Oh yes, it is that time of year again (or at least it is for me.. I simply CANNOT wait) – Easy Paper Bunny Origami time!!!!!!! I love Spring and Easter Crafts.. and all the lovely DIYs associated with this time of year – from Easter Baskets to egg decorating ideas, to chick crafts and OF COURSE bunny crafts. Now we have made an Easy Origami Bunny before – it is super popular, the kids LOVE it and it is oh so easy. Today’s paper bunny, is just a **tiny** but more skilled, but still a great Origami for Beginners project!
The first bunny was “just the head” – adorable and cute, perfect as easy Easter decor or for sending an Easter Card. Today’s bunny would make a lovely table decoration, with some chocolate Easter eggs scattered about. I love that we have “two versions” of the same rabbit origami – one standing paper rabbit and one crouching paper rabbit. Make the one you prefer.. or like us, make both.
Be warned though.. they are highly addictive and you may end up with a whole paper BUNNY family!
Easy Paper Bunny – Materials

Easy Paper Bunny Origami
Though we do do a LITTLE cutting for this paper bunny, I still think it is classed as origami for kids (some purists will say “no cutting” and “no pens” allowed) – however when teaching kids basic origami folds, this is a great project for understanding some basic shapes, patterns and fold concepts. So I hope you will agree that this is still a great origami project for younger kids, but those younger kids who want to learn a new fold.
Hope you like these adorable bunnies as much as we do. I think I have made about 12 in one go now!!! Very addictive!
And once your are done with your bunny, why not have a browse of these
