Rabbit Tissue Paper Craft for Kids

Materials for a tissue paper bunny craft


  • Bunny printable (available for download below)
  • Tissue paper (grey, brown, or Easter colors)
  • Cotton balls (or white pom poms)
  • Glue
  • Scissors


First, download and print out the bunny printable (free download available below). I included both a small version and a bigger version of the rabbit, so you can pick which size you want depending on how big your cotton balls are.

Cut your tissue paper into small squares. You can either use traditional bunny colors, like grey or brown, or you can use pastel colors if you’re making an Easter bunny craft.

Cover a small section of the bunny in glue. Crinkle up the tissue paper and stick it to the glue on the bunny.

Continue covering sections of the bunny with glue and sticking tissue paper to it until the bunny is completely covered.

Take a cotton ball and place a dab of glue on it. Stick the cotton ball to the bottom of the bunny to act as the bunny’s tail.

Now you can leave your rabbit craft like this or cut it out for a more finished look.

And that’s it! Your cute rabbit craft for kids is complete and ready to enjoy!
