Get your kids imaginations and the fun going with a homemade bunny puppet. You can easily pull these together. Or better yet, you can make these with the kids and make it a bonding activity with them.
What I love about these bunny puppets if you can make several of them in different facial expressions and of different colors.
My boys absolutely love playing with puppets. It’s such a joy to see where they take their imaginary play.

DIY Bunny Puppet
Step 1: Prepare all the materials needed:
- 4 pieces craft felt (yellow, blue, black and green)
- crochet thread
- big sewing needle
- hot glue
- pattern paper
Step 2: Draw a rabbit body that fits your whole hand. The thumb and the pinky finger will be the side hands of the bunny, while the index, middle and ring finger will form the body of the bunny. Cut the pattern afterwards.
Step 3: Using the pattern, cut two pieces of these in a blue craft felt.
Step 4: Cut a pair of bunny ears in the yellow craft felt.
Step 5: Sew the bunny ears on the green craft felt. Use a running stitch in a single thread.
Step 6: Cut the sides of the bunny ears and leave a small border on the edge.
Step 7: Align the blue craft felt body and sew them together using running stitch. Start on the side of it and make sire to leave the bottom part open.
Step 8: Upon reaching the topmost part of the body, insert the pair of bunny ears in between the top and sew them together with the body.
Step 9: Cut a pair of eyes, and mouth from the black craft felt and cut a nose from the yellow felt. Hot glue the facial features of the bunny on the middle topmost part of the body.
Step 10: Finished! You now have a charming bunny puppet ready for a show!
Step 11: Wear the bunny puppet. You can use this bunny puppet in an Easter show or just for some fun Spring play.
