Easter Bunny Garland Activity For Kids

easter bunny wall garland diy activity for kidsI made this DIY Easter bunny garland activity with my toddler and she loved it! I shared how to create this DIY on my Instagram stories the other week and it was a huge hit with everyone. Making your own decor is so rewarding and sentimental, and your kids will love it even more knowing they helped make it with their favorite person.

This Easter bunny garland is an incredibly easy and a very fun activity for kids. My toddler did everything herself except cut out the bunny shapes and use the glue gun – I even let her do the glitter, knowing full well I would end up with a glittery mess afterward. Anything to create those magical memories while we’re staying at home!

Follow my tutorial on Insta if you’re a visual person, or go through the steps below for how to create this garland yourself 🙂 Continue reading
