I've got a whole load of Easter crafts on the go at the moment, it's a really fun time of year for creativity. When 3M Scotch set us a challenge to create some Everyday Magic at Easter with the children by working on an Easter craft challenge using the Scotch Brand products, we decided to make an Easter Bunny mask. The Boy is never that keen to wear a bonnet, but loves the idea of pretending to be the Easter Bunny and he's been practising his bunny hops for weeks now!
How To Make An Easter Bunny Mask
- cotton wool
- pink or white pipecleaners
- brown foam sheets (pink would also work, as would felt or thick card)
- white foam sheets
- pink foam sheets
- ribbon to tie (or elastic)
- double-sided tape, sticky tape strips, superglue (PVA doesn't stick well on foam)
- scissors (these are precision scissors from Scotch 3M)
1. From the brown foam, cut out two long ears and a face shape, just the top half of the face will do. Position this over your child's face and use a pen to make on where their eyes are, remove and cut eye holes.
2. Cut a 'snout', eye shapes out to surround the eye holes, and two buck teeth from the white foam.
3. Cut a nose from the pink foam.
4. Put some strips of double sided tape on the inner part of the ears, and stick fluffy cotton wool on. The double-sided tape works better on foam than PVA glue.
5. Use the superglue to glue the 'snout' and eye surroundings onto the main mask. This should be done by ADULTS, take care with superglue and follow the instructions carefull.
6. Place double-sided sticky tape over the cheeks of the bunny's face, and cover this with more fluffy cotton wool.
7. Place a strip of double-sided sticky tape on the centre of the white 'snout' and put the middle of the pipecleaners onto these close together, pressing them down firmly. Cover this with a strip of sticky tape.
8. Put a generous dollop of superlue over the centre of the whiskers and push the pink nose on top of this. Again ADULTS ONLY, The Boy is not touching that superglue, he's just pointing to the nose.
9. Make a small hole either side of the mask, about an inch in, and thread pink ribbon through and tie it. You could also use elastic for this.
