These eraser stamped bunnies make a quick and easy craft for kids. The post includes more fun spring and Easter crafts for kids, as well!
The kids made these eraser stamped bunnies after making our eraser stamped sheep, and I think they make a great Spring and Easter craft for kids! All you need is some construction paper, a pencil with an eraser (unused erasers work best as stamping tools), and some white paint! You can use a pen to add faces once the paint dries, if you like. The great thing about this craft is that kids of all ages will enjoy it! All four of my kids, aged two to eight, really had fun stamping paint on construction paper to make fields of happy bunnies!
This simple craft is a wonderful companion activity to this week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids pick, Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems. Home for a Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown is a very sweet picture book you can also read for this theme.
Spring and Easter Crafts: Making Eraser Stamped Bunnies
The technique for this craft is simple: dip the pencil eraser in the paint, then stamp the outline of the bunny on the construction paper.
Bunnies have a few more angles than sheep, and it was fun to see how the kids dealt with that. They would angle the eraser to make pointy ears as you can see in Johnny’s stamp of a running bunny above.
The kids also discovered that rolling the edge of the pencil eraser along the paper makes great bunny ears – like this sitting bunny made by Emma! Drawing bunnies can be intimidating, but stamping over and over inspired the kids to make bunnies in all sorts of different positions and from different angles! Some did, of course, look more bunny-like than others.
We used a pen to add faces to some of our bunnies once the paint dried, but others (like the running bunny) they decided to keep plain white.
