We made this Handprint Peeking Bunny Craft as a story + art project. We read a bunny book and also played a game based on the book. Make this as an Easter craft, Spring craft, preschool craft, or just for fun!
The book we read was called *Flora's Blanket by Debi Gliori (*affiliate link). It is a cute story about Flora, a baby bunny, who wants to go to sleep with her blanket but cannot find it. Her family offers her theirs but she only wants hers. They search everywhere for it, even outside. Eventually, Flora grows sleepy and her parents place her in their bed. The father bunny feels a lump under his pillow and discover it is Flora's missing blanket.
Activity Based on Flora's Blanket
I hid one of my son's blankets and he had a blast trying to find it just like the bunny in the book. Then, we made the bunny craft. The bunny is hiding in the grass. This craft was inspired by the one I saw on Busy Bee Kids Crafts, which involves no painting and is made from a paper plate.
How to make the Peeking Bunny Handprint Craft
Cut out 2 bunny ears and a circle from white paper or a color of choice.
My son glued the pieces in place and then glued on googly eyes and a button nose.
Next, we painted his hands green and made prints along the bottom of our page - 3 of each hand.
Now the bunny is peeking out from the grass!
When it finished drying, I painted on the pink part of the ears and the bunny's whiskers.
