Easter Crafts for Little and Big Ones

Posted by Rachael Jessup on

As you may know by now if you have read by other my other blogs - I love everything hand and foot print related. My sister, who is an early-years practitioner in the UK, sent me this link (below) for an Easter Craft to do with the kids. So I thought I would pass this along to you, as well as a few other craft ideas from fellow bloggers.

Footprint Art

I totally love this idea - some hand/foot print art projects look great but are tricky to achieve with a squirming baby or toddler. This though is pretty simple.  Remember, less paint will be your friend you can always add more to the picture after you have their print.

Easter Paper Crafts

All time classic - the Easter basket.  This craft takes limited resources and if you don't have any Easter stickers then how about cutting out the paper template and then let your little guys decorate with crayons, markers, tissue scrunched up as eggs - the possibilities are endless.  Even my eight year old still loves to make baskets - I think he sees it as another basket that MAY get filled with eggs :-)

Tissue paper flowers

Who remembers making these at school?  I certainly do.  Probably the cutest and easiest Easter/Spring craft out there.  You could get fancy and cut them into different shapes.  But a little vase of these is easy, colourful and fun to make. 

Egg Heads

We are also going to have a go at growing egg heads. It helps we have the 'girls' to produce the eggs. And I'm looking forward to growing the cress and having egg and cress sandwiches.

So have fun, make a mess and call it making memories – oh, and enjoy those eggy sandwiches.
