Spring is finally here and we’re gearing up for Easter!
One way to celebrate was making a Easter Bunny Nature Craft. We were able to get outside and create, which is our favorite.
Everything we used, we found in our back yard, besides the paper and glue.
For our craft, I told Mila she was going to make a bunny out of leaves and flowers. Since she had a traumatic experience with the Easter Bunny this year, I wanted to help her see he wasn’t all that bad.
She loved finding leaves for the bunny’s ears and then a flower for his tail. It was a great hunt. I think it’d be awesome to have a scavenger hunt for all the components too.
Since the trees in Ohio still haven’t produced new leaves, a lot of what she found was old.
After we set it all out, I had her tell me what she wanted to use for the bunny’s body parts. She decided about its body, tails, and ears.
Then, I asked her if she thought we should make the bunny a crown. She did!
Once we added grass for the bunny to stay in, mila thought it was complete. As she played, I glued everything down.
It turned out so cute and it was fun watching Mila pick out different things around the yard. She was so creative in making the bunny too.
I can definitely see us doing something similar again! It’d be really challenging with having her find Easter eggs filled with supplies too. Maybe I’ll have a lamination machine by the next time we do an activity with nature. A girl can dream right?
As always, let me know in the comments if you tried to make an Easter Bunny Nature Craft! I know your child will love getting outside and creating too.
