You may need to use two pieces of paper depending on the age of the child and size of his/her head.

Tape the ends together so its like a hat.

This is the base of the hat.

Remember the thicker the base is, the harder it will be for them to rip.

Cut out two bunny ears from the paper and have the children color them.

They can also color the base of the hat if they want.

Tape or staple the ears to the front of the base.

Lay everything out on the table so the kids can pick and choose what they want.

Cut the string to appropriate sizes for the children’s neck.

Add a piece of tape to one end, making it so it comes to a point. This will make it easier for the children to string it through.

Let the children string their necklaces with what they want.

Tie them around the children’s neck so they can wear and enjoy there project.

Another variation to this is use shoe string licorice for the string. This way the whole necklace can be eaten.

Quick And Easy Easter Crafts For Kids

My children love doing craft projects. We always come up with a few new ones for each holiday.

The kids usually have some sort of break during the holidays, so doing crafts not only decorates the house, but it keeps them busy during their time off.

As an added bonus, usually the more things you plan out for you kids to do the less they will get in trouble!

It keeps their minds and bodies in motion and helps wear them out too so maybe an early bedtime will be necessary?

One can hope!
