With Easter right around the corner we’ve been loving all the adorable spring animal crafts and products that are about at the moment and We decided to make our own Easter cards. After a bit of experimenting we came up with these super cute kawaii bunny cards. With the current virus situation my son won’t be able to hand them out but we can always send a picture to his friends! Besides, we can stash them in the cupboard as back up birthday cards for the next time I forget to pick one up (it happens more than i’d like to admit!).
You will need
Start off by taking an A4 piece of card and fold it in half. Draw the shape of your bunny head on to your card by drawing an egg shape with two elongated ears (you’ll need a flat section at the bottom so that your card can stand up). Remember to leave part of your fold line intact otherwise instead of one card you will have two separate bunny faces! Now cut out your card.
Once you have your bunny card cut out, cut out and glue down two coloured ovals to make the rabbit’s inner ears.
Now to make the eyes! There are two examples in the picture above. If you want to make the happy squinting eyes, cut out three rounded strips of black card and stick them into a triangular shape as above. For the big open eyes, cut out a black circle then add a white circle and a smaller white circle to make the light spots. Make two eyes and glue them down on your bunny.
Cut out a black number 3 shaped piece and glue it down to make the mouth.
finish off by adding two pink ovals to make some rosy cheeks. Optionally, add a bow by cutting out an hourglass shape and a different coloured circle, glue the two pieces together and stick them at the base of your bunny’s ear.

If you've followed the blog at all you will know that my son is mad about all things under the sea. He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish
Today I'm back again with another pipe cleaner craft! We had so much fun making these yesterday and came up with some really fun little ideas. I think though that these pipe cleaner snail magnets are my favourite of the day. They're just so adorable and once you get the hang of them they're really easy to make too. We have a whole garden full of them on our fridge right now!
How sweet are these little pipe cleaner apple magnets? It took us a couple of tries to perfect them but now weve got them figured and wanted to share them with you all! In fact, we've got so good at making them that it only takes us a few minutes on each. My son recently Made some sweet apple and worm cards for his teachers as due to current situation he wont be going back to school this year and he wanted to make extra to gift them too. Such a sweet little idea!
