We have one more week until Easter so we will be cramming in as many Easter activities this week as possible. We are starting the week off with these color matching bunnies. This is a great activity to work on fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. Have your child match the colored bunny ears with the colored bunny heads.
How I Made These Color Matching Bunnies:
First, I began creating this activity by prepping the egg carton. I cut the middle section out to make room for a second row of bunny faces.
Next, I decided to only make six bunnies (one for each color of the rainbow) so I cut the egg carton in half.
Thirdly, I traced and cut out circles for the bunny heads. I actually used Easter eggs to trace for the circular shape. After I cut out the heads, I painted each one. I painted one for each color of the rainbow. When they were dry, I hot glued them to the egg carton.
Next, I traced and cut out ears for the bunnies. Then I painted each one of those a color of the rainbow.
After the ears were dry, I hot glued them to little wooden stakes. You could use toothpicks too.
Finally, I used my box cutter to cut small slits in the tops of the egg cartons to make holes for the toothpicks to fit through.
How To Play:
I had my three year old match the bunny ears with the corresponding colored bunny head. I then had him count the bunnies.
For my one year old, I simply had him pull the bunny ears out and put them in wherever he wanted to. I mainly focused on the fine motor skills aspect of this activity with him.
