easter craftsTuesday, March 12, 2013
Cotton balls and paper and glue, oh my! We are always doing some sort of crafting and whenever a holiday comes around we shift to doing holiday themed crafts. Even our coloring...we already printed out spring/Easter coloring pages for our little one.
So in the spirit of Easter I collected some Easter holiday crafts. As always I have included activities from toddlers to teens and even yes us adults. I love the look and work put into homemade decor. Each item will always have a story no matter what and I like that. Let me get started...
Cup Animals - these are adorably creative. You would need a number of supplies but I can you can substitute to save some money.
Bunny Eggs - these would be great for older children and I can't quite tell if these are kits or very skilled crafters. The eggs look like they are made of foam but I am not 100% sure.
Paper Plate Bunny - this craft brought be back to my early school days. This craft requires only 5 items to create by substituting the fuzzy nose by using bent pipe cleaners and construction paper as eyes instead of the google eyes. This can be made very affordable.
Paint Chip Garland - with just the cost of some string unless you don't own a hole punch this craft can be made at the expense of your hardware store. Very cute and very creative. I didn't read through the post however I imagine making an egg template would allow accurate egg size and shape.
Button Egg - this one has a mama example and a baby example. How fun to sit down with your little ones while you both create some great Easter crafts. I love this one and may create one myself. You could do any shape - a bunny silhouette or even a peep.
Ribbon Egg - very cute and whimsical. Ribbon can become expensive so if you have some around the house or so happen to hit Hobby Lobby on their 50% off week that should help.
Sun Catcher Egg - this is one of my favorites. It just takes me back to being a kiddo and teachers coming up with such creative crafts to do. I am excited to do this with mine some day.
Handprint Baby Chick - I love handprint art. Especially if you have kiddos as different ages, this would be so cute and would really mark their adorably tiny-ness.
So in a nut (or should I say egg) shell, hahaha, there are some simple and affordable crafts you can incorporate as Easter approaches.
