Step by Step Instructions

1 Print out the Easter template
2 Cut out the shapes
3 Decorate the face
4 Cut out the inserts
5 Assemble your racer
6 Final touches to your racer
  • Step 1. Print out the Easter template

    Cut out the shapes and trace around them onto the white sheet card board.
  • Step 2. Cut out the shapes

    Cut out the shapes from the white cardboard sheet. Decorate ears, paws and bow tie using coloured foam.
  • Step 3. Decorate the face

    On the bunny face, add pipe cleaners for whiskers and a pom pom for the nose. Colour in the eyes and mouth.

  • Step 4. Cut out the inserts

    Cut out the inset holes on each bunny paw.
  • Step 5. Assemble your racer

    Get a parent to cut two pieces of hose at 130cm length each. Then slide a small bunny paw to the middle of each hose. Take one hose and attach it to the base of the plant trainer on the left-hand side, using a pipe cleaner. Leaving about 10cm over hang. Then wrap that hose up around the trainer in a clock wise direction to the very top. Ensure there’s no kinks or right angles in the hose. Leave a 10cm overhang at the top and attach the hose to the trainer with pipe cleaners. Repeat this process with the second hose but wrap it around the trainer in an anti-clockwise direction so it crosses over the first hose and attach it with pipe cleaners.

  • Step 6. Final touches to your racer

    Using the double-sided tape, stick the bunny ears to the top of each hose, hiding the hose connectors. On the top of the trainer stick on the bunny’s face. Then stick the bow tie underneath the face. Pull the two feet over the bottom ends of each hose. You can add some extra decorations too with paper Easter eggs for added effect.

You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
