If your kids like to craft, they will absolutely love this DIY foam mask activity! My kiddos love to make an Easter craft and take it over to their grandparents house on Easter Day. This year instead of the typical paint something cute or create a fun card, my son decided that he would like to make an Easter Bunny mask and wear it over to their house! He’s really into super heroes and has a few costumes all of which include…yep, superhero masks! I thought it was a great idea. Here is how you can make cute and easy Easter Bunny Masks with your kiddos!

How To Make Easter Bunny Mask:
My son decided on an Easter bunny mask and he made an Easter bunny rabbit mask for his sister too! We went with foam for the Easter bunny masks instead of paper because the foam is much sturdier and would hold up better with the fun that they’ll have wearing them around for awhile on Easter. We started with the white foam for the bunny face. I just sketched out a typical type face mask and cut out eye holes.
Once you have done this basic eye mask part, it is time to make the bunny ears! So we drew 2 ears on the white piece of foam that we had and 2 smaller parts of the ear on the pink foam to be the inside of the rabbits ears. Once those parts were drawn and cut out, we took our glue stick and glued the pink inside part of the ear to the white part. Then we taped the ears to the main part of the mask.
Once the ears were on, we needed some whiskers and my son wanted to go all out so he asked me to draw his rabbit a hat that he could wear! So we drew thin whiskers with a grey marker and cut out a hat on the blue foam that we had!
Once the hat was cut out, we glued it on and the Easter bunny mask was all ready! Then we did a pink hair bow for his sister’s bunny mask.
