Hi, I'm Taryn Mohrman, Parents Magazine's lifestyle editor. If you're looking to get your kids excited about the Easter bunny and egg decorating this year, then you have to check out our adorable Easter bunny egg. Olivia and I are gonna show you some really fun tricks that are gonna make crafting this bunny quick and simple. For this craft, you'll need an egg, either blown out or ceramic, some white and pink felt, scissors, a pencil and marker, craft glue, pink yarn, and white and small and pink pom-poms. So the first step to make in this bunny is to give him some ears and we have a really great trick for that. Olivia, I'm gonna borrow your pinkie finger, I'm gonna trace it onto white felt to get that inner ear shape. And for the outer ear shape, we're gonna trace Olivia's thumb. Cut these out and give this bunny some cute ears. Apply a thin line of glue to the outer ear shape and then gently press the inner ear shape on top. You can repeat those steps to make a second ear for your bunny. To put the bunny's ears on, apply 2 small dots of glue to the top of the egg. Then press each ear to the top and hold it in place for a few seconds. A bunny has got to have some whiskers so we're making his from pink yarn that we've gone ahead and sprayed with hairspray to make them extra stiff. I'm gonna give them a little twist. Add a drop of glue. And put them in place on his face. And then, Olivia, can you add that pink pom-pom nose for me? While his whiskers are drying, we're gonna give this bunny a fluffy white pom-pom tail. Now, all this bunny needs is a face, so with the marker, we're gonna draw two dots, for eyes. The trick to making the bunny's mouth is drawing a J shape and then drawing a little loop on the other side. And there you have it, an adorable Easter bunny that deserves a special spot on your breakfast table.
