CARDBOARD TUBE BUNNY RABBIT FAMILY.

They’re so cute, and cuddly, and colorful… ? Well, this cardboard tube bunny rabbit family is anyway! These bunnies don’t have to be an exclusive Easter craft but their pretty colors remind me of jelly beans! Using cardboard tubes from paper towels or bathroom tissue, you can make this fun and bright family of bunny rabbits with your kids! A fun and easy recycled kid’s craft!

CARDBOARD TUBE BUNNY RABBIT FAMILY

Some people are uncomfortable using bathroom tissue rolls, especially those in a day care setting. Paper towel cardboard tubes are the same diameter, just longer, and work equally well. You can simplify your cardboard tube bunny rabbit family depending on the age group of your children.

To simplify some of these steps, skip the apron on mama bunny and the buttons on daddy, and you can also use pink felt triangles (or construction paper) for the noses. Wiggle eyes will work too instead of a marker. I do use a hot glue gun in this project, so please supervise children closely or use a quick drying glue such as Beacon’s instant This cardboard tube bunny rabbit family is such a cute way to reuse cardboard tubes. I have a lot more cardboard tube crafts for kids and also animal crafts for kids that are fun to craft up with your kiddos as well!
