  • Paint the outside of your can and set aside to dry.
  • Once your painted can is dry, paint a small round circle (your bunny's nose!) in the middle of the front of your painted can. Using a black permanent marker, draw your bunny's eyes, whiskers and mouth as pictured. 
  • Draw and cut out two bunny ears from construction paper. Cut out two smaller ear-shaped pieces of a different color. Glue the smaller pieces on top of the larger cutout ears.
  • Using your hot glue gun, glue ears to the backside of your can. (Kids might need help with this step!)



  • Be sure to wait until your painted can is completely dry before drawing on the bunny's facial features. Otherwise the marker and paint will blur together.
  • While we used 7 oz tuna cans for our Easter tins, but just about any other empty container should work!
  • Easter tins can be used to hold candy or any other small snack, like peanuts, pretzels or small pieces of fruit.
