Get a bag of cotton puffs at the Dollar Store and cut them in half to make the bunny. Or use the puffs whole and make the bunny really fluffy!

Toddlers would be able to help, as they can add the cotton balls to the bunny.

How to Make a Paper Plate Pop Up Bunny.

1. Draw the easy pattern on a paper plate as shown.

Draw the ears and feet on the part of the plate you’ll be cutting off.

Cut out the bunny body as shown.

Cut out all the other parts.

If you are going to make a lot of bunnies, leave one plate like this for a pattern, and trace it on the rest of the plates.

2. Open the cotton puffs bag and pull out several cotton balls.

3. Spread a small amount of glue in the center of the bunny.

Glue a cotton ball half in the middle of the bunny. Be sure to have the pretty side of the ball up.

2. Spread more glue around the cotton ball and start adding more balls around the first one,

until you have the whole bunny covered with cotton puffs.

Let the glue dry. I left mine overnight before finishing the bunny.

3. Using the pink marker, add color to the ears and feet as shown.

Draw a few lines on the feet to show bunny toes.

4. Cut a pink nose out of craft foam or card stock.

5. Cut two large white shapes for eyes and add two smaller black circles to them.

6. Glue or tape ears to the back of the bunny’s head.

7. Fold the bottom of the plate back slightly on the fold line so you can see where it is.

Put a piece of packing tape across the fold to make it sturdier.

I outlined the tape with a pen so you can see where it is.

8. Attach the bunny’s eyes and nose to his face.

9. Attach the feet to the bottom of the bunny, turning them slightly out.

10. Gently fold the bottom of the plate to the back of the bunny.

Push the bunny back slightly so he will stand, but don’t crease the fold.

Tips.

To make both ears and feet the same size, you can draw one ear and one foot and then trace them for the other ear and foot.
