If you’re a regular reader, you might know that I’m the least crafty person ever. As a child/teenager, I loved art, but I was never very good at it. I did pencil sketches of Jordan Knight from New Kids On The Block, I took Higher Art at school (the Scottish equivalent of A Levels), and my dad bought me expensive oil paints for Christmas one year, but I was never as good as I wanted to be.
Now that I’m a mum, crafting sessions with my toddler look more like this post by Molly from Mother’s Always Right, rather than mum crafting queen Red Ted Art. But I’m determined to just craft anyway – even if it lasts five minutes at a time and my kitchen ends up covered in glue, sequins and paint – hey, we’re crafting.
So in the spirit of ‘feel the fear and craft anyway’, I’ve been looking for some brilliant (and EASY) ideas for Easter crafts. Growing up, I just loved painting eggs, making Easter bonnets and everything in between. Here are my favourite ten…
1. Create an Easter Sensory Playtable and allow your toddler to explore their creativity.
2. Make a toilet roll Easter Chick. Super easy!
3. Make some Easy Spotty Eggs with food dye and stickers. Loving how these look.
4. Have some messy fun and make Shaving Foam Eggs For An Easter Tree. I am SO doing this with my toddler!
5. A crayon scribbles egg garland is a stupidly easy thing to do for younger kids, and makes the house cheery too, if you have family visiting.
6. These Polka Dot Tulips are great for a toddler who loves to paint!
7. Combine crafting with dressing up – as the Easter bunny!
8. An Easter nest made from spaghetti? Count my daughter in with this one.
9. Possibly the easiest Easter craft ever – Pipe Cleaner Bunny Rabbits.
10. I love an Easter bonnet. Make one from scratch with paper mache.
