The best thing about doing arts & crafts with my daughter is the time that we get to spend together. My daughter says to me all the time. “Mama, I have fun with you. I like making projects with you.” This melts my heart. I love doing crafts with her as well. She is becoming so creative & is learning so much from our craft time together. When I told her today that we were going to make bunnies out of pasta shells, she cheered loudly & pulled her safety stool right up to our work space. So began this evening’s craft.
Pasta Shell Easter Bunny Craft
What you will need:
Jumbo pasta shells (3 for each bunny made)
Spaghetti (just one strand)
Paint the inside of the shells in pink. These shells will be the ears.
Paint the outside of the shell in the color that you choose for your bunny’s ears. I chose gray, Mai wanted purple ears.
Paint a shell for the head.
Paint a strand of spaghetti in black. Let it all dry.
Paint a nose in the middle of the face.
Add in the eyes & mouth.
Break the spaghetti into small pieces for the whiskers & glue on to the face.
Glue the ears into place from the back using a hot glue gun. Use a generous amount of glue to secure. (Sorry kids, hot glue is only for us grown-ups)
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
These look fun – think my 8 year old could do herself.
They came out very cute. My daughter was very proud of her creations.
Adorable and loved those cute, little bunny faces!! 😉
Thank You Janine. Mai got a little overzealous and painted half a box of shells. Lol! Now we need to figure out what to do with the rest of them.
This is so cute and creative!
