Valentines bunny – paper craft!

Each year my kids make their dad a Valentines card or craft to tell him how much they love him. This year my daughter decided to make him a Valentines bunny. Bunnies are her favourite animal at the moment, therefore everyone receives a picture or a beautiful bunny craft on a frequent basis! She decided to make a paper craft bunny for her Valentines craft this year.

To make your paper craft bunny you will need – white paper, coloured card of your choice, scissors, glue and a pen. 

Start by cutting out the shapes you will need from white paper for the bunnies body. We used a large heart for the tummy, a circle for the head, four smaller hearts for the paws and two ear shapes.

Next use glue to stick down your paper shapes where you would like them, to form your Valentines bunny.

Draw on the bunnies face and add your Valentines message! You can also add a coloured heart to the bunnies tummy. My daughter added a red cellophane heart to hers to decorate!

A very cute Valentines picture using paper craft which could easily be popped onto a card to make a home-made Valentines Day card. My daughter can’t wait to give her Valentines bunny to her Dad on Sunday!

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day spent with the ones you love!

Eggscellent Egg Decorating!

It’s a little bit of a tradition in our family to decorate eggs at Easter time and this year is no different! My 4 year old son decided he wanted to make a Mike Wazowski (from Monsters inc) egg and my 7 year old daughter opted to make an Easter bunny egg.

 We started off by hard boiling the eggs and waiting for them to cool. After that they painted them with some acrylic paint which a friend had given them. These can usually be picked up relatively cheaply in art stores or on-line. My daughter added tissue paper for her bunny nose, googly eyes and a cotton wool tail, and my son added a hat made from tissue paper. They both drew on extra details with a black felt tip pen, and we used painted kitchen tube pieces as holders so they could stand up and be displayed.

 We think they look great and will make a lovely table decoration at Easter time. Maybe you could decorate a whole bunch of eggs as a centrepiece!
