Overview of Digital Build an Easter Bunny for Kids
First, your students will pick one of three Easter bunnies and copy it onto one of the backgrounds. Then, they’ll dress up their rabbit in pants, a shirt, shorts, a skirt, vest or jacket. Each clothing item comes in 4 – 8 different colors, therefore the possibilities are endless! To complete the look, your class will add accessories like hats, shoes, bows, tie, or necklace. Lastly, they can add some fun extras like painted eggs, a basket, paint cans, paintbrushes, or a carrot.
And, if you’d like to take it a step further, have your class take a picture of where their Easter Bunny is outside their home and have them insert it into the background instead. Use it as an opportunity to teach students about composition and lighting. This art project is also a great exercise in teaching about overlapping and depth in terms of space.
These digital build an Easter Bunny templates include 178 moveable graphics for your kids to decorate their own digital rabbit. Step-by-step directions are included at the beginning of the Google Slides document to teach kids how to flip an image and change the order of images to bring something forward or backward, as well as how to group objects.
The download contains a two-page PDF with directions on how to access the templates. And this document comes ready to go in Google Drive, so don’t worry about trying to figure out how to import it into your Drive!
I’ve included directions for some basics like copy/pasting, rotating, ordering, and adjusting the size of images.
