Easy Easter Treat Cups

Bunny Treat Cups, Easter Treat Cups, Easter Bunny Treat Cups, Easter Treat Cups, Easter Crafts, Bunny CraftsEaster has always been a favorite holiday of mine. I love the bunnies and the colors. It also means that spring is here and summer is right around the corner. The kids were just home for spring break a few weeks ago. It still hasn’t warmed up too much here and there really isn’t any “spring” weather. It’s kind of a bummer. I thought a fun way to get ready for not only spring, but for Easter would be to do some simple crafts with the kids. Even though my kids are 10 and 13, that doesn’t mean that craft time isn’t fun. It’s a wonderful bonding time for us as a family. In addition to that, this is a craft that no matter what ages your kids are, this is a simple and easy craft that ANY age can enjoy!

  • White Paper Cups
  • White Construction Paper
  • Pink Construction Paper
  • Wiggle Eyes
  • White Pipe Cleaners
  • Pink Pom Pom (1/2″ size)
  • Easter Filling (we used paper filling)
  • Plastic Eggs
  • Scissors (child friendly are best)
  • School Glue or Glue Stick
  • Hot Glue & Hot Glue Gun

Assembly of these treat cups is pretty simple and even the younger kids can get into this project. Here’s the simple steps to creating your neat little Easter or Bunny Treat Cups:

  1. Starting with your white construction paper, cut out 2 ears for your bunny.
  2. Using the pink construction paper, cut out 2 smaller ears that will be the inside of the bunny’s ears.
  3. Apply the pink inside to the white ears using your school glue or glue stick.
  4. Affix your ears to the INSIDE of your cup with a small dab of hot glue.
  5. Take your white pipe cleaner and cut it into 4 smaller pieces, these will be your whiskers.
  6. Apply a dab of hot glue to the front of the cup where you will place the whiskers and nose.
  7. Set the whiskers in place.
  8. Use another small dab of hot glue on top of the whiskers to affix the nose.
  9. Just above the nose, add 2 more small dots of hot glue for your eyes.
  10. Add filling to your treat cup and enjoy!

Once you have your treat cup ready, you can fill smaller plastic eggs with treats like candy, wishes, compliments, fun trinkets, baked goodies or anything else you may want. Add the plastic eggs (or maybe you want to put cookies or something in that doesn’t require the plastic eggs.. that’s fine too) and you have a quick and easy little craft that is not only fun for the kids to make, but even funnier for them to give! Bring a few to church for the elderly, give one to grandma or grandpa, maybe your child has a classroom party and these would be the perfect way to give out a treat for the special day, add your baked goods to them for a holiday bake sale.. the possibilities are endless. This is a simple and fairly cheap craft that the kids will enjoy making over and over again. Feel free to get creative, give your bunny a neck tie, bow, maybe some earrings. These really can be for all ages just by adding a few special things to them.

This craft can also be adapted to other animals or holidays. As with all crafts, let you and your child’s creativity shine. There are so many options! Check back in a couple days and check out our Spring Bugs! Another fun, simple and unique craft for all ages!

Happy Spring! Happy Easter!

    Those are TOO adorable. I think they would be a great little piece to add to the Easter dinner table with maybe everyone’s napkin, fork and knife in it? I will have to add that to my to-do list for the week!
