Fold your paper in half to make a triangle.
Fold the creased side of the triangle up about 3/4″.
Fold one side toward the center, line up the points and crease.
Fold another side toward the center. Line up the points and crease.

Flip it over. Fold the top point inside to create the top of the rabbit’s head. You can see the rabbit’s head is ready now.
Let’s work on the rabbit’s body. Take another piece of paper. Please check the graphic, fold one side of the paper to make a triangle. Then line up the points and fold another side into a triangle.
Flip it over. Align with the point at the bottom, fold the paper to make a triangle. Then line up the points and fold another side into a triangle.

Roylco’s R15219 Elemetary Origami Animals pack provides different patterns and bright colors of origami paper. Contrasting colors are printed on the reverse side. Use the fun bright paper to create your own designs.
You can draw different cute facial features on the rabbit. Or you can use other craft paper to cut out the features and glue them on the rabbit.
Check out our blog post on “How to make origami carrots” and make a couple of carrots for your rabbits.
Display the rabbits somewhere festive, hide them around the house, or around the neighborhood where friends might find them.
Punch a hole at the back of the rabbit. Thread a piece of yarn with all the rabbits you make. Hang the rabbits from the ceiling or use them to decorate bulletin boards, doors and hallways!
Use white chalk to draw an outline of an egg on to Roylco’s R15213 Color Diffusing Paper . Then create some patterns to design your egg. I also wrote ” Happy Easter” in the middle of the egg. Encourage children to use their imagination to create their own designs.
Next, place the paper in the paint tray. Wet the R15213 Color Diffusing Paper, and use Roylco’s R54470 Junior Heart Paint Pipettes to drip liquid watercolor paint over top of the wet surface. Encourage children to experiment with different color palettes. It’s lots of fun for children to play with different colors and watch the colors flow and blend to create spectacular patterns and effects.. This is a great time for children to learn about color mixing, ask the children to discuss the effects of color mixing.
Let the artwork dry in the paint tray for couple of hours. You can also use a blow dryer to dry the artwork. You can see the result is unexpected and beautiful.
The color diffusing Easter egg artwork is almost ready. Once the paint is dry, you can cut the egg out and glue it on to the cardstock.
Take two pieces of metallic paper from Roylco’s R15409 Economy Metallic Paper Pack.
I choose dark green paper to make the pot, and the gold colored paper for the golden coins. Draw the shape of a pot at the back of the green paper, and cut it out. Make the coins by cutting out some circle shapes from the gold paper. Then glue the golden coins on to the green pot.
After you finish making a pot of gold, you can glue it to the end of the rainbow. Once complete, hang from ceilings, on bulletin boards or anywhere that could use some extra color.
You are the pot of gold at the end of my rainbow!

Weave a colorful Cross! • Begin by gently separating the weaving strips from the panel and loosening the die-cut slats of the cross. Allow four strips per cross.
• Start by weaving the vertical area of the cross. Insert a strip through the slats of the mat and weave in and out. When you have finished the first strip, start the second but alternate the “in and out” pattern each time. A wavy, checkerboard pattern will appear.
• Trim off the excess weaving strip lengths and use to complete the cross bar of the cross.Carefully glue or tape the ends down on the backside of the weaving mat. Notice the different color combination you have created on the reverse side.
Tape your finished cross to a window for inspirational window art or decorate a Bible classroom doorway. Use several Cross Weaving Mats to decorate a bulletin board for Easter!
Today, people of all backgrounds celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Some kids dress up in green and look for shamrocks, while others try to catch the elusive St. Patrick’s Day leprechaun.
The St. Patrick’s Day leprechaun is an Irish fairy. But he is quite different from other fairies, he looks like an old man and stands at around two feet tall. Dressed in green from head-to-toe, he carries a shillelagh, which he uses to scare anyone who tries to steal his gold.
We are going to show you how to create a leprechaun for St. Patrick’s Day.
Use the marker to trace the outline of the leprechaun.
You can use green crayon to color the suit, and use the light green crayon to color the vest. Use the marker to decorate the pants with different dots or patterns. As you can see we have a very basic look of a leprechaun.
4. Put the green metallic paper on top of the head and draw the outline of the hat. Then use the scissors to cut out the hat and glue it on the character.
5. You can glue the Googly eyes on to the face or draw the eyes. Use the gold metallic paper to cut out the mustache. Draw the boots and the bow tie on the green paper and cut them out.
6. Use a glue stick to glue the mustache, bow tie and boots to the character. Draw the eyebrows, and mouth on to the face. Do not forget to decorate his green hat, by adding a buckle band or shamrock.
The St. Patrick’s Day leprechaun is almost done. Remember a leprechaun spends his time searching for gold. So we need a pot of gold for him to carry. Use the green paper to create the golden pot. Next cut out some golden coins and glue them on to the green pot. You can also add a shamrock if you want.
Now fold back the leg flaps and stand him up for display.

We combined two of our products into one project with the Chinese Lantern craft posted on Wednesday. Learn more about this colorful craft using our video and description below!
The Color-In Lanterns can be used with our rubbing plates to decorate the various pieces. Simply slide any of our available patterned rubbing plates underneath the lantern pieces. Rub the side of a crayon onto the top of the lantern piece and watch as the patterns pop through! Combining colors together is half the fun with this project. While rubbing the pattern onto the lantern pieces with one crayon color, switch into a different color to create new effects!
The interior lantern tube can be embellished with stickers or other rubbing plate designs.
Hang your students’ lanterns together on a length of string. Tie the string across a classroom wall.
To see some of these ideas in action, view the video below!
