Our amazing preschool recently sent home this quick, cute spring craft in our weekly “stay-at-home and we miss you” craft bag. The results are too great not to share!
Quick & Easy Instructions
Our craft was prepped for us. We were given a construction paper bunny cutout already taped to a black piece of construction paper. The tape that held the bunny to the black paper was painting tape, which made it quite easy to remove the bunny silhouette when we were finished; the painting tape kept the black paper from being ripped or damaged during removal of the bunny.
We used brightly colored chalkboard chalk to draw around the bunny. We made a pattern directly around the outline of the bunny and we used the side of the chalk to gently add color to the remaining background.
When we were done decorating with chalk, we removed the paper tracer bunny and for display purposes, we sprayed our finished artwork with a fixative.
This was a fast enough craft that our youngest stayed engaged, yet it allowed for enough creative expression that yet both our pre-k and elementary-aged children were quite proud of their spring bunny art project.
Don’t forget to display your child’s masterpiece!
Variation with Chalk Pastels
As I was searching around Pinterest, I found that Projects with Kids has a similar chalk pastel project and free printable bunny silhouette. I wouldn’t be surprised if our preschool was inspired by their chalk pastel project. So “hop” on over to their site for their detailed instructions and printable.
