Last week Tyler and I created a cute little Easter bunny project with some basic craft supplies. While there was some controversy over whether a bow tie is an article of clothing or a food item (bow tie pasta), we really enjoyed the project overall. This was another quick and fun project that we were able to do in the time between Hailey going to bed and Tyler's bedtime.
With Easter just a few weeks away, putting together an Easter basket for the kids is at the forefront of our minds. For older kids, you can just walk down the aisle of your local pharmacy or discount store, swipe your arm along the shelf, and you have everything you need for your Easter basket. Babies can be a bit harder since they can't eat the candies and many of the toys may not be appropriate for putting in their mouth. The following are my picks for Easter baskets for babies. Best of all, everything is available on Amazon, so no leaving the house!!
In preparation for Easter, Tyler and I of course had to do an Easter craft. Since T liked painting so much for our St Patrick's Day craft, we decided to paint again for this craft. This time we made an Easter Egg Wreath for the occasion.
2. Next we painted the border of our paper plate green with our paintbrush.
3. Now we had to wait until our paint dried. We decided to have a snack while we waited.
4. Once our paint was dried, we used our plastic egg to trace egg shapes on the back of our polka dotted paper.
5. Next we cut out our eggs as well as the center of our paper plate.
6. Then came T's favorite part: gluing our eggs onto the paper plate wreath.
7. Finally, you can use a hole punch and ribbon to tie a loop through the wreath to make it easy to hang.
T and I had a lot of fun creating this craft. For older kids, you can cut out the eggs first and have them decorate them like they would a real Easter egg. I like the randomness of the eggs we made however.
This project was extremely helpful in entertaining T on the days leading up to Easter. He is highly anticipating the painting of Easter eggs, but this project allowed him to have some Easter fun in the days leading up to painting eggs with his cousin.
This craft is perfect for toddlers. We hope you try it out!! Share your finished product on our Facebook page!
