If you're looking for a fun affordable craft activity that children of all ages will enjoy, why not try making this cute little buggy for the Easter Bunny to ride in as he does his Easter egg deliveries? Created out of medium-sized cardboard boxes and a few miscellaneous craft materials such as acrylic paints, scrap paper, scissors and glue, an Easter Bunny buggy can be as simple or as fancy as your child's imagination will allow.
I found old cardboard boxes at a nearby hardware store that were perfect for this project, so if you don't have anything suitable at home, perhaps head down to your local retailer and see if they can help you. If my store is anything to go by, they'll be more than happy to pass a few on to you, free of charge.
Although this activity will be especially enjoyed by very little children, older youngsters and even adults can also have a load of fun elaborating on the basic concept with tinsel, glitter glue, stickers and ribbons. One of the great things about this project is how flexible it is. There is no right or wrong way to do it. Use this article as a guideline, but let your imagination go wild and see where it takes you. Whether your buggy is big, small or somewhere in-between, when the little trailer is full of Easter eggs, it looks gorgeous: a perfect homemade festive decoration. If your children have a plush toy rabbit, this can easily morph into the Easter Bunny persona, but be sure that you make the buggy just the right size for him to fit into.
