Crafting Fun Letters (And Animals!)

This bunny is a cute craft that everyone will love, and it's a great way to teach children about words that begin with the letter “B,” such as “Bunny.” Get them interested in talking about the letter “B.” See if they can come up with other words that start with the letter “B.” It also exercises their basic motor skills while building the craft.

Materials and Supplies

The supplies you will need to make the bunny craft are:

  • Construction paper in pink, black, and white
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Black marker (fine point)
  • Small paintbrush
  • Googly eye (25mm or any size preferred)
  • Black glitter
  • Cotton ball

Step 1: Creating The Letter "B"

On pink construction paper use a pencil to draw out the letter “B”. It is always wise to draw with a pencil first so you can erase any mistakes and perfect the letter to how you want it to look. Trace over the pencil with a black, fine point marker so you can easily see the letter.

Cut along the line with scissors (shown in figure A).

When cutting out the two centerpieces of the letter “B”, first pinch the center of the top piece. Snip it with scissors to make a small cut (shown in figure B). Insert your scissors and cut up to the black line. Follow the line around until the first piece is completely cut out. Repeat the process with the bottom section of the letter.

Step 2: Creating The Teeth

To make the teeth for the bunny use the white construction paper. Draw the first tooth in a rectangular shape approximately 1 ½” inches in length. Use the edge of the paper to create straight angles. Follow the shape of the tooth to duplicate the bunny’s second tooth. The length of the teeth will allow enough space for gluing the teeth to the bunny.

Cut the teeth along the lines that are drawn to create two separate teeth. Another option is to draw one tooth as mentioned above. Then cut out the tooth and use it as a pattern to trace out another tooth. Cut out the second tooth for a smiley bunny.

Step 3: Making The Nose

Every bunny has a cute twitchy nose. Making his nose requires the black construction paper. Using the corner of the paper, draw a fat teardrop shape to resemble a nose. Make sure to use a pencil when drawing the nose as pencil shows up best on black construction paper.

Next, cut out the nose in a circular motion following the pencil line. Be careful to leave the corner of the paper.

Now add a dot of glue in the center of the nose. Put enough glue to spread a thick layer.

Take a small bristle paintbrush and spread the glue across the nose. Using a paintbrush will ensure a nice even spread. Be sure to spread it all the way to the edges.

Shake black glitter over the glue. Be sure to cover the nose completely with a thick layer of glitter for that extra sparkle. Shake off excess glitter and set aside to dry.

Wow now that's a sparkly nose, your bunny sure to have lots of flare.

Step 4: Creating the Whiskers

No bunny nose is complete without wispy whiskers. Using black paper cut three to four thin strips across the top of paper horizontally. Make them thin enough to look like whiskers but not too thin that they will easily tear. Gather the whiskers together and make them even on both sides as possible.

Fold them in half to create an open loop on one side (figure A). Inserting the scissors into the loop cut the whiskers in half (figure B). This will create the right length and amount of whiskers for the bunny. There should be a total of 6 – 8 whiskers in total.

*Note: When assembling the whiskers place a large dot of glue down on the letter "B" where the nose will be placed. Lay 3 - 4 whiskers laying to the left and the other 3 - 4 whiskers to the right. Place the nose on top of the whiskers pointed side back. Press all parts down to lock them together. This will be done when assembling all the parts of the bunny.

Step 5: Creating The Lashes

With the same sheet of black paper that the whiskers were made from the eyelashes can be created. Draw a triangular shape about 1” across and 2” long. Lengthwise cut thins strips, as you did the whiskers, only halfway down. Be sure you do not cut the lashes all the way across. Curl the tips of the lashes forward with a pencil to give that flirty look.

Step 6: Creating The Bunny's Ears

To make the ears for the bunny take another piece of pink construction paper and place it about 1” underneath the top of the letter “B”. Be sure to have at least 1” of space underneath to allow room for gluing. Draw the shape of the ear in pencil first to allow for mistakes. Drawing the ear on the letter “B” helps to get the correct size and shape of the ear desired. I tapper my first ear towards the bottom and brought it to a point on top.

To give my bunny character I drew my second ear curved. Keep in mind that even though it’s curved it should still be the right size and shape to match the other ear. Once the ears are to the desired size and shape, outline them in a black marker for easier viewing.

Cut out both ears carefully along the black line. Be sure to leave the 1” of space to leave a tab for gluing.

Step 7: Assembling The Bunny "B" Bunny

Assemble the bunny. Place the letter “B” down and glue all pieces in place as seen in the photo. Don’t forget your googly eye and cotton ball for the tail. Glue the eye on top of the eyelash half that is not cut. Glue the cotton ball to the back of the bunny to give a fluffy tail.

*Note before gluing: If creating more than one bunny for multiple children use your larger pieces as templates to create more pieces. The letter “B”, ears, and teeth can easily be duplicated. Simply trace each piece and cut them out. Do not cut the eyelash strips if using as a template. Make as many rectangles as needed, then cut them into lashes. Another trick is to stack a few pieces of paper and cut more than one out at a time. This will save you lots of time!

        Thanks, Lynsey. These types of crafts are super fun and easy to do. I work with medically fragile children with learning disabilities and these crafts really help them be involved and learn about the letters. Even my deaf/blind children enjoy making the crafts! Its really great to see these kids have fun while learning.
