Marbling inks work well for decorating all sorts of objects - homemade marbled paper, plates and polystyrene cups - we've had homeschooling fun with all of them.

Using fondant icing to make bunnies must be one of the most fun Easter crafts for kids!
Here are a few more bunny ideas from my Courageous Homeschooling Facebook group.
"I drew the Easter bunny by hand. All I would probably advise is to print the feet and the hands first and then see how big you have to draw the bunny body and head, so the proportions are right lol.
You can use cotton wool etc. to decorate or make the tail with, we used a button. Glitter is great to highlight certain features, other than that it is down to personal preference."
