What you need

How to make them

Step 1: Cut out your rabbit ears – you’ll need two ears and one headband per child.

Step 2: If these bunny ears are for your own child, test the headband on them before you stick it together, so you can make sure it fits.

Step 3: Glue one end of the headband to the other and stick on your bunny ears.

3. Play Pin the Tail on the Easter Bunny

A variation of the classic game, in this case we’ve actually done most of the work for you, so it’s ideal if you’re short on time. You’ve got an Easter bunny poster and a set of printable rabbit tails, so all you need to do is let everyone have a go at pinning their tail on the Easter Bunny and judge who wins.

Don’t forget to pick up an Easter Egg for the lucky winner!

What you need

How to play

Step 1: Stick your poster up at a height that’s easy for children to reach.

Step 2: Cut out one bunny tail for each player and write their names on them.

Step 3: Add a small piece of blue tac to the back of each tail and hand them out.

Step 4: Have each player take it in turns to put the blindfold on and stick their tail to the poster.

The winner is the player whose tail is closest to the correct position. But you knew that already, didn’t you?

If you’re looking for something truly traditional to try this Easter, creating your own Easter Bunny bonnet is definitely the way to go. Your kids will love wearing these fun, creative hats, and what’s to stop them wearing them all weekend?

What you need

How to make it

Step 1: Choose a design you like and cut it out, along with two bunny ears.

Step 2: Follow the ‘glue here’ instructions written on the design and fold it into a cone shape. Leave the glue to dry.

Step 3: Pinch the corners at the base of each ear together to make them more lifelike, then glue one to each side of your bonnet. Again, leave the glue to dry.

Step 4: If you’re worried about the bonnet falling off your child’s head, cut a piece of ribbon big enough to fit snugly under their chin and staple each end to the sides of your bonnet.
