Milk Carton Bunny Basket
Turn a milk carton into a cute little friend for Easter!
- Grades: PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5
Students can create this cute craft from a milk carton as a festive addition to an Easter or spring celebration.
What You Need
- Half-pint milk carton (one per student)
- Brown, white, grey, or other bunny-colored paint
- Cotton ball (one per student)
- Brown and pink construction paper
- Googly eyes (two per student)
- White yarn, cut into 1- to 2-inch pieces (4 to 6 pieces per student)
- Easter basket grass or green strips of paper (enough to fill all cartons)
What You Do
- Cut the top off milk carton so it has an open top.
- Paint the carton brown, white, grey or other bunny color—or cover the carton with construction paper.
- When the paint is dry, glue a cotton ball to one side of the carton to create a tail.
- Cut bunny ears from brown paper.
- Cut smaller ears from pink paper and glue them to the brown ears.
- Glue the brown-and-pink ears to the inside of the carton's front panel, being sure the ears stick up above the carton.
- Glue two googly eyes to the front of the carton.
- To create a nose, cut a circle from the pink construction paper and then glue it to the carton, under the eyes.
- To create whiskers, glue a few pieces of yarn near the nose.
- To create the bunny's feet, cut two ovals from brown paper and glue them to the carton's bottom, near the front.
- Fill the carton with plastic grass or strips of green paper.
- Optional: Leave the bunny baskets on the students' desks on the last day of school before Easter for the Easter Bunny to fill with treats!
