Celebrate new beginnings at Easter with these easy kids Easter crafts.
Kids Easter Crafts Using Eggs:
Colored Easter Eggs
hard boiled eggs that have been cooled(white eggs work best)
markers or crayons
boiling water(adult assistance and supervision required)
yellow, red, green and blue food coloring
Fill each cup half full with boiling water. Add 1 teaspoon vinegar to each cup. Put 15 to 20 drops of food coloring in each cup and stir. With the large spoon, put one egg in each cup. Let stand until it is the color shade you want. Remove egg from cup and place on paper towel to dry. Use markers or crayons to make designs.
You can mix the blue colored water with the red colored water to make purple.
Egg Shell Mosaics
Here are some kids Easter crafts that make good use of the egg shells after the eggs have been eaten.
Egg shells from peeled, dyed Easter eggs
lightweight cardboard or card stock
optional:Page of a picture from a coloring book
Put the egg shells in a plastic bag and crush them with your hands, being careful not to make the pieces too small. Draw a design or picture on the cardboard or cardstock or for younger kids, cut out a page from a coloring book and glue onto cardboard or cardstock. Spread glue on part of the picture on the cardboard or cardstock( only a small area at a time as the glue will dry quickly). Press the egg shells colored side up into the glue. Spread more glue and repeat with egg shells. You may want to use or draw pictures of an object such as a fish, flower or animal. Repeat with glue and egg shells until your work of art is finished.
empty egg carton
strip of cardboard
bits of paper
yarn or ribbon
Cut the top off the egg carton. Cut a handle from the cardboard 1 1/2 inches wide. Punch two holes across from each other through both ends of the handle with a hole punch. Punch two holes halfway down the length of the egg carton on either side about one inch from each other. Put a pipecleaner through each hole in the handle and basket and tie to secure handle onto egg carton basket. Decorate your basket by painting or with markers or stickers. Add some artificial flowers or whatever else you would like for decorations.
Kids Easter Crafts:Animal Ideas
8 cotton balls
yellow food coloring
orange construction paper or orange pipe cleaners
empty egg carton
brown or green colored streamers or tissue paper
Cut egg carton so that you have a four egg cup square section. This will be the nest. In a cup pour a 1/2 cup of water and 10 or 12 drops of yellow food coloring. Dip each cotton ball into the yellow colored water with a tweezer and place each one on a folded newspaper to dry. Don't squeeze out excess water. When cotton balls are dry, fluff each one out again. Glue two cotton balls together, one on top of each other. Glue two wiggly eyes on the top cotton ball for eyes. Either cut four small triangles from the construction paper for beaks or cut a pipe cleaner(chenille stem)into four 1-inch pieces. Bend each of these pieces in half to make beaks and glue them on to make the beaks appear open. Glue the beaks on below the eyes. Cut up thin strips of the brown or green streamers or tissue paper to be the twigs/grass and place in the egg carton. Place each chick on top of the streamers in each egg cup in the egg carton.
