Easter is just around the corner, so that means it’s time to hop to it with the craft ideas. If you’re at a loss for ideas this year, we’ve got you covered with these six fun and creative Easter crafts.
Six Easter Crafts for Preschoolers
Customize Your Chocolate Easter Eggs
Chocolate Easter eggs are the main attraction and this edible craft turns any plain chocolate egg into a masterpiece. For an eye popping display use Smarties Hide-me-Eggs. Martha Stewart also has a suggestion for embellished chocolate eggs.
This colourful craft requires food dye to brighten up hard-boiled eggs. What’s the best way to make the perfect coloured Easter egg? After hard-boiling the eggs, remove water from the saucepan and squirt food colouring directly onto the warm eggs. Next, swirl the eggs around the food colour with a spoon. Take the creativity up a notch by cutting the individual egg portions of an egg carton. Paint the carton piece to match your died egg and add feathers to turn the eggs into a chick. Spoonful has the exact instructions.
Make personalized Easter baskets with your preschoolers this year. When it comes to Easter crafts, this is an easy and affordable option. Grab a felt or wicker basket from Walmart for $2 and fill it with colourful tissue. Add fun trinkets like carrots, plastic eggs and spring flowers. If you’d like to step it up a notch, and you have a fabric pen, add your child’s name. Let your child decide what they want inside and you can turn it into a contest to see who can fill up their basket the fastest.
Who doesn’t love bunny rabbit ears? They combine two of every child’s favourite things: dressing up and celebrating Easter. Your kids will play with them long after Easter is over. Create your own this year with pipe cleaners and a hot glue gun. This craft will require adult supervision because you need to make sure the glue gun doesn’t burn your child during the process.
