craft stick easter character

Let your kids make a fun and festive craft stick bunny or chick to give or to keep! They can even write a message on the stick!

Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template; then cut out the pattern pieces.

Step 2

Paint a jumbo craft stick and set aside to dry:
- Bunny: paint it with White paint
- Chick: paint it with Soft Butter paint

Step 3

Trace the circle on white or yellow cardstock and cut out the shape. Set aside.

Step 4

Cut the larger bunny ears from white cardstock and the smaller bunny ear pieces from pink cardstock or cut the chick's beak from orange cardstock.

Step 5

Glue the head (circle) to the craft stick, then glue on the other pieces. Let dry.

Step 6

Glue the wiggle eyes in place and let the glue dry.

Step 7

Now, create and attach your character's features:
- For the bunny, cut two pieces of white chenille pipe cleaners to about 2" long and fold in half. Glue the folded end of each piece to his/her face where the nose will go, then glue on a pom-pom for the his/her nose.
- For the chick, glue yellow feathers to the his/her head.

Step 8

Wrap a chenille pipe cleaner around the craft stick several times, just under the head, to make arms.

Step 9

Finally, draw details onto the bunny's face with a black marker.
