I have decided to put a list of Easter crafts and food ideas that you can do with your kids this year since we are stuck inside for another thirty days. I will be posting links for items that if you do not have them already at home you can order them online. I know this year is going to be hard for families and their normal traditions will have to be changed but at least you are home safe and able to still do something with your kids. I wanted to make some kind of light out of these crazy times and help some families still have fun and have something to do. So here is my list I have found and put together for you, I hope you enjoy!
- Easter chick fork painting
This is very simple, you just dip the fork in the paint and go around in a circle, once you are finished with that you take the black pen and make your chick some cute little legs. Add your googly eyes with your glue and put the beak on with the cut out piece of felt. Now you have a cute little fork painting chick!
2. Egg carton flowers
After you are finished with dying eggs you don’t have to throw away the cartons, you can just make them a fun art project for your kiddos. First cut out four container of the egg carton to make four sides. I would get a plate and put a little bit of each color of paint on the plate so your kids can pick what colors and where to put them at. After the paint is all dry you can glue your pom pom in the middle of your flower and glue the straw on the back. Simple and quick craft for any age child and you can put them in a vase if you want to.
3. Toilet paper roll bunny stamps
This one is very simple and super cute! First you tape three toilet paper/paper towel rolls together and make sure they are all level. Then the top two bend them a little bit to make them look like bunny ears. I would use a paper plate and pour some white paint on it and then let your kids make stamps all over the paper. After they are finished making their bunnies, you can draw the faces on them using a black marker.
4. Rice krispies Easter egg treats
Melt 10oz of marshmallows and 6 TBSP of butter in a bowl in the microwave, make sure to stir occasionally. After the butter and marshmallows are melted, separate them into two separate bowls and add food coloring of your choice to each bowl and about 3 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal into each bowl. Once it is all mixed together, put non sick spray into the plastic eggs and put some of the mixture into the eggs. Remove the Rice Krispies from the eggs and YAY you have delicious Rice Krispies Eggs.
5. Easter bunny pancakes
What a cute way for your kids to eat their breakfast Easter morning! All you have to do is make pancakes, cut a banana in half for the ears, use the blueberries for the eyes and you can even use it for his nose, and you can either use cheese (which I find strange) or you can use whipped cream for the whiskers even though it wont be as neat and perfect.
I hope you guys enjoy these cute ideas for Easter this year. I know it is not the way we like to do things but lets try to make the best out of a not so great situation! Let me know if you try any of these ideas with your kids!
