Instructions for this Easter Bunny Art exercise:

Step 1: Paint the Bunny Shape

Step 1 – Paint the Bunny Shape

Before you start, slowly breathe in and out a few times to clear your head. Then, bring yourself to the present, away from all the day-to-day stress.

Start by mixing a little water with your chosen watercolor shade. Paint a circle on your watercolor paper, then add two long ears at the top. Remember, perfection isn’t the goal here; it’s all about having fun and letting loose.

Step 2: Outline Your Bunnies

Step 2 – Outline your bunnies

Patience is a virtue—give your bunny shapes time to dry completely. This is a perfect moment to sip on your favorite tea or simply take in the quietness.

Once dry, gently outline each bunny’s head and ears to define them. This doesn’t have to be precise; just let your hand flow.

Step 3: Add faces and details

Step 3 – Add faces and details

With fine liners or paint markers, give each bunny its own character. Draw eyes, noses, mouths, and any other details you fancy. This is where you can get the kids involved, letting them decide what each bunny’s expression should be.

If you feel like it, add a simple pattern or some Easter eggs in the background. Light, playful strokes will do—the aim is to complement your bunnies, not overshadow them.

Remember, the beauty of this exercise lies not in the perfection of the outcome but in the joy of the process and the calm it brings into your moment. Each stroke and line adds to a story—your Easter story, told through the whimsical expressions of watercolor bunnies.

As you embark on this artistic journey, let the simplicity of painting Easter bunnies be a reminder: creativity doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s the simple acts, the moments of letting go, that often lead to the most memorable creations and cherished times.

Happy Easter, and happy creating!
