As a mom of a 2 year old, I am always looking for fun and easy crafts to do with my daughter. For Easter, I have found 5 fun and easy Easter crafts that I will definitely be doing with my daughter this year. And, I love the fact that they would all make great gifts for the grandparents or great grandparents that may not be able to spend Easter with us this year.
1. Easter Egg Sun Catcher from Sweet Frugal Life
If you’re like me, you likely have a ton of tissue paper lying around from different gifts over the year – so this is the perfect way to use up all of that leftover tissue paper! Another great thing about this particular craft is that it doesn’t just have to be done in an Easter egg shape, you can do chicks or bunnies, anything that represents Easter in your family!
- Tissue Paper – Spring Colours
- Contact Paper
- Paper Hole Punch
- Pattern (Egg, Duck, Bunny, Cross – just print an image you like from Clip Art or off the Internet)
2. Edible Peeps Playdough from 123 Home School 4 Me
If you have a child that loves putting EVERYTHING in their mouth, then this is for you! Right now, I stress a little bit about my daughter having Playdough because she still likes to try and taste everything, this is one playdough I would be comfortable letting my daughter play with as it is an edible playdough!
- Peeps – whatever colour you like
3. Easter Bunny Canvas Art from Liz on Call
This is a very easy Easter Craft that kids of all ages can do and have fun with. And, it can be done in many different ways.
- Cricut (optional as you can print out images from your computer and then cut them out)
- Paint Brushes
- Bingo Dabbers could also be used instead of paint, especially for the younger kids, they can just dab the bingo dabber while the older kids can use paint and paint brushes
- Canvas (I buy my canvases from the dollar store)
4. Mess Free Painting from The Chirping Moms
This is another one that can be done in different ways. Last year, I did a mess free Easter painting with my daughter and the results were AMAZING. I printed off an Easter Bunny with my Cricut and stuck it to a blank canvas. Then, I put a few dabs of some pretty Spring coloured paint on the canvas, stuck it in a Ziploc bag and let her squish the paint around. Once she was done, I took the canvas out of the plastic bag and then took off the vinyl.
- Paper Plate
- White Paper (or a canvas or cardstock)
- Easter/Spring/Pastel Coloured Paints
- Large Ziploc Bags
5. Handprint Chick from A Little Pinch of Perfect
This is one that can be done every year with your kids and kept as a keepsake to see how they have grown over the years!
- Yellow and Orange Paint
- White Craft Paper
- Yellow Craft Paper
- Orange Craft Paper
- Black Pen (Sharpie)
Well, there you have it, 5 easy and toddler friendly Easter crafts to make with your little ones this year! If you try any of these out, be sure to show me what your families come up with!
