Make a Paper Plate Rabbit with Us!

This week we are reading The Rabbit Listened! In honor of our book, today we're making our own paper plate rabbit! Make one with us...
Creative Clubhouse KIDS

What You’ll Need

  • Paper Plate
  • Colorful Paper
  • Crayons
  • Colorful Pom-Pom
  • Pencil
  • Safety Scissors
  • Tape
  • Double Edge Tape
  • Glue

This project requires cutting a few times. If you do not have safety scissors, make sure a grownup is helping you cut! 


What To Do

  1. We’re going to draw the rabbit’s face first! Draw two eyes in the center of the plate!
  2. Put a piece of double edge tape under the eyes and stick on your pom pom!
  3. Draw a line under the pom pom and make two curves for the rabbits mouth
  4. Color in your rabbit! We picked shades of pink and purple, but you can choose any colors you’d like!
  5. Draw two big curves for the ears with a little curve in the middle, then color the smaller curve in with your favorite color (we chose pink)
  6. Cut out your bunny ears!
    If you don’t have safety scissors, ask a grownup for help!
  7. Using tape or glue, attach your rabbit ears to the back of the paper plate, towards the top above your rabbit’s eyes.

And now you have your Paper Plate Rabbit!
