Easter Bunny Frame: This craft makes both of my girls crack up every time they see it on the refrigerator!  I used a plastic frame that is also a magnet. These are the frames that are $1 or less. Cut out & glue on the ears & white tail. Put your child's picture inside the frame. Then on the outside of the frame (so you don't actually draw on your child's picture) make a bunny nose & whiskers!

Supplies: Pink foam sheet or construction paper, glue, sharpie, cotton ball or white pom pom, white felt or white paper, plastic frame & picture of your child.

"Surprise Eggs": This is a fun twist on dying eggs. After you boil the eggs, write on them or draw pictures with crayons. Then, when the kids dye them, the designs pop up like magic!

Easter Cross & Flower: Cut out a cross from construction paper. Have your little ones decorate with crayons or Easter stickers. Then punch two holes & weave an Easter flower through. We found these pretty flowers at Trader Joe's today! I'm going to use this craft as a special gift for family members on Easter Sunday.

Easter Egg Lacing: Cut out an egg shape from a foam sheet. I was able to get a whole pack of Easter colors at our craft store. Then use a hole puncher to make holes around the outside of the egg. Use a piece of ribbon or yarn for your little one to practice lacing. This can also be used as a cute Easter card/gift for teachers, family, etc.

Marshmallow Easter Bunny:  We have done some of these "marshmallow" creations for other holidays so this was Aiden's first choice for Easter crafting!  (I think he loves "eating" the marshmallows as much as "creating").  On a piece of construction paper, I just squeeze some glue in the shape of an Easter bunny.  Then, Aiden just adds marshmallows to make our "Easter Bunny"!

  4. I saw this on Pinterest from the Homeschooling Divas. What a great collection of Easter activities. It would be great if you added this to Artsy Play Wednesday (where we will pin it to our new Pinterest board with almost 800 followers to start).
