Easter is two weeks away. So, we have been prepping for all the fun festivities! We had so much fun making this DIY Easter Bunny Basket and Carrot Hunt Command Game. The kiddos really enjoyed hunting for carrots and acting like bunnies.
Getting Excited About Easter
We have been doing a lot of activities involving bunnies, carrots and lettuce (maybe my kiddos will eat veggies now). Hopefully, we can find a friend who has a real bunny, so we can go feed it veggies. That would be really neat to go and do.
But, for now, we are making bunny crafts and making them into activities.
Today, we made an Easter Bunny Basket and Carrot Command Sticks. The littles had fun hunting for the carrots and acting out the commands on the sticks.
DIY Easter Bunny Basket and Carrot Hunt Game - Materials
- Cereal Box
- White Paper
- Pink Paper
- Hot Glue and Gun
- Black Permanent Marker
- Pink 2" Ribbon
- Jumbo Craft Sticks
- Orange Paint
- Foam Brush
- Green Paper
DIY Easter Bunny Basket - Directions
Step One. Cut a cereal box in half and glue on white paper. I used a double-bag cereal box (the ones you get from Costco). But, a regular cereal box will work just fine.
Step Two. Cut out two bunny ears from the scraps of white paper. And cut out pink paper for the insides of the ears. Glue them together.
Step Three. Cut out a little pink heart and glue it to the middle of the box. Draw a bunny face around it with black permanent marker.
Step Four. Glue the bunny ears to the inside of the box right above the bunny's face.
Step Five. Cut a strip of ribbon and glue each end to the inside sides of the box.
Carrot Hunt Command Sticks - Directions
Step One. Have your kiddos paint the jumbo craft sticks orange with a foam brush. Let dry.
Step Two. Glue on green rectangles to one end and cut partial strips to resemble leaves.
Step Three. Write fun commands on the carrots with black permanent marker (like: hop like a bunny, wiggle your nose, jump really high, etc.)
Carrot Hunt Game - How to Play
Hide the carrots outside. Tell your kiddos how many carrots there are and that there is a fun thing to do written on each carrot. Then, have them go find them. Walk around with them too. When they find it, if they know how to read, have your kiddos read the command and then act it out. If they don't know how to read yet, read the command for them. Join in on doing the commands too! You all will be giggling so hard.
