Easter Bunny Mask

{Mia models my bunny mask.}
  • paper plate
  • craft stick
  • white paper
  • scissors
  • tape
  • glue
  • red or pink pom pom
  • pink and black markers
  • 2 black pipe cleaners
{Mask by Mia, Age 4}
  1. Using scissors, cut two eye holes near the center of a paper plate. We used luncheon size plates.
  2. Cut two ears from white paper. Color the inner part of the ear pink. Tape ears to the front (eating) side of the plate so that the colored part shows on the outside.
  3. Make the bunny's face on the back side (non-eating) of the plate. Glue on a pom pom nose and draw a mouth. Draw teeth if desired.
  4. Bend a pipe cleaner into thirds. Cut off one section. Keep the other part bent in half. Glue the bent piece on one side of the nose to make the bunny's whiskers. Glue the smaller section in between the two bent halves. Repeat this process with the second pipe cleaner and glue the pieces on the opposite side of the nose.
  5. Tape a craft stick handle to the back of the mask.
  6. Once all the glue is dry you can wear your mask.
Other Options: 
  • Skip cutting eye holes and glue on wiggly eyes, eyes cut from construction paper, or simply draw eyes onto your mask. 
  • If you choose to color your bunny (as Mia did because "bunnies are 'posed to be brown", you could add teeth cut from paper, felt, or foam.
  • Add a bow tie made from paper or actual ribbon.
