#PlayAtHome Week 2- Create and Paint Easter Bunny!

#PlayAtHome with Little Brian Paint Sticks!

Our #PlayAtHome with Paint Sticks themed activity for this week is an Easter Activity…

Create and paint an Easter Bunny!

To join in with the fun, you will need:

  1. Paint Sticks
  2. Cardboard Roll- Kitchen Roll / Toilet Roll
  3. Scissors
  4. A Glue Stick
  5. Paper

With Easter now only being two weeks away, we wanted to introduce a craft to get your little ones in the Easter spirit! Right now, we all need something to focus on and look forward to, so this little Easter activity is just the trick. This week, we have not one, not two, but THREE ways to show you, how you can create your very own cardboard Easter Bunny. You could give your children the choice to select their favourite which they want to create and paint, or let them create and paint all three!

1.The Floppy Eared Easter Bunny!


The first Easter Bunny we want to show you is the easiest one to create, ‘The Floppy Eared Easter Bunny’. Depending on the size of the rabbit you want to create, use either the cardboard from toilet roll or kitchen roll. You will also need paper to draw the large floppy ears, and to draw the little feet! Use Paint Sticks to paint the ears, feet and also paint the cardboard tube. Add a little face to the cardboard to bring the Bunny to life! Finally, cut out the rabbit ears and feet, and use a glue stick to stick the ears onto the cardboard tube. How easy is that?!

2. The MINI Easter Bunny


Meet the ‘MINI Easter Bunny’. The smallest Bunny out of the three! This one is still relatively simple to create. All you need for this creation is the cardboard from your toilet roll and scissors- parental supervision needed. Use scissors to cut into the cardboard roll and create two bunny ears. Then the rabbit is ready for creativity to be unleashed with Paint Sticks and brought to life!

3. The 3D Easter Bunny


Our 3D Easter Bunny is the trickiest out of the three. Parental guidance may be needed for this particular creation, as there is a lot of chopping and sticking! For this, use the cardboard roll from toilet roll. Cut the cardboard into x5 pieces. Two chunkier strips for the Easter Bunny’s body and head, two finer strips for the ears, and a little strip for the bottom of the rabbit to sit on. Use Paint Sticks to paint the inside and outside of each cardboard piece. Then use a glue stick or a stapler to join either side of the strip together. Then, build each piece together on top of each other, again using a glue stick or a stapler. A little bit trickier but if your little ones like chopping, sticking and building, they will love creating this one!

Please upload your Easter Bunny creations on to your Social Media platforms and tag us by using the hashtag #PlayAtHome with Little Brian Paint Sticks! We will be sharing all of your Easter Bunny’s to our followers so we can all get into the Easter spirit.

#PlayAtHome Week 1- Paint a Rainbow on your window!

Our first #PlayAtHome with Little Brian Paint Sticks themed activity for this week is….Paint a Rainbow on your window!  Did you know that you can use our Paint Sticks on you windows? To join in with our themed activity this week, you will need:

  1. Paint Sticks
  2. A window / windows in your house forward facing your street
  3. A cloth and water (future reference for when you want to wipe your windows clean)

This week, we would like you and your little ones to paint a rainbow on your window with our Paint Sticks to spread some joy! Not only is this to bring some positivity in to your home to brighten your day during this isolation period, this is for all those children who will see your rainbow in their window when they pass by (not in groups). Also, for your neighbourhood. When children look out of their windows, they will see other rainbows painted in neighbours windows. A simple gesture which will bring a sign of hope, solidarity, and build a sense of togetherness and encourage others to join in with the fun! Right now is the time to put smiles on everyone’s faces, let’s do this!


Not only is this a lovely way to lift spirits, this is also a fun alternative to painting on paper and the perfect way to keep your children entertained.

A little bit of water and a cloth wipes our Paint Sticks off the glass easily. A way of tricking your children into giving the windows a clean too? Win win! But, we would advise you keep you rainbow beautifully displayed for as long as possible during this period.

Please upload your Rainbow on to your social media and tag us! By using the hasthtag #PlayAtHome with Little Brian Paint Sticks! We will be sharing all of your rainbows to our followers, to spread the love and to show togetherness.

Share your creations with us on: Instagram, Facebook. Twitter.

Remember, without rain, there would be no rainbows. Rainbows are often used to symbolise happiness after a storm.

We can’t wait to see your Rainbows! Have a lovely paint-filled week!
