Funky Easter Bunnies with Zentangles

It's been a loooong time since I posted here. Hello! As I've mentioned a few times before, since I moved school, I've not been hugely involved with art which is a shame. However, I rediscovered some photos from a project that we did last year around Easter time. You've probably seen these all over Pinterest, but what the hey, I'll share ours, too.

Step 1
We printed out the bunny rabbit templates from this website. We did give the boys the option of drawing their own, but they instantly gravitated towards the 'ready-made' version. I had prepared a number of Zentangle handouts which had a range of simple patterns on and we encouraged the boys to try some of them out on scrap paper first.
Once they were ready, they filled in each section with a different pattern or design.

Step 2
We had a selection of rainbow/holographic paper to choose from. The boys carefully cut out their patterned rabbits and glued them onto the background of their choice.

Step 3
We then had a selection of sunglasses that we printed out from the same template. They could choose their favourite, cut them out and decorate them. Some chose to cut out the lenses and some found that step a little more challenging and so decided to shade them in with a black marker.
In the end, they had their wonderful funky Easter rabbit with zentangles :)
