    Using two paper plates cut one in half to use as ears, decorate the ‘EARS” with coloured paper or colour them with crayons etc. Glue the ears to the other plate and make whiskers from pipe cleaners and a pom pom nose add googley eyes and presto the Easter bunny. You could also add a third plate cut in half to glue to the back of the head to make a gift container .
