Yarn Wrapped Bunny Napkin Rings - Super Easy Kids Craft For Easter!

These yarn wrapped bunny napkin rings are a super easy kids craft for Easter, and oh so CUTE! Our completed yarn wrapped bunny napkin rings are all ready to add the perfect touch of adorable to our table this Easter! My favorite part? They only require a super simple list of supplies, some up-cycled paper towel tubes (cut down,) and about 10-15 minutes of time (per bunny napkin ring.)

My toddler is loving yarn at the moment. She loves yarn wrapping crafts in particular, but she also loves cutting and gluing yarn to just about anything and everything, so it's been like yarn palooza up in here, friends! Toddlers are so much fun; especially when they discover a real passion for something new. They totally run with it!

This post is sponsored by Schleich®. All opinions expressed are my own.

With Easter just weeks away, it's time to start thinking about Easter basket treats for the kids! This reusable felt and fabric DIY Easter basket grass alternative is so incredibly easy to put together. When complete, it sets a super cute stage for one of my favorite non-candy Easter basket treats for kids too; Schleich ® Farm World figures and play sets! While I absolutely adore the entire collection, the Rabbit Hutch play set, Shiba Inu Mother and PuppyRabbitRooster and Lamb figures are great for gifting this Easter holiday.

Moment of honesty? Friends, I've forgotten the lovely shredded Easter basket grass the past few years in a row now. At the eleventh hour, I've simply wound up using whatever I've had on-hand to add a bit fluff to the bottom of the Easter baskets. Year after year! Not this year though. I decided to prep a little early for the upcoming Easter holiday by making a super cute reusable alternative to Easter basket grass, with a handful of supplies that I already had on-hand. My favorite part? Look how super cute the Schleich figures and Schleich Rabbit hutch play set looks presented atop this reusable Easter basket grass insert! Just adorable. The Rabbit Hutch play set is so perfect for Easter. It comes with the the rabbit hutch, a faux log tunnel, rabbit figures, a fence and the cutest accessories for endless hours of imaginative play and learning fun.
