Supplies To Make Wooden Easter Bunny
How To Paint Wooden Easter Bunny
- Let your child paint the bunny one color and using the thicker brushes. This part is easy for them because it doesn’t entail any specific drawing. Let dry before you start showing them how to make shapes. I have two grandkids and each pick their own color. I gave them a thick artist brush for this part.
2. After the bunny dries. I paint some simple ears on the wooden bunny. In this part they just fill the ears in with the same color I use. You can use any color to paint for the ears, nose and other features of the bunny. The eyes are just little dabs of paint in any color.
3. It’s important after each drawing that it dries before you attempt the next shape on the bunny face. That way the kids can’t mess what’s already been painted.
4. For the nose we made an orange triangle and for the mouth the letter w. It’s a great way to teach them about shapes and letters. For the tummy the number 0. I created the shape and they filled it in.
5. Here is another version of the bunny in green. Here I they painted little stick shapes for feet and hands. Added a carrot shape on the tummy.
