  • Crafts for Kids: Printable Bunny Mask

    Printable Bunny Mask Craft

    It is that time of year when we all start envisioning the coming of spring. Lucky for us, Randi from Swoon is with us today to share a lovely project that will put us in a flowers blooming, leaves growing, bunnies hopping, frame of mind…

    Now that Valentine’s Day is behind us, we have a serious case of Spring fever around here. When stuck indoors for many days in a row, finding things for your children to do can seem a daunting task. Here’s a little bunny mask craft you can pull out on the inevitable rainy day in the near future. We made these the other day, and lo and behold, the sun showed up!

    Printable bunny mask

    To make a mask you will need: Mask template (download and print here), scissors, markers or crayons, hole punch, and two pieces of string or ribbon.

    Printable Bunny Mask for Spring

    1. Print template on to heavy paper and fold in half lengthwise.

    2. Cut your bunny out! Older children can do this by themselves, but little ones may need help with the eyes.

    3. Unfold mask and flip to the backside. Color the tip of the nose with crayon or marker. We kept things simple for the sake of photos, but if you’re kids love to color, get busy coloring the whole thing! You could even print the template on watercolor paper and let them paint their masks (allow drying time before moving to the next step).

    4. Flip mask back to the front and fold the nose down over the front of the mask. Fold the whole mask in half on the crease to make nose lie flat. Unfold mask, poke holes in side tabs, and tie on some string!
