Here is a cute and simple little art activity my Grade 1/2 class did for Easter.
We did a directed drawing of these whimsical bunny rabbits on paper trimmed to 7 X 12. Then we used oil pastels for colour and outlining. The final step was to paint around the rabbits with water color paints.
Here is the step by step, similar to my Reindeer Portraits step by step
Students put their non-drawing hand at the bottom of the paper and draw around their hand (not tracing their hand) to make the head shape. They put a dot in each of the top corners. This will help them make their ears nice and long.
Using the dots as guides, student connect the dot to the top of the head making the ears. Next they draw a dot in the center of the face.
From that dot they will make 2 circular shapes beneath it. Encourage big shapes. They do not need to be even or symmetrical.
The final step is to add a little bump for the nose, 2 teeth, whiskers that extend outside of the head and the inner ears.
Here are a few more examples from my students:
