Origami Easter Bunny Craft ~ Paper Fan Rabbits
My kids love feathers and creating simple crowns, so why not combine the two?!? Today, Jacinta is going to show us a quick way to make an adorable bunny. I can’t wait to make a set with my kids to use as an Easter garland!
I am so excited to be collaborating on a blog post for Housing a Forest! Thank you Tammy for including me. My name is Jacinta and I am an Australian based Scientist and Mama of three, hoping to inspire creative kids and fun mums, families and educators. I post easy, fun and educational projects on my Instagram page @cintaandco. My family and friends call me Cinta – short for Jacinta, and my kids are my co. – you will often see their little hands hard at work in the photos that I post.
We LOVE all types of origami and paper folding in our house. Paper folding is great for fine motor skill development, and results in beautiful items that can often be gifted to family and friends. These paper fan rabbits are super easy to make and would look fabulous attached to a simple brown paper gift bag that could be used for an Easter egg hunt or as gift wrapping.
Paper Fan Easter Rabbit Supplies
- 5 squares of grey paper and 1 square of pink – we used origami squares
- Double sided sticky tape or glue
- Pipe cleaners
- Pom pom
- Googly Eyes
How to make a paper fan rabbit
Take one of the grey sheets of paper and line up the bottom right hand corner of the paper with a ruler. Make a 2cm fold to start the fan. By measuring the initial folds, you will be able to keep the folds a consistent and neat size.
Continue folding until you have formed a fan with each of the four pieces of grey paper.
Once you have your 4 fans, fold each in half and secure the folded edges with double sided tape or glue.
Next, secure all four fans together to form 1 fan. Once you have 1 giant fan, grab hold of each free edge and bring them to meet together. Secure the edges with tape or glue.
The joined fan will form the face of your rabbit. Now all you have to do is attach some long ears, googly eyes, whiskers, mouth and a cute pom pom nose to finish your cute Easter rabbit!
