Easy Easter Crafts for Kids: Salt Dough Bunny

Sharing is caring!

There are so many fantastic Spring and Easter Nursery Rhymes for toddlers, but one of my favorites is 5 Little Easter Bunnies. In this spring-themed counting rhyme for toddlers and preschoolers, you can practice counting backward from 5.

One of the best ways for children to connect with the rhymes and numbers especially with toddlers is to get creative and these 5 little bunny salt dough decorations are perfect for some springtime and easy Easter crafts for kids.

Make them together and paint then hot glue a magnet to the back and you can use them whilst you sing the rhyme together.

How to Make Easy Easter Crafts for Kids Salt Dough Bunny

There are two different salt dough recipes – these Easy Easter Crafts for Kids were made using the classic salt dough recipe which is perfect for when you have a lot of time. However, if you need to speed things up and then switch out the kitchen ingredients for those in this microwave salt dough recipe and follow the step-by-step instructions carefully. If you do it should take around 3 minutes to dry the bunnies and for them to be ready for painting.

  1. Add the flour, water and salt to a mixing bowl.
  2. Mix and then knead the dough until smooth.Easy Easter Craft to accompany the Nursery Rhyme 5 Little Easter Bunnies. Create 5 Little Easter Bunny Salt Dough Decorations and sing along.

  7. Using a knife add some details – we separated the ears of the bunnies as well as legs so that they had a little more form making it easier for toddlers to decorate.
  8. Place the bunnies onto a lined baking tray.
  9. Dry in the oven for around 3 hours at your oven’s lowest temperature (150F on our oven).
  10. Leave over night and then paint the following day.Easy Easter Craft to accompany the Nursery Rhyme 5 Little Easter Bunnies. Create 5 Little Easter Bunny Salt Dough Decorations and sing along.
