We had a pot-luck-style Easter party today that was organized by one of our friends. Instead of bringing food, I decided to put my crafting skills to work and brought along a fun Easter craft for the kids to make.

Bunny ears headband


  • White poster board
  • Colored paper
  • Glitter glue
  • Markers
  • Foam letters
  • Anything else that the kids can use for decorating their headband
  • Stapler
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors


Cut out a pile of ears from both the poster board and colored paper for the kids to use.

Wrap strips of poster board around each child’s head and cut it accordingly leaving enough to overlap at the back. Attach the white bunny ears to the cardboard strip using the stapler.

Have the kids glue the colored paper ears onto the white ears using the glue stick and then let them decorate their bunny ears headband using the supplies you put out.

Once they are finished, staple the back of the headband so that they can put it on their head.

Craft tip: I left a tape dispenser out and found that the older kids were more than happy to tape their bunny ears to the headband themselves, but for the little ones I quickly stapled them on as I noticed any new crafters sitting down at the table. I also set out two different types of glue, the Elmer’s School Glue for attaching pom-poms and the Elmer’s Glue Sticks for attaching the colored section of the ear to the white background. The kids had alphabet foam stickers, assorted Easter-themed foam stickers, glitter glue, pom poms, and crayons to decorate their headbands.

The bunny headband is really cute. Other kids will surely have fun doing it. And the materials used are recycled.
