Here are three adorable Easter craft ideas that are nice and easy for the preschoolers.

2. When the glue has dried, paint the spoons white, and sprinkle with glitter (optional).
3. Paint the inside of the ears pink.
4. Glue on 2 googly eyes and a pink pom-pom for the nose.
5. Tie a thin ribbon in a bow just below the ears.
6. Glue or tape on a safety pin to the back and give to someone special to wear for Easter!
Paper Plate Easter Bunny:
1. On a large paper plate, decorate a bunny face - googly eyes, a pink pom-pom for the nose, and pipe cleaners or yarn for the whiskers.
2. Cut a small paper plate in half.
3. Glue each half on top of the bunny's head for ears.

Optional: You could also cover the bunny's face with cotton balls, to make it more 3D! :)
3D Easter Bunny:
