Easter Crafts for Kids: How to Make Bunny & Chicken Spoon Puppets by Donna John
This easy spoon puppet craft is a fun spring family activity. How cute is this bunny and chick? They are really easy to make, but do require supervision or help with cutting the construction paper and felt. After you make these spoon puppets with your kids, have a puppet show. What a great tradition to start for Easter day!
To make the fun spoon puppets you'll need white plastic spoons, felt, construction paper, markers, scissors and glue. Let your child get creative or print out the image above so they have a visual. You can cut out all the pieces from the construction paper or felt beforehand and let them assemble their puppets. Or, if they're older, let them do it because cutting with scissors helps with your child's development.
You can make these spoons puppets for other holidays, too. Think Santa, reindeers and snowmen for Christmas, leprechauns, shamrocks and a pot o' gold for St. Patrick's Day and pumpkins and witches for Halloween.
- white plastic spoons
- construction paper
Here's how to make it:
- Have your child draw on the bunny face using a marker.
- Cut two round circles for the body out of white felt or construction paper. Lay the spoon on top of one, put some glue around the edges and place the second circle on top (see image below).
- For the bunny, cut two ears out of white construction paper. Color the insides of the ears pink (or whatever color your child wants!). Glue the ears to the back of the spoon. Cut a small embellishment out of construction paper to go on the bunny's neck (flower, bow tie, regular tie, etc.). Glue it on. Cut a rectangular piece of green construction and then with scissors cut almost to the bottom all the way across to create the grass. Glue it to the front of the bunny.
- For the chicken, cut a beak and gobbler out of red construction paper. Glue them on. Cut two wings out of white construction paper and glue them to the back of the spoon. Cut a small embellishment out for the chicken's neck and glue it on. Make the grass the same way you did for the bunny and glue it on the front. Add two eyes with a black marker.
