3d Easter Animal Craft – Bobble Friends

Bobble Head Easter Bunny
Cute 3d Easter Animal Craft to print and make!

We have a fabulous STEAM project for you and your little ones: cute little bobble head paper toys which you can assemble yourself:

  • a bunny,
  • a sheep and
  • a baby chick.

It is a fabulous project not only because bunny, chick and sheep bobble their heads but it allows to explore the topic of Easter whilst developing fine motor skills.

Educational elements to this cute Easter Printable

We love this STEAM Easter Bobble Friends Paper Craft Project for a number of reasons:

  • You get to spend time colouring and crafting with your kids.
  • You can introduce and explore topics such as Easter traditions and how Easter is celebrated differently or similar in various countries.
  • You can introduce the concept of primary and secondary colours or that of warm & cold colour families while colouring.
  • They are fabulous for fine motor skills (e.g. colouring, cutting out the body parts, making the accordion neck).
  • The accordion fold neck and 3d aspect of this little Easter craft, makes this a great little STEAM project looking at basic 3d shape making and exploring the properties of paper when folded into an accordion.
  • They make wonderful Easter decorations.

3.) Let’s craft the neck for the bunny: Grab the two long strips of paper and glue both ends together at a 90° angle. Wait until dry. Then fold the bottom strip over the top strip of paper. The strips of paper remain at a 90° angle. Keep on folding the bottom strip of paper over the top one until the end of each strip.
