Have you done any Easter crafts with the kids so far? We have been pretty busy with our days and trying to do as many crafts as we can. The girls enjoy getting messy and I am happy to have the opportunity to photograph their arts and crafts.
This year Easter will be different to last years, however, it doesn’t stop us from enjoying family time and making the most of our time together 🙂
I do like to scroll Pinterest and find various simple activities which are fun to make 🙂 I have not only enjoyed creating Easter crafts with the kids but also documenting our life whilst we are staying safe at home due to COVID-19. In a few months, I will be looking back at those pictures and probably thinking that staying at home wasn’t that bad after all!
Have you joined the campaign on Instagram #letsallbewell? It’s such a wonderful project and it’s great to see kids and families all over the world creating rainbows and spreading a little love that we all need in such difficult times. We made our own rainbows from salt dough and painted them afterwards. It’s an art craft that I will be able to keep for a long time and put them in the girls’ bedrooms.
We have also enjoyed making a den. A place to hide, read, laugh and even spot birds when you look through our garden door. We have also made our telescopes!
One of the most important Easter crafts you can make is an Easter Egg bag. Sophie and Hanna were so excited to make them and can’t wait to use them on Easter Sunday and find as many chocolate eggs as they can. We have also made a treasure map not specifically for Easter but you can make a treasure map recreating your garden or house and the map will show the places eggs have been hidden. This will be a hit with children – trust me!
I am sure you also have lots of spare toilet rolls and you can change them to Easter bunnies 🙂
Another creative and fun Easter craft is making your table decorations by using a balloon and toilet paper. My sister sent me this idea from Youtube and I thought we have to give it a go. You only need to blow a balloon and add layers of toilet tissue paper. You pat paper with water and then let it dry for a day. Once the eggs are hard you release air from the eggs and cut egg shapes and colour them in. Inside we have put crocheted bunny, eggs and chicken by my mum. Perfect for table decorations and something different to do!
The last thing we made were flowers from the egg pots and we added them to our sunflower pots which the girls planted 🙂
I hope you will enjoy making Easter crafts with kids and I am looking forward to see some of those on your IG or Facebook! All my ideas are saved on my Pinterest board so check it out!
Till next time
