Easy Origami Bunny

It’s Easter origami time. It’s been well over a year since we created this Easy Origami Rabbit! I wrote about it here on Red Ted Art at the time, but as a Pokemon Origami project, because I thought this bunny was perfect as a Pikachu craft too! Since then, a number of people have asked me to post the Origami Bunny version.

Such a cute Easter paper craft!

So here it is FINALLY. This really is a super simple origami project for beginners that even young children can master. My daughter recently made these adorable paper bunnies at school as part of a lesson about Japan. She then went home and did 10 more. She absolutely adores them (well, we’re big fans of bunnies in this house anyway!). This would make a great easy paper Easter craft for preschoolers.

*Which type of paper is best?

As this origami bunny is made from single folds, you can use most papers – from construction paper to printer paper, pretty patterned paper and origami paper!

However, origami paper is still best, as it tends to be a little thinner and therefore easier to fold and crease neatly. But any paper will do! Work with what you have.
