Toilet Roll Easter Bunnies

Here’s a fun little Easter craft Talitha and I did about a week before Ophelia was born. I’d started to find it difficult to motivate myself to do anything much and going out was not really happening either.

Determined to make this happen for us, I laid out all the materials the night before. When she came downstairs, it was like Christmas!

I’ve tried to start talking with her about Easter. Our faith is such an integral and important part of our lives, we want to honour our children by helping them to understand what and why we believe.

While Christmas was relatively easy (Jesus’ birthday), Easter is tricky for obvious reasons but we’re just really matter of fact about what we’re remembering at this time of year. Talitha doesn’t need to get much more than the message that she is loved right now.

To that end, I find all the iconography that’s become attached to Easter rather helpful now that I’m a parent. Rabbits, chicks and chocolate eggs are fun and speak of celebration to a two-year-old. A cross they don’t yet understand, not so much. So, we’re having all of it.

Easter rabbit craft - Beautiful Tribe

I punched holes at one of the toilet roll ends for threading pipe cleaner through to make bunny ears, painted the lot and stuck on eyes and pom poms once the paint dried. Then the finishing touches were added with a permanent marker. Easiest rabbit craft ever.

    something super easy and fun! love the white one. i’m not ‘into’ easter (or any other holiday for that) but i agree that the iconography of rabbits etc makes for something easy for kids to grasp.

      We have SO MANY rolls. I’ll definitely have to find other things to make with them.

    Oh these are super cute and easy – really going to try and make a few of these before Easter – lately I have not been able to find the time to do much crafting at all – must get myself in gear.

    Anyway so pretty and colourful

    Massively impressed! I must try and make more of an effort to do more crafting with F. She absolutely loves it. Now I’m not feeling so exhausted and sick in the afternoons maybe I’ll give these bunnies a go!

      So many times I’ve seen things you’ve done with F and thought “I really must get off my lazy tush and do this”! I think you have a great excuse for not getting up to too much though I’m sure you’re still doing loads!
