paper-plate-bunny-mask-1Holidays in general have away of sneaking up on me, even when I know they’re coming! Easter this year is in March which seems extra sneaky. Even though we’ll be celebrating in less than a month, it feels a little early for bunnies, chicks and eggs.

To help get in the spirit, Tilly (7), Griffin (4) and I made these fun paper plate masks that double as a fun toy and activity. They’ve been well loved around here by all so we will definitely be making more… hopefully with friends!

Keep scrolling for instructions and a template to make your own.


You’ll Need:

  • paper plates
  • popsicle sticks (or straws)
  • bunny ear, whisker and eye template or card stock
  • glue, glue dots +/or tape
  • x-acto knife and cutting mat or small scissors
  • pom-poms (optional)

Here’s How:

  1. Prep a work surface. Set out kid friendly glue options. We used glue dots for the nose and ears and glue sticks for the whiskers.
  2. Download template, print and cut out ears, circle and rectangles (or make your own out of colorful card stock). Cut rectangles into strips for whiskers.
  3. Cut plate in half and lay right side up. Use the circle template to trace eyes on the plate and then cutout.
  4. With plates right side down, let kids add whiskers, nose and ears.
  5. Once glue has dried, tape popsicle stick to the backside.

Have you started getting ready for Easter yet?!

XO, Rae
