Bunny cutout painting for toddlers and preschoolers

This Easter bunny art activity worked for both my 2-year-old and 4.5-year-old, and it took just a few supplies and very little time to prepare.

Using scissors, I cut out the shape of a bunny. I placed the cutout on top of another sheet of paper and taped both onto the table. I provided my kids with paint, brushes, and glitter glue, and let them unleash their creativity. When they finished, we gently removed the stencil to reveal the beautiful Easter bunny they had painted onto the bottom sheet of paper!

Qu’a -t -il donc caché
dans un coin du verger ?
Un bel œuf tout blanc
blanc blanc blanc et rose
un bel œuf tout blanc
au ruban d’argent
Qui va le trouver
dans un coin du verger ?
C’ est toi bel enfant
aux joues blanches et roses,
c’est toi bel enfant
Tu seras content.
The Easter bunny hops, hops, hops,
The easter bunny is in the garden
What did he hide
in a corner of the orchard?
A beautiful white egg
white white white and pink
a beautiful white egg
with silver ribbon
who will find it
in a corner of the orchard?
You are beautiful child
with white and rosy cheeks,
you are beautiful child
You will be happy.
