Bunny Baskets

Happy Easter!! I hope you enjoyed a wonderful day with your family!

This is just a quick post to share the "Bunny Baskets" we made this year in our classroom. These are so easy and cute!

Step 1: Ask for washed out, gallon milk jugs with the lid OFF. These can get soooo stinky if they have not been washed out and the lid is still on... Believe me, I have smelled my share over the years...Ewwwwww!

Step 2: Cut the front of the milk jug to make a space for the grass and candy. The jug has lines for you to use as a cutting guide.

Step 3. Have the students color and cut out the bunny pieces. We let them color however they want! We tell them that these are not real bunnies, so they can color them how they want. It can be interesting to see what they come up with, but they love it!

Step 4. Hot glue the bunny face to the top of the jug.

Step 5. Hot glue the feet to the bottom of the jug.

Step 6: Hot glue the paws to the sides of the jug.

Step 7. Let the students choose if they want a bow tie or a bow in the bunny's hair. Then, hot glue the bow.

Step 8. Hot glue a cotton ball ("tail") to the back of the jug.

Step 9. Add grass and candy.

I am so sorry I cannot share the copies of the the bunnies, but I have had them for 14 years and I don't know where they came from, originally. There are so many different pictures/copies of bunnies out there, I know these "Bunny Baskets" can easily be adjusted with your cute copies! 

I just wanted to shared another way to make a "Bunny Basket." Maybe this will make its way into your classroom, too! We love them! :)


  1. They look great! What a good way to recycle and create something new out of something that has already been used. Thanks for sharing!
