Supplies needed for your Pop Up Bunny Craft – Peeps inspired

We like to keep things simple.. so in essence:

  • some cardstock or even construction paper (though card better)
  • some ordinary printer paper
  • pens and markers for coloring
  • pencils for tracing
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • the template:

Visit my Teacher’s Pay Teacher’s Store for a printable worksheet and a choice of TWO templates – one where you cut out the paper chain in full (requires more cutting skills), the other, where you use a basic “half” template to trace and make your own paper chains. By purchasing this lesson plan activity pack, you are supporting the upkeep of this website 🙂 however, you can still get crafty and make this without the template. I will guide you through it all below!

How to make a pop up Easter Bunny card – Iconic Peeps Inspired!

Create your own Peeps Bunny template

As mentioned, you DO NOT have to use my activity pack on teacher’s pay teacher’s can instead draw your own template. Choose what works best for you! The video on autoplay at 32 sec shows you how to draw your own peeps bunny!

But will also talk you through it:

  • Find something round to race for the peeps tummy
  • Draw an oval on top of the peeps face
  • Make some big junkie peeps ears – they are probably as tall as the tummy is wide!

The icon peeps bunnies really is made up of simple shapes! Make them a perfect theme for this easy craft!

Once you have drawn it, cut it in half “down the middle” to make yourself a paper chain template. Done!
