Beaut Bunny Baskets
We love a bit of Easter craftiness here at RAW art.
This week I have a SUPER cute Easter idea that requires little more than an egg carton! I often see kids really enjoying making a small basket to store their hoard of Easter eggs, either in the classroom or at home. And I totally understand - those little shiny Easter eggs are so darn nice to look at.
This idea is SO simple, and uses recyclables which is always a bonus.
Start by having the kids each bring in an egg carton. You will need scissors, some paint, and a few sharpie pens for this project. Feel free to bedazzle and jazz up with extra Easter-y embellishment too!
Get an egg carton, and cut it along the fold. Cut four of the egg cavities off from the dozen. Cut a slit into the centre point of the carton, as seen in the pictures, this will be where your 2D bunny slides into to stand up later. Draw a simple bunny head and body on your carton lid as big as possible. Cut it out.
Sponge a thin layer of white paint all over your bunny and base carton. Think fluffy texture!
Once these are dry, use a black pen or pencil to draw on a nose, eyes, arms, and any other cute details your bunny might need. Slot the bunny body into the cut carton, and you have a standing bunny, with a built in egg basket!
I love the simplicity, and the scope of this project. Keep it simple - like we have done - or go highly decorative with extra colour, collage, bows! Maybe paint each egg holder a different colour - or give your bunny a big fluffy pom pom tail and a mini top hat!
Not long until the Easter holidays now - so you had better hop to it! Get crafty and crafting!
