Easy Easter Crafts

I love making crafts with the kids that parents can set out for upcoming holidays, birthdays etc. Normally parents don’t pay me for bringing crafts so I try to use what I have around the house or know that the parents have on hand. Since Easter is almost here I thought it would be cute to make Easter bunnies. Here are a couple crafts that kids of all ages can do, made with “stuff” around the house.

You Cant Have Easter without the EASTER EGGS!

While most parent’s will reserve the right to dye eggs with their kids, this is a cute way to decorate the house with fake eggs.

Supplies:

  1. construction paper
  2. glue
  3. anything colorful (i.e. pipe cleaners, flowers, buttons, cotton balls, faux jewelry, foam stickers)
  4. creative kids

Directions:

I pre-cut egg shapes on white paper and placed my random colorful items on the table. The kids had a blast picking and choosing what colors and textures they wanted on their eggs.
