Easter Rabbits standing holding hands

This is the 

#20 Vidcast "Easter Rabbits" 

(in the UK & USA)

A 2019 post

Tuesday 19th March 2019

The Easter Bunny (also called the Easter Rabbit or Easter Hare) is a folkloric figure and symbol of Easter, depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs.

"Originally the "Easter Hare" played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient in behaviour at the start of the season of Eastertide."

The Easter Bunny is sometimes depicted with clothes and carries coloured eggs in his/her basket, candy, and sometimes also toys to the homes of children.

Today's creations are "Easter Rabbits" that link together, standing up, holding hands.

If you're having problems viewing the Vidcasts try these links - 

Let's take a look at the steps to make the "Easter Rabbits"...

"Easter Rabbits", you'll need...
- paper, glue (Prit stick), scissors, card & pencil

Step 1 : Draw a large Rabbit shape on card and cut it out. You'll be using this as a template for each "Easter Rabbit" you decide to make (3 minimum)
 you can make more templates as long as the hands and arms are in the same place. Can you spot any differences with Granddads effort?

Step 2 : Cut 3 "Easter Rabbits" out (more if you want too).

Step 3 : Draw and colour the front of each rabbit; it's up to you to decide on colours, clothes, faces etc.

Step 4 : Draw and colour the back of each rabbit; it's important your choices match the Front.

Step 5 : Once Completed, link them together using the slots on the rabbits hands. NOTE: the slots alternate, one open at the bottom and the other at the top.

Step 6 : That's it, should look something like this! 

NOTE: You can have each "Easter Rabbits" connected as a wonderful Easter Circle (perhaps around some Easter Eggs) or, with care a long zig-zag line on a shelf, window-sill or somewhere similar.

I hope your children and/or Grandchildren like making the "Easter Rabbits" and find the Step-by-Step useful and enjoyable to make.

Ready to make one, two or all three yourself? 

Let’s do it.

If you have a go at creating your own "Easter Rabbits" do share your feedback, positive and/or negative, in the comments. 

It would also be nice to see what your children and/or Grandchildren thought about creating their own "Easter Rabbits"


Thank You!
