Easter Crafts, Food & Activities

Here are six Easter Crafts you and your children may enjoy this week. 

1. Easter Story

I’m telling my children the Easter story in 12 parts in the lead up to Easter.  My kids love opening our homemade eggs everyday and reading the daily story in the Easter Advent Calendar printout.

2. Easter Egg Wand

This is a an easy craft that has the potential for imaginative play.

Materials: Kebab stick (or paddle pop for younger children), foam egg shape, paint or glue and glitter, ribbon

1.Press a kebab stick (or paddle pop stick) into the base of the foam egg. It’s a good idea to but a little glue on the end of the stick before inserting so it stays in place.

2. Decorate the egg with your choice or permanent markers, paint or glitter.

3. Tie a ribbon just underneath the egg.  To keep the bow in place, use a little glue.

4. Place in a pot plant to dry.

(You can use the wands as a table centrepiece too)

3. Easter Egg Chocolate Centrepiece

Jordan from Polkadot Prints demonstrates how easy it is to make this gorgeous chocolate Easter egg centrepiece. There’s a free template to download too.

I love those Easter buddies and the egg wands are a great centrepiece. I might have to modify it a bit for little girl’s birthday party.
