This Bunny Stencil For Preschool Painting provides a fun way for young children to create their own artwork while also improving their fine motor skills and creativity. Whether it’s for an Easter celebration or just for fun, this bunny template is here to help you provide a fun activity for the little kids in your life. Below I’ll share tips and ideas on how to use this bunny stencil.
When my nieces were growing up, I loved getting together with them for craft days! Now that they’ve grown and some have kids of their own, we’ve hosted a few craft days that incorporate crafts for my now-adult daughter, son, nieces, and their kids!
At a spring craft day, we chose to gather supplies for the preschoolers to do a little painting!

How To Use The Bunny Stencil
- Print the Bunny Stencil on card stock. Tip: I suggest printing on a piece of color card stock to stand out on the white card stock you’ll be painting on.
- Cut the stencil. You may choose to use the inside or outside shape for your painting (or paint two and use both). Tip: A cutting machine (Silhouette or Cricut) will make this step much easier.
- Place your Bunny Stencil on top of a piece of white card stock and use painter’s tape to tape the edges to a table. Tip: I had only taped the top and bottom, but the card stock underneath did slip around a bit, so I suggest taping all four edges. If you’re painting around the bunny template, double up the painter’s tape and tape it to the center of the white card stock. Tip: We used a plastic table that cleaned up easily. You may also want to place a plastic tablecloth or something under where the little ones will paint.
- Provide paper bowls, washable paint, and clothespins with cotton balls clipped in the ends for painting.
- Help little ones dot the paint. Likely they will free-style and paint their way … that’s okay! Tip: Let the little ones create their own masterpiece!
- Let the paint dry.
- Once dry, remove the stencil.
- Enjoy the artwork! You may choose to write their name and the date if you plan to keep the painted bunny as a keepsake.

This was a fun paint project for the nieces and nephews, and the older ones had fun mixing paint colors to come up with their own colors!
