“Here comes Peter Cottontail, Hoppin’ down the bunny trail. Hippity hop hop, Hippity hop hop, Easter’s on its way”

We all know and love this little jingle we learned as children.  Hearing and singing this itty bitty ditty was a sure sign that Easter was coming! 

And with Easter on its way, so are some enjoyable goodies that will be delivered by Peter Cottontail himself.  Usually consisting of some type of treat in a colorful basket, children are excited to search for this hidden delight early Easter morning.  Whether it’s a small gift, piece of chocolate or a handful of jellybeans, whatever is in the basket is always a cheerful surprise! 

So, what happens after the Easter basket is found and the excitement dies down?  Well, we’re glad you asked! 

We are pretty sure that we have a great idea to keep the children busy…  Why not make an Easter cotton ball bunny! 

Crafting this delightful pocket-sized rabbit can be another fun activity for the little ones to enjoy on Easter day.

Cotton Ball Bunny Easter Craft

Ages: 2+ (with adult supervision)

Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 cotton balls
  • Glue
  • Markers (pink & black)


  • Take the first cotton ball and fluff it up. Put to the side.  This will be the body of the bunny.
  • Take the second cotton ball and pull off 3 smaller pieces.
  • Roll one smaller piece between your palms like you’re making a meatball. This will be the bunnies’ tail.
  • Roll the two remaining smaller pieces back and forth in your palms to make oval-like shapes. These will be the bunnies’ ears.
  • Glue the tail and ears to the bunny body (the first cotton ball you fluffed up). We used school glue to keep it safe for the little ones, but hot glue (used only by an adult) will work too.
  • Once the glue has dried, make eyes with the black marker.
  • Using the pink marker, color the ears and make a bunny nose.
  • There you have it! An Easter cotton ball bunny!

Make one bunny or hundreds! Once you start making them it may be hard to stop!
