Easter is just around the corner, and with COVID-19 and everyone in lockdown, it is a great time to make fun crafts with kids!
There are a lot of themed arts and crafts activities that you can take advantage so your children can develop their skills and still have fun.
It’s important that you give your children an outlet for their creativity and imagination. Arts and crafts are a great way to do that, so take the time to put these activities together and bond with your children during Easter!
Egg Carton Bunny
Recycling is important and you can encourage it through play with arts and crafts activities like this one.
Just grab that egg carton you were about to throw away, acrylic paint, googly eyes, scissors, masking tape, pom poms, glue, and white foam sheets.
Start by cutting 2 egg compartments and trimming the excess to make a flat top.
Then, paint the egg carton and let it dry.
Cut 2 bunny ears for each bunny out of the white foam, and once the paint is dry, glue them on as well as the googly eyes and the pink pom-poms for the nose.
Fill the bunnies with candy, and enjoy!
Paper bunnies are super easy to make, so children of any age can get on board with it.
You’ll need pastel pink and pastel blue construction paper, scissors, glue, white paper, googly eyes, and a black marker.
Start by cutting 4 long strips of paper and 4 short strips, both with the width of a thumb. Take 2 long strips and glue them together to make a cross, then add the other 2 strips to make a snowflake.
Do this with the short strips as well.
Then, take the snowflakes and start making a paper ball. Glue the strips together, making loops, until you have a nice ball.
Glue both paper balls together and hold them until they’re dry.
Cut the ears of the bunny out of pastel blue and pastel pink construction paper, cut a snout, and add the nose and the eyes.
Now your paper bunny’s ready!
Tin Foil Easter Egg
This tin foil Easter egg art is a great activity for children!
You’ll need cardboard, tin foil, scissors, and sharpies/ koki pens.
It’s super easy and your children will love it.
Make the tin foil Easter eggs by cutting an egg shape out of cardboard and then covering it with tin foil.
Next, have your children use the sharpie markers/ koki pens with the cap still on to make impressions on the tin foil egg for texture.
And finally, have them retrace their design with the marker and use as many colours as they want to make a colourful Easter egg.
Any of these Easter craft activities will guarantee your children will have fun, and we encourage you to try them all.
Your children won’t only have fun playing with their creations, they’ll also enjoy the process of making them.
Not to mention Easter crafts are super adorable so everyone will be happy to participate!
