Prepare Your Candy Craft Materials

If you do not have a printer handy then you can recreate these patterns by drawing directly onto paper. This of course extends the activity with your kids to include some coloring in.
Glue, tape, scissors is all you need from there.
Easter Candy Craft Video Demonstration
Check out the video below for a full walkthrough of the project. This is in a time-lapse format and takes just a few minutes.
Cutting the templates is the bulk of the preparation and it gets pretty easy from there. But we still encourage you to go through the video so you can see how they all come together.
How to Make an Easter Candy Craft
Here are three ways to decorate your Easter candies with Easter bunnies and baby chicks. Use our free printable template, or just draw your character features and cut to suit. These will make fun Easter gifts for the family that are decorative right up until you rip into the candy underneath.
- Chocolate Bars
- Free Printables
Stage 1 - Easter Bunny Chocolate Bar
- Step 1 - Cut a length of white bond paper, wrap this around the chocolate bars, and glue in place.
- Step 2 - Cut out the bunny body parts and face from the printable template.
- Step 3 - Glue the bunny features in place on the bond paper.
Stage 2 - Easter Bunny and Chick Lollipop Holder
- Step 1 - Cut out the printable template, and be sure to hollow out the belly area of the bunny as marked. This will allow you to see the flavor of the lollipop candy when completed.
- Step 2 - Place the candy end of the lollipop head in the center of the cutout where the feet of the bunny are. Fold the cutout back along the lollipop so it is wrapped on both sides.
- Step 3 - Glue in place.
Stage 3 - Bunny Marshmallow Basket
- Step 1 - Cut the features of the Easter bunny from the marshmallow packaging template, and paste in place using tape.
- Step 2 - Cut the features of the chick from the marshmallow packaging template, and paste in place using tape.
