Free Printable Build an Bunny Rabbit Craft for Kids
Here are some fun ideas for using this free printable cut and paste bunny craft:
– Listen to fun spring themed music while you build your own bunny! My kids love The Way the Bunny Hops from The Kiboomers. We have fun dancing and hopping around like bunny rabbits while the music plays. I like to look for ways to engage the senses with toddlers and preschoolers which makes music a regular part of our fun together.
– Consider a bunny themed snack time. We like to do snack time family style: a large plate filled with munchies in the middle of the table for everyone to share.
A plate filled with fresh veggies like cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, and broccoli florets with ranch dip would be a fun way to “eat like rabbits” while decorating your own bunny rabbit craft.
– Take your crafts to meet real bunnies! If you have a petting zoo or pet store nearby, consider taking your children to visit with their completed rabbit crafts. They can compare their bunnies to the real rabbits and learn more about bunny rabbits hands-on.
Facilitate their learning with questions like: “How many ears does the rabbit have?” and “Does this rabbit look the same as your bunny?”
– Don’t forget story time! I love a good book and reading aloud is an important part of developing literacy and an early love of learning. One of our favorite stories is Home for a Bunny from Little Golden Books. My mother read it to me and I love reading it to my girls.
Bunny Craft Tutorial
So without further ado, let’s hop on in! Below you will find a short list of supplies to gather before you get started.
- White Card Stock Paper
- Colored Pencils, Markers or Crayons
- Printable Bunny Template (FOUND AT THE BOTTOM)
After you have gathered your supplies and printed off your favorite bunny template, cut out all of the bunny template shapes.
If you chose the blank bunny template, be sure to color him first and then cut out the body.
The initial step in the gluing process is to start with his head and body.
Next, glue on his adorable little feet.
Finally, finish him off by gluing on your bunny’s floppy ears.
How adorable is he?! And so easy to make!
Looking for a way to make this spring craft reusable, time and time again? Laminate him! We absolutely LOVE our laminating machine! Having never had one before, I was surprised at how easy this was to set up, laminate and put away!
Plus, we were even able to get our smallest involved in the craft too while she is learning body parts.
Simply laminate the bunny rabbit template first, cut out the shapes and use these small Velcro dots to be able to interchange the pieces! It’s super simple!

Whether you’re planning to use these simple printable crafts as part of a lesson for a classroom or home school, or just looking for something fun to do with your children for quality time this season, I hope you have fun building and decorating your own bunnies.
You can use crayons, markers, break out the glitter, or even glue white fuzzy pom-poms to decorate your bunny. I’d love to see your completed bunnies in the comments and hear all about how you used this cute craft.
