How to Make a Paper Plate Bunny Craft

Crafting a bunny from a paper plate is the perfect activity for the classroom or a fun playdate with friends. Follow these simple steps to create your own adorable bunny to hop into your heart.

Step 1: Cut the Paper Plate in Half

Start by handing each child participating in this craft a white paper plate and child-friendly scissors. Have them cut the paper plate in half. If your child is on the younger side, you may need to draw a line across the middle of the paper plate so that they have a guideline to follow.

Once the paper plate is cut in half, set one half aside for later use. Or if this craft is being done in a classroom setting, have students work with a partner, and they can each have one half of the paper plate to work with.

Step 2: Print and Cut Bunny Ear Template

If you haven’t already, print and cut this bunny ear template. Once your template is cut out, place it on two different-colored pieces of pink construction paper. Trace around the template and cut out two sets of bunny ears, like in the image below.

Glue the lighter-colored set of bunny ears on top of the larger pair. You can really use any color combination you want for these bunny ears, so feel free to get creative!

Step 3: Add Eyes & Whiskers

Now it’s time to glue the bunny ears to the back of the paper plate, as shown below. Grab some black construction paper and cut out two small circles for the eyes. Then, use pink construction paper to cut out three long skinny strips for the whiskers.

Lastly, crisscross the three sets of whiskers and glue them together. On top of the whiskers, glue a pom pom for the nose. Then glue the above to your rabbit’s face.

Step 4: Draw on Nose

Lastly, it is time to draw on your bunny’s mouth. Grab a marker, and draw a little line down straight from his nose. Then, draw a small smile at the bottom of the line. This will give your bunny a happy expression that will make everyone smile!
