Draw and cut two rabbit ears from white paper. Color the center of the ears with pink marker. Glue these near the top of half an egg.
Glue wiggle/google eyes below the ears, and a small white pom pom nose below the eyes.
Use fine tip marker to add eyelashes and whiskers.
Glue on a white pom pom tail.
To play, set up a small ramp. Place the rabbits at the top of the ramp and slide a marble under each racing rabbit. On the start signal, release the rabbits and watch them glide down the ramp toward the finish line at the bottom.

The other day when I was doing my shopping at Walmart, I happened to see that they now sell a chocolate brown paint for plastic. It is called Krylon Fusion's paint. So I painted a dozen of my empty plastic eggs. It was wonderful they came out looking just like they were made of chocolate. The eggs my mom bought had beautiful sculptured flowers and non-pareils and birds and butterflies made out of frosting so I tried to make mine look like they just came out of the chocolate shop using ribbons and string beads and ribbons flowers.
My husband made me a dozen little Shepherd's hooks to hang them from out of old wire hangers that my sister gave me. I will also give the instructions for making these. I made a base of Styrofoam and Easter grass to put the Sheppard's hooks into. I made mine long and skinny to fit my dinning room table, but these could also be put into a vase or an Easter basket. The eggs could also be hung on an Easter tree.
Time to complete: 1 hour for eggs to dry 2 hours to decorate
Spray paint the eggs brown. Decorate any way you like with the ribbons, string beads, and flowers. The eggs that I bought had two little holes in the end of them that I strung some crochet thread through so I could hang them.
Glue Easter grass to the Styrofoam.
I like this idea a lot.
Cover the cardboard tube with white paper for the clown's body. Draw and cut arms and hands from white paper. Decorate these with marker.
Make simple Easter egg picks from plastic eggs, straw and ribbon. I'm using small plastic eggs with regular size straws. I think if you are using larger eggs, you might want to use a sturdier material, like a wood dowel.
A colorful, fun craft just in time for spring! Glue the halves of the plastic egg together, then decorate it with pieces of ribbon and fabric trim. Cut an additional piece of ribbon and glue it in a loop to the top of the egg for a hanger.
