top of the bunny’s head.
Step 7. Add more glue to the bunny’s head and decorate the top of the egg with pretty flowers.
Step 8. Use a milk or water bottle cap to stand the bunny up while it dries. If you would like to weave a nature basket, like in the photo, the instructions are here.
I hope you enjoy this craft – I know we did! If you give it a go, don’t forget to share and tag Mother Natured. I always love to see others enjoying my favourite nature crafts.
Have a wonderful Easter holiday season!
