With Easter just around the corner I thought I would take the kids through a step by step drawing of an Easter bunny popping out of an egg. Here’s my Easter Bunny in an egg drawing.
This is a pretty simply drawing to do, and most ages can give it a go. Older kids can use the template and copy from that. You’ll need to break it up, and step through it with the younger ones. Once the drawing is complete, it’s simple and fun to paint and embellish.
This drawing could make a great Easter card for Nans and Grandads, or a cute painting for your kid’s room, or simply a painted gift for kids to take to school for a dear friend.
Easy Easter Bunny in an Egg Drawing
You will need
Resene Test pots in Cloudy, Tomorrow, Kingfisher Daisy, Colour me Pink, Black and Princess
Think A4 Paper
A permanent marker
1 small and 1 large pompom
2 black pipe cleaners
Water (For washing your brushes)
What to do
1. Start by drawing 3 zig-zags one third up the page.
2. Draw a slight curve from the top of your zig-zag to the bottom of the page.
3. Then draw a slight curve on the opposite side of your zig-zag. This will create the bottom of your egg.
4. Now draw a curve going upwards to about the middle of your egg. This is the beginning of the rabbit’s head.
5. To draw the first ear, draw a large petal shape, starting from the end of the curve.
6. Then draw another petal shape going out the other way. Try and keep the size and shape of the two ears roughly equal.
7. To complete the outline of the bunny draw a curve from the bottom of the second ear to the end of the zig-zag. And to finish the drawing, add two more smaller petals inside the larger petals, this makes the inside of the ears. Yay! You did it, now it’s time to paint and decorate.
8. First paint your background. I used Resene Tomorrow, which is a brilliant sky blue.
9. Paint the bottom of the egg, I used Colour me Pink.
10. For the inside of the ears I mixed Princess and Colour me Pink together. I quite like the combination.
11. Paint the bunny’s fur in. I used Cloudy, which is a nice moody grey, and works really well.
12. Now, let’s embellish the egg a little bit. Connect a peg to the large pompom and dip the end of the pompom into paint to print dots onto the egg. Use a nice contrasting colour from the pink, here I’ve used a purple to pop out the Easter egg.
13. Paint on two eyes in using the marker.
14. Cut up your black pipe cleaners to make whiskers, 3 on each side works well. And glue them onto the picture, with a pink pompom nose in the middle.
15. Finally, use the marker to draw a thick outline around the whole picture, including the inside of the ears, and the top of the egg. Then draw a tiny bunny mouth under the nose.
