Easy Kids Easter Craft

Really fun and cute card with the front decorated with a bunny face. The face is made from the child's hand-print. Then embellished with wiggly eyes, markers and cotton ball to make it come alive. A clear cellophane bag holds chocolate dipped pretzel rods that have been rolled in sprinkles.

This Easy Kids Easter Craft is a wonderful way to help your children remember others and not just what they are getting from the Easter Bunny.

What makes this Bunny Card so sweet and extraordinary, is that it captures a moment in time as the Bunny’s face is made from your child’s hand print. You can help them write, or they can draw a picture, to a loved one, or a person who could use a little special attention.  It will surely brighten everyone’s day.

The pretzel rods are a scrumptious treat!  

The pretzels can be covered in white, milk or dark chocolate, then in a so many options of toppings it would be hard to stop.  Your family, coworkers, neighbors, everyone will want to receive these treats….without, or without, a Bunny note:)

You could also use finely chopped nuts, other types of sprinkles, heath candy bits, so many options would be mighty tasty here!


Lay the coated rods onto the waxed paper or parchment; which I prefer actually, until the chocolate is set.

Place set pretzels in the cellophane bags, and tie up with the ribbon, or ribbons if you want to get extra creative.
