I brought lots of fun Easter colors to class and the kids painted the bodies whichever color they chose. Some chose to do the head a different color than the body, which turned out really cute!
For the bunny I found really fun extra fluffy pipe cleaners. You string two pipe cleaners (side by side) through the body and then fold the ears into shape and the feet into shape. (So one pipe cleaner is a foot and ear and the other pipe cleaner is the other foot and ear. Does that make sense?). We did glue tiny pom pom tails on too. The kids drew the face on with paint pens.
For the chick you fold a regular pipe cleaner in half and thread it through the body from the top and put a feather in the little top loop and pull it tight. Then you shape the bottom of the pipe cleaner into the two feet. The kids did the eyes with paint pens and the beak with a Sharpie.
