You will need:

  • Cardboard tubes (paper towel or toilet paper)
  • Craft paint
  • Mini pom poms
  • Felt (substitute construction paper)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Marker
  • Scissors


  • Take your cardboard tubes and cut them into different lengths, longer for the mom and dad bunnies, shorter for the bunny children
  • Cut thinner strips (about 1/2″) to make the bunny ears
  • Put a small amount of hot glue inside the ears, squeezing together until they’re flat
  • Paint the tubes and ear strips in your choice of colors.  Add a strip of light pink for the inner ears
  • Hot glue the ears to the inside of the painted tubes
  • Add eyes (googley eyes can be used too), noses, and whiskers
  • Accessorize your bunnies with bows, buttons, an apron, etc.

If you don’t have felt, substitute colored construction paper for the bows/bowties.  You can also choose to draw in your bunny noses, or glue on small pink circles.  Find the complete, original craft tutorial at Crafts by Amanda.

I tackled this project with my 4-year-old this morning.  K did all the painting herself, I jumped in on glue gun duty and bunny accessories.  She had a blast, here are our results!
