Beautiful Blooms

Simple-to-make felt flowers look darling as a low-maintenance, high-impact decoration. Place them in the center of the table and let the children take one home as a party favor.

All Ears!

Turn your little party guests into a herd of hopping bunnies. Glue chenille stems between two layers of felt and attach to a simple headband. These ears are so adorable, your kids won't want to take them off.

Every Bunny's Welcome

Don't forget the stuffed animals! Set them up on the couch with their own springtime feast. A miniature tea set, play pastries, and even a stuffed carrot will complete their party nicely.

Make an Impression

Press the blunt side of a cookie cutter into bread, then toast to create these perfect bunny-theme snacks. Spread honey mustard on the bottom slice and layer with ham and shredded lettuce.

Pink Drink

Attach a felt bunny face to a straw to dress up a tasty fruit smoothie. Stick marshmallows to the inside of the cup for a polka-dot effect.

Spring Bling

Toward the end of the party, let your young guests wind down with an easy craft project. Set up a buffet of beads and precut felt shapes such as squares, circles, and flowers so they can make a sweet necklace to match their Easter ensemble.
