An Easter paper craft of mine had just been published in the children's magazine "My Big Backyard".
The craft was a egg holder in the shape of a bunny. I had successfully made this craft with lots of kids at my school presentations, and showed the Bunny to my egg coloring guests.
After coloring 4 dozen eggs we all decided we could make THREE DOZEN Bunny Huggers as name tags for our Easter dinner tables! A grand idea to accomplish in an afternoon...but we did it!
We had a blast! Here is how you can make your own Bunny Hugger for
Easter Sunday, or any ol' day.
Cut an 8 1/2" piece of paper in half.
Fold the bottom edge of one of the sides up to the edge to make a triangle.
Cut the rectangle shape away to make the triangle. Cut carefully and save that piece.
Cut a long triangle shape into the point of the triangle (while folded in two).
Fold the saved rectangle piece in half and draw a paw and a foot.
Cut out paper pieces for eyes, tail, ear centers, nose and whiskers.
Bend the triangle shape around a toilet paper roll section and glue or tape in place.
The toilet paper roll section will give the Bunny stability to hold an egg.
