Yarn Bunnies and Foam Carrots
Here's a fun Easter craft for all ages. Little yarn bunnies and foam carrots are a welcome addition to any Easter basket. These are fun to make with kids for their Easter baskets or to give away as gifts.
All you have to do for this craft is paint a plastic egg with sugar glue, and wind white yarn around to create bunny fur. Embellish your bunny with a bunny tail, fluffy pink nose, and some googly eyes. Cut ears and feet out of foam paper. If your bunnies are hungry, make some foam carrots for a snack.
These bunnies stand up and would also be an adorable place card for your Easter brunch or dinner.
