Easter Activity Book

I was making activity pages for a quiet book and this is one idea I thought of for a 'holiday' quiet book. I got a package of 50 foam sheets at Walmart for $5.00! They're a good size to use for quiet books.

I like to use super glue because it bonds strong and fast, but always be careful with super glue. First, I cut out the shapes I need; a yellow rectangle and then cut out "doors" like a cabinet and I super glued two small rectangle door knobs on the cabinet doors, a pink rectangle and cut slits out, like curtains and I drew a black curtain rod with permanent sharpie marker. I cut a "bush" shape from green, and I drew leaf shapes with green permanent sharpie, and a brown rectangle for a door. Next, I found a bunny head template on the web and cut that out. I drew in the pink ears, cut a half circle shape in red for the mouth, and I cut out a little rectangle and slits in black for the nose and whiskers. The whiskers were a bit tricky to glue on because they're so thin, so be careful. Using a hole punch, I punched two blues for the eyes, and I glued on the face. I also cut out a basket shape and drew in details.


Now you're ready to finish. Glue one side of the brown rectangle door and stick it on the white background. Draw the rest of the details and punch out a brown circle with the hole punch, cut it in half and glue it as the door knob. Glue the perimeter of the cupboard on the white sheet, careful to avoid the doors so they'll open. Glue two sides of the bushes onto the white background, leaving enough space so you can lift back the other corner of the bushes to hide the egg. Glue the top of the curtains to the white background. Glue on the basket and the bunny head at the bottom.

Remember to leave enough space at the top of the white background to write the words with a black permanent Sharpie: "Help the Easter Bunny find all the eggs and put them in his basket!" As a last detail, I cut out the shape of a lamp and glued it near the bottom, above the basket, and hid an egg up in there too, but I'm thinking it is kind of small for little fingers to get the egg out. Try it, see if you like that idea.

I found a template for an egg on the internet and cut about 7 out of white and decorated them with permanent Sharpies. Now, hide the eggs behind the curtains, the bushes, the door, and the cupboard. I also found that another one will fit behind one of the bunny's ears! I'm just going to punch some holes in the side of the foam and put it in my book with the rest of the activities! Later, I'll post my other quiet book activities. Happy Easter!

Sorry, I meant to add that I was going to put some little dots of velcro on the basket and the back of the eggs and stick them to the basket that way.
