Do your kids fancy getting dressed up for their Easter egg hunt this year? What better character to be than this cute little Easter bunny.

Plus, this rabbit face paint is great as it can be used on both boys and girls. Your kids won't be able to stop rabbiting on about it!

To paint the rabbit face paint find a comfortable place to work and cover surfaces in case of any spillages. Water-based face paint is best as they wash off easily with soap and water, so no sore faces when the fun's over! Snazaroo's Rainbow Facepainting Kit has all the colours you'll need for the rabbit face paint and more, from snazaroo.com (£12.49).

Face paint is safe to use on most skin types but always do a patch test of the paint on the back of your child's hand. If there is no reaction in an hour or so it should be safe to use.   To create the rabbit face paint you will need:    A pot of clean water    Water-based face paint in white, pink and black    Face painting sponges    1 thick paintbrush    1 thin paintbrush
