We have been having so much fun making new spring crafts! Here’s an idea that kids will love – make adorable painted bunny eggs and chick eggs. I recommend using wooden craft eggs and painting them with acrylic paint. They will make an adorable keepsake that you can use year after year! Just grab a basket or tray and some green paper Easter grass, and you’ll have an adorable display.
One of the my favorite things about spring is that there are so many ways to decorate eggs! You’ll also want to check out our LEGO Egg Decorating Machine (easy to build with the bricks you have) and our Resurrection Eggs.
- Wooden craft eggs
- Acrylic paint
- Felt – white, pink, and tan
- White Pom Pom balls
- Tacky Glue
- Hot glue gun
- Black Sharpie marker
I bought our wooden craft eggs at Hobby Lobby. They are with the wooden crafts, not the seasonal items. They keep these in stock all year.
Step 1: Sketch your design with a pencil. For the bunnies, it’s okay to paint the eggs white or tan first. For the chicks, you’ll want to sketch out the face and shell line before painting.
Step 2: Draw the face with a black Sharpie marker. Paint the chick’s beak with orange acrylic paint.
Step 3: Make the bunny ears and feet. I cut them from felt and glued them together with Tacky Glue. The tiny pads for the bunnies’ feet are too small for hot glue, but Tacky Glue was a great option.
Step 4: Use hot glue to attach the bunny ears and feet to the egg. Tacky Glue will also work, but hot glue is nice because it dries so quickly and adheres well to the felt and wood. Give your bunnies white pom pom ball tails.
Then you’re ready to display your bunny and chick painted Easter eggs!
I love Hobby Lobby for finding cute wooden trays and baskets. I display our Star Wars painted eggs in a metal tray that is also adorable.
