Charlotte's Guide To An Indoor Easter Egg HuntApril 13, 2017
Easter is here and when you’re done exploring what’s on offer out and about these school holidays, it’s time for some arts and crafts.
There are so many things that we could do, from all ages, from the simple egg and bunny drawings to the more complex egg shell décor or masks! Just get inspired, and grab your future Picassos, and let’s create a memorable Easter!
Easter Arts and Crafts Activities (for the little ones)
For the little one let’s make things simple! Grab a potato, cut it in half, and we’ll use it as a stamp to make some yellow chicks – perfect for a homemade Easter card!
Potato Print Chicks
From My Kid Craft
- Small potato
- Yellow paint
- Googly eyes
- Orange paper (for the feet and the beak)
- Card or paper to stamp on
- Cut a potato in half
- Dip into yellow paint and stamp onto your card or paper.
- Add the wings and with the orange paper cut the feet and a triangular beak.
- egg cartons
- Remove the top half of the egg carton and save if making animals other than bunnies. Cut out 3 individual cups from the bottom half of the carton, using scissors. Trim the rim and remove. For the body, stack 2 of the cups together so the openings meet. Glue together then set aside.
- Using other bits of the cardboard create the bunny ears or chick’s beak.
- Paint all pieces white and allow them to dry.
- Attach face piece to body, adhere with glue then add a pom pom in the back as the tail to the bunny
Easter Arts and Crafts Activities (for the older ones)
For the elder ones why not create some head bunny ears for kids to wear! This fun and totally cute craft to make Bunny Masks from Babyccino Kids is gorgeous. Here’s a little snippet, but you’ll find the full tutorial on their blog.
- heavy card stock paper (white)
- pink craft paper
- cotton wool
- elastic string
- Cut the eyes and the ears of the mask in the white paper
- Cut the interior of the ears with the pink craft paper and the fine stipes for the whiskers
- Attach the elastic band on the back
- Add the cotton wool throughout the white area
Send your photos and let us know if the kids enjoyed their masks!
