Eraser Stamped Bunnies Spring Art Activity for Kids
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 the picture book 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.
How to Make 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.

I bet that was fun. Thanks for linking up with Creatively Crafty Easter Party.
I love how these turned out. I also love the simplicity of this art project!
This is such a cute idea too. Would make a wonderful card to give on Easter. Pinning.
So clever to run the eraser to make ears. Love these!
They came out great! And you can peel off the dried paint to use the eraser later, right?
Yep! Or just wash it off while the paint is still wet.
So cute! These little bunnies remind of the book It Looked Like Spilt Milk. White and fluffy and then the little details emerge.
Those are really cute! I love how the texture of the paint gives it a fluffy look. You’re right – perfect craft for so many age groups.
These turned out so great! Love the innovation of rolling the eraser to make long ears. :)
I thought that was a clever innovation :)
It’s fantastic you’re able to record your kids’ crafts! I’m sure they’ll look back on this and remember some fond memories :)
I hope so! They are very fond memories for me :)
Such a cute craft! Great for Easter!
We’d have such a hard time waiting for the paint to dry, but that is a fun craft you did.
Luckily we did this on a pretty warm day (California is like that) so the paint dried quickly, but it does take some patience!
