This Easter bunny painting is just adorable! I love the different perspective of the bunny on an angle and looking up at the colorful Easter eggs.
A great multimedia art project that will have kids painting with acrylics, using a watercolor resist technique and drawing with sharpies. This is such a fun and unique Easter art project for kids to make!
For this project, I created 3 different printables to make this craft even easier for you. There is an Easter egg template and two bunny templates. One bunny that is just the outline with no face and a second bunny printable that has the face drawn in to make this Easter bunny painting easier for younger kids.
These templates are available to my email subscribers as part of my free printable resource library. Sign up to my email list below to gain instant access.

1. To get started you need to either draw your bunny in or print out your bunny template. There are two different bunny printable options, one has a face drawn in and one is blank for kids to draw in the face on their own. Kids can also draw the bunny themselves and not use a printable at all.
My daughter wanted to draw her bunny by herself. To help make this easier, use a large plastic lid as a guide for the bunny’s head like in the photo above. Then draw in the bunny’s ears. You want the ears to be quite big, one ear almost touches the top of the paper and the other ear goes right to the edge.
2. Next, kids can choose a color for their background. We used liquid watercolors for this step. I diluted the colors quite a bit and tested them on scrap paper first. You can also use a watercolor pan set (we have this set and love it) to paint the background.
Paint the background around your bunny with your watercolor paint. The background will show through the white paint for the bunny, so remind kids to go slow and just paint the background.
3. Once the background is dry, paint your bunny white. Let your bunny dry completely before moving on.
4. Using the light pink color, paint the inside of the bunny’s ears.
5. Now it’s time to draw in the bunny’s face. If kids are using the printable with the face drawn on, they can simply trace the face with a black sharpie.
If kids need to draw in the bunny’s face, have them draw it with light pencil first so they can erase if they need to. The bunny is looking up at the Easter eggs, so make sure to draw the eyes looking up like in the examples above.
My daughter needed some help for this step to draw in the eyes. Once they are happy with how the bunny’s face looks, they can trace over their pencil lines with a black sharpie.
The final step to the face is to paint in the nose with the light pink acrylic color.
6. Time to decorate and paint the Easter eggs! Using a white oil pastel, have kids draw patterns on the Easter egg printable. I included 4 Easter egg templates just in case they need an extra one.
Paint the easter eggs with watercolors. Again, we used liquid watercolors for this step but you can use any watercolors you have.
7. Once the Easter eggs are dry, kids can cut them out and glue them onto their Easter bunny painting.
These bunny paintings turned out so cute! I love how the Easter bunny is looking up at the colorful Easter eggs. My daughter really loved making this painting and can’t wait to hang it up for Easter.
