I found this lovely old book called "Lets Make Rabbits" - a fable by Leo Lionni- at my sister's house the other day. We used to love reading it as children and it lends itself very nicely to a few Easter bunny crafty activities for toddlers/young children and big crafters too! It is such a simple lovely story- here are a few pages from the beginning of the story.
I drew a stencil outline of the different parts of the rabbit, then photocopied it onto different craft paper. (You could cut each piece out and make a stencil to trace around if you don't have a photocopier.)
I cut out each piece, choosing some pieces from each of the craft papers, then my toddler (with my help!) glued the pieces onto a blank piece of paper to make the rabbit. If you had older children they could do all the cutting and pasting on their own. I had some little white pom poms so we used one for the tail. If you don't want to use your craft paper you could just give your child the shapes and let them colour in each piece before cutting and gluing it to make the rabbit.
(this would make a cute card too just by reducing its size on the photocopier)
Another crafty project would be to cut out the pieces from fabric and make a cute applique art work or applique onto a t-shirt (changing the size of the rabbit stencil if you wanted to.)
