Welcome to month 3 of Project: recycle and create! Take a look at month 1’s materials cardboard and month 2’s packaging materials. This month we are focusing on cardboard tubes. This means anything from toilet rolls, paper towel rolls and even gift wrapping inners.
Just because mine are made from toilet paper rolls (we craft at home and I know schools have restrictions) does not mean that you can not do this craft with any other cardboard tube!
Take a look at our cute easter bunny and chick treat holders!
To make you will need:
- Cardboard tubes
- White and yellow paint
- Googly eyes
- Foam to make the ears, nose / beak and feet. We have used white, pink and orange.
- Feathers for the chicks wings
- A large pom pom / cottom wool ball for the bunny tail
- Black marker for bunny face
Paint the cardboard tubes in the color need for either bunny or chick. Leave to dry.
Once the tubes are dry use one of the white tubes to gauge an approximate size for the bunny ears on paper. Draw a little extension for gluing on the inside of the cardboard tube.
Cut out this template and use for your bunny ears on the foam. I also traced around the base of a tube to get the feet size for both chick and bunny. You will want the base closed if you are adding treats to these tubes.
Construct your Easter bunny and chicks using glue so that they look like below. I used a peg to hold the bunny ears in place until the glue dried.
Once they are dry you are able to add your Easter treats into the cardboard tubes.
