how to face paint an Easter bunny

Turn your child into the Easter bunny with face paints! We’ve got a step-by-step guide to show you how to do it for your child just like the professional face painters do…


You’ll need:

  • Face paints in the following colours: white, pink, black (see 4 of the best face paints for children, below)
  • A medium brush
  • A damp sponge

Here’s how to face-paint an Easter bunny for your child…

First, paint the white base

  • With the sponge and the white paint, create a bunny-shaped base over your child’s nose, eyelids, lower forehead, cheeks and top lip.
  • Dab a little white paint over the middle of your child’s lower lip

Next add the pink details

  • With the brush and the pink paint, carefully draw two large arches, one over each of your child’s eyes.
  • Pop a dot on their nose.
  • Use the sponge to create a rosy edge to the cheeks.
