It’s that time of year again where everything is pastel. There’s an aisle in each store full of Easter eggs and spring cleaning supplies, probably with Easter eggs on them. This time of year can be exciting for a lot of people because the world is blossoming again. The adults may plan to go to church services or get the house and garage clean, now that it’s starting to get warm outside. Kids look forward to an Easter egg hunt and being able to play outside every day again. But what can kids do while the parents are deep cleaning and decorating the house?
Engaging in crafts is one of the brightest ideas for kids to be creative while being entertained. And you as adults can find craft ideas and kits to help them.
There’s a lot of online Easter crafts for kids, and we have chosen a few ideas for you to follow:
This is a simple craft with a minimal clean-up, which can be ideal for the busy parent. There are many printable Easter colouring sheets for kids to do. It is also a good option for a wide range of kids as there are printable for preschool-aged kids but also adult colouring pages for the older kids who want a challenge. Grab some coloured pencils, even better if they’re pastel, and the kids will be busy for at least a half an hour. Give some extra motivation by making a special place for them to hang them up afterwards!
Disney’s Berry Picking Basket
The Disney website has some great ideas for crafts for kids. There’s a paper berry basket that, after it is made, could be followed up by a berry picking trip. The basket is Princess Aurora themed which is a bonus for any Disney princess lover. It is fairly easy to make with step-by-step instructions with photo guides. There is no printout, but the pieces of the project will be able to be found in most people’s homes. All that’s needed is paper, a ruler, pencil, a glue stick, and scissors.
Disney’s Thumper Cutie
This cute bunny project is great for animal lovers. The thumper cutie is a bit more difficult to make but not by a lot. There’s a convenient print out and, again, step by step instructions with pictures. All one needs for this is a printer, paper, scissors, and glue. The nature of the project might make it more suited for older kids, but a younger kid might be able to do it with the help of a parent or guardian. The thumper cutie will make a cute decoration in the house or in the child’s room. Plus, it will be fun to make! There is also a Bambi cutie that they may want to check out.
Rosetta’s Easter Tulips
This craft requires some items that might not just be found around the house, so it is a good idea to stock up before starting the craft. This craft requires wooden kitchen skewers, green paint, a paint brush, scissors, craft book paper, and glue. It is fairly easy to put together, and since it is once again a Disney craft, there is a step by step guide on how to do it, with pictures.
