Easter is a fun holiday for crafting, especially for kids. With the brightly colored materials, spring-time themes, and endless symbols to contemplate, the projects will easily be fun, vibrant, and charming. Here are some ideas to get those creative juices flowing!
- Easter Bunny Plates: Take two paper plates (in pastel colors) and cut one in half (these will be the ears). Glue the ears behind the head plate and use pom-poms, construction paper, glue, and ribbon to decorate the head of your bunny with whiskers, eyes, little triangle nose, and any other accessory needed.
- Decoupage Eggs: a great craft for the older kid. Have mom/dad blow out eggs (wash and let dry first), while the kids cut out images from printed napkins or tissue paper (if using napkins, make sure you peel the layers apart). Apply Mod Podge to the egg, affix the chosen image, and use your brush to smooth out. When the egg looks done, apply another coat of Mod Podge to the entire surface and let dry.
- Prayer Journal: a simple craft for those who celebrate the spiritual aspect of Easter
- Easter Treat Buckets: paint mini pails with spring colors (check your craft store for the right paint) and cute images before filling with delicious chocolate egg treats. It’s the perfect craft to gift to family and friends.
Simple, sweet, and meaningful – your children will really enjoy the fruits of their labor.
