Friday is my favorite day of the week because it is Family Night at my house and I know we are in store for lots of laughs and good times. Eating, playing games, crafts and even a movie our all part of our weekly family tradition. I love turning off all the phones, social media and worries of the world and just 100% focusing on our time with one another. Part of my job as mom is to make sure I create an entire night all around family fun and an important part of that is activities! Since my kids love crafting I created an Easy Peter Rabbit Bunny craft and wanted to share it with you! What’s more fun than making cute little paper plate Peter Rabbit Bunnies while eating, snacking and watching a movie together? Nothing!
First up on our list for family night is craft time! Our household loves crafting, especially quick and easy little projects! Its very easy to make a paper plate Peter Rabbit Bunny and requires very little skill and supplies. My 5 and 6-year-old love making them especially around Easter time! Since the fun family movie Peter Rabbit was just released at Walmart and we are proud owners of the DVD, I wanted to make Peter Rabbit Bunnies with the kids while we watched the movie for family night!
I never forget the snacks during crafting and my kids love popcorn and would eat it all day if I let them so it is a must-have! Orville Redenbacher is our go to because it is the only leading brand of microwave popcorn with no Artificial Preservatives, Flavors, or Dyes in any of its products and it tastes just like we are at the movie theater!
As mom, you have got to have all your bases covered and snacking on something easy like popcorn will keep the kids satisfied and on track with their crafts until its time to eat dinner!
Easy Peter Rabbit Bunny Craft
- Any color pom pom’s
- White Cotton Balls
- googly eyes
- paper plates – 1 Big and 1 small
- 1 piece of white cardstock
- Pink Streamers or pink paper or bunny decorations (we used little bunny bags to cut out)
- Paper Towels and Orville Redenbacher popcorn for snacking
1. Take 2 paper plates. If you have 1 size then cut one of them in a smaller circle than the other for the bunny head.
2. Make the bunnies face on the small plate by gluing on the googly eyes and a pom pom for the nose. Take the sharpie and draw a mouth with cute little whiskers as seen in picture. Be creative!
3. Attach the small plate (head) to the large plate (body) with the glue. Press down until it is attached and dry. As it is drying, glue on a cotton ball for the tail and decorate the body if you like with more pom pom’s, cotton balls or markers.
4. Take the white paper and cut out the bunny ears. Then using the pink streamers or paper, cut 2 smaller ears to overlay. You can’t go wrong on ear size. Glue the pink on top of the white ears. Lastly glue the ears on the bunny head. Press down firmly until mostly dry.
5. Enjoy your easy Peter Rabbit Bunny paper plate craft. Bonus Tip- Kids can make and give their rabbit to someone special for Mother’s Day or Easter!
Don’t Stop There! Family night is not over!
Since my kids jump from activity to activity, even on Family Night, crafting doesn’t last long because the kids are ready for dinner! I like to have all my bases covered on Family Night so I had the Peter Rabbit Blu-Ray + DVD Combo ready to go and let the kids dine on their Kid Cuisine while watching the movie!
Only on Family Night will I let them watch something on TV (family movie) while we eat. They think it’s so cool and it’s super easy on me to just pop in the All Star Chicken Breast Nugget Meal from Walmart and be done! My kids love Kid Cuisine meals and even usually eat the full servings of veges they come with!
I like knowing they will get satisfied with these little meals that even come with pudding as a dessert and not having to cook gives me more time with the family! Now that is the topping on the cake!
Most importantly, enjoy your Family Night Fun and I hope you can make it a weekly tradition just like us! You only get a little bit of time with your kids, make them count by creating memories with them that will last a lifetime!
