As a child I loved making crafts. Fast forward 20 years, and I’m lucky if I can glue two pieces of paper together, but that doesn’t stop me from trying, or my girls from being crafty. Easy Easter crafts, I’ve got down… mainly because I try the same ones over and over each year.
Easy Easter Crafts
Paint Chip Eggs
You can get paint chips at any hardware store or Walmart that sells paint – for free. If you can eyeball the shape of an egg, great, I found a random one online to trace quickly. Trace them, cut them out, hang them. Simple. Easy for kids to do themselves. You can hang them by stringing a string through them or, as I did, hand them with tiny clothes pins, usually found in the craft section.
Toilet Paper Roll Bunny
These are super easy to make. A toilet paper roll, construction paper and glue are needed. Depending on our child’s age you may choose to cut the pieces out a head of time.
Color your roll if you so choose or have a brown or white bunny. Cut on eyes, nose, ears, etc.
We like making this for our kids them setting an egg on them. A facecloth and an elastic are all you need. Starting with a corner roll the facecloth to the other corner. Then pinch the two ends together. Fold the ends back a little, and slip the elastic over the fold. Works best with a large, unwashed facecloth.
This one is for an adult. Plastic Easter eggs, from the dollar store or maybe you have some leftover from last Easter, string, and a hot glue gun. Really straight forward, add some glue to two points on the egg and wrap the string around the egg. You will need to add more glue as you. Up close, I wan’t sure I liked the look of these eggs, but once in a glass vase (or wine glass) they look great. They make a beautiful pop of color!
