The starting step is useful to print out for students. Having the starting step is helpful in scaffolding drawing skills and it helps with sizing the drawing. It gives students confidence to begin their drawing, as they know that it is already off to a good start. It removes some of the fear of messing up a blank page.

The starting step is in gray on the page. It is gray so it blends in easily with a pencil drawing. The starting steps are available in 2 sizes depending on what size drawing you want to do.

Steps on How to Draw a Bunny

These instructions show how to draw a bunny easily. It is helpful to sketch it in pencil then outline the cute Easter bunny in marker afterwards. Remember to be patient and kind when you are drawing. Embrace your mistakes and show kindness to your drawing.

First, for the hungry bunny, start by sketching out a large carrot shape below the head of the bunny. 

Next, once you are happy with your carrot shape, outline the head of the bunny. Draw 2 paws that are holding on to the edge of the carrot. 

Then, draw a little curved line for the mouth and 2 teeth coming over the edge of the shaded carrot line.

After that, add 2 ears. Again, if sketching it first is helpful to you, do the sketch in pencil first. It’s okay if the ears are not identical on each side. 

Next, add 2 feet. They stick out from under the carrot, like the bunny has a huge carrot on his lap. Then trace the feet and finally trace the carrot outline.

Now it is time to add eyes on the bunny. I chose to do closed eyes on mine.

Then add leaves at the top of the carrot. Start by drawing 2. Next extra leaves can be added around to make the leaves more full at the top.

To add texture to the carrot, add curved lines coming out from the sides.

Lastly, add little lines for the cheeks, and little claws on the bunny’s paws. I also added a second line inside the ears. And a cute little nose.

Watch the instructional video for a guide or print out the visual instructions.

How to Color the Easter Bunny

After students have learned how to draw a bunny simple, it is time to color the drawing. Of course this is your drawing, so change it as you like, or follow along with how this one is colored. 

For the carrot leaves blend 2 shades of green. Start with a darker green on the inside of the leaves and then add a bright lime green on the edges.

For the ears and cheeks keep it simple with one shade of rose pink, or blend 2 shades of pink together.

Add a little bit of gray shading on the bottoms and edge of the paws, and a bit on the face.

To color the carrot blend 2 shades of orange. Start with a more golden orange on the top half of the carrot and then blend to a darker orange shade at the bottom.
