Easter is such a fun time of the year! The peeps are making their way back on the store shelf, jellybeans are back in abundance, and kids are excited for all that easter weekend brings (baskets, and food, and egg hunts, oh my!)
Easter crafts for kids are a great way to bring spring and the holiday into your home and make some special memories doing so.
You cannot talk about Easter without talking about dying eggs. However, dying eggs does not have to be what it used to be years ago. Instead, there are ways to make them colorful, not smell, and be creative too. The first idea is you can use shaving cream. You add the color to the shaving creams and then mix to make an extra colorful combination. You can then roll the eggs in the shaving cream, and the color and patterns will go onto the egg. The second tip is to eliminate the vinegar smell. Instead of using vinegar, try using Kool-Aid. Kool-Aid will not smell like vinegar and will provide vibrant colors. And if a toddler decides to dip their fingers in their mouth, no worries!
Toilet Paper Easter Bunnies
The second fun easter craft is for those who have made many recent trips to the grocery stores for toilet paper. When you are finished with the toilet paper, keep the roll. That often discarded roll is a great craft item and in this, you could make some cute Easter Bunnies using it. You need paper, toilet paper rolls, some wiggly eyes, and some pipe cleaner. Crayons or markers are also recommended so your bunny can gave some color added to it. Cut the ears out using construction paper and use the pipe cleaner for the whiskers. Then draw on the toilet paper roll. A mouth and any other unique characteristics you would like to give the bunny, a design, or anything else you want. Be creative; this is your bunny and there is no right and wrong. If you have a cotton ball around the house, glue it on the back for a cute bunny tail.
Easter Bunny Masks
The last craft is a way to spice up pictures on Easter Day. You can make Bunny masks using paper cut-outs in the shape of a bunny. Draw the bunny face on the paper so you can easily cut them out without paper waste. Then you add your eye holes and whiskers. You can use a popsicle stick or small branch on the bottom so you can hold it up during pictures. But this is where you get the opportunity to decorate the bunny and make it unique. It can be any color and have any other unique features that the child wishes. It’ll truly be a hoppy good time and make for some treasured photos down the road!
Easter is a fun time to be with family and loved ones. These crafts can make this Easter even better and can be fun for the whole family.
