How do you make a bunny out of paper plates?
Here are the steps I took to put together this simple setup so that my LO can create a paper plate bunny…
Set a paper plate and elmers glue on the table.
Cut out the pieces you will need to glue on to the paper plate.
Construction paper pieces are:
2 eyes (circle)
2 sets of 3 whiskers in small, medium and large (rectangle)
2 bunny ears (oval)
1 bunny nose (triangle)
Set these out on the table as well.
Then, glue the pieces together onto the paper plate to build a bunny paper plates craft!
You can even create a paper plate bunny mask by creating holes around the eyes, nose and mouth and on the sides of the paper plate to attach string too (supervision by a trusted adult advised).

Easter Bunny ideas for Toddlers
For toddlers, we skipped the glue and just added the pieces to the paper plate.
This was fun, almost like a puzzle but not really.
It allowed for my LO to create her rabbit craft with her imagination.
Paper plate bunnies don’t have to be perfect.
Bunny paper activities and paper plate rabbit crafts can be fun and the best part – you can talk about the shapes and colors as you add them to the paper plate.
How to make a Easter Bunny with paper only
Another fun way to go about this Easter bunny plate craft for toddlers is to not use a paper plate at all.
Use a construction paper circle cutout to add the pieces to the circle.
This way, there is no 3D texture in the way when applying how to make a bunny face.
