Simple Easter Bunny Fun Projects to do with your Children.
According to the Easter tradition, the Easter Bunny would hide Easter eggs in the garden for young children to find and collect in their little baskets. This activity was always a fun event with our own children and sometimes they would even find Easter eggs throughout the house, hidden under and behind furniture. We as adults would also give Easter eggs to our family and friends when we visited them over the Easter break.
What to use for Easter craft projects…
Easter craft materials can be purchased from your local craft supply store or you may find many items amongst your household items. Pegs, plastic spoons, paint, coloured cardboard or paper; felt, icy pole sticks, disused cardboard cylinders, pipe cleaners, cotton balls, coloured ribbons, string, wool, paper plates (all sizes), egg cartons, cotton eye-wipes, ear-cleaners, straws, paper bags, colored cellophane and tissue, feathers, popsicle sticks and, of course, paint.
Great ideas for kids’ craft for Easter can be realised so simply by collecting many of these items and placing them into a craft box, in readiness specifically for any craft projects that will happily entertain and occupy your children, grandchildren or toddlers leading up to the many events during the year.
Encouraging children to be more creative using paint is a fun way for them to experience painting, and by using the many other craft activities, children learn to express themselves. By using the primary colours, then mixing different ones together, they can create the various shades of colour, which extends their palette experience.
Fun Things to Do for Easter
It’s a wonderful experience for children when they see, for the first time, small fluffy yellow tiny chickens hatching out after a long wait, while the mother hen has been sitting on these eggs over the past few weeks. Children love holding, very gently between their two hands, a lovely little chick who is chirping endlessly and enjoying being held. Bunnies and chicks can be so absolutely adorable and can be made from the simplest items.
These will inspire you to make many other fun handicraft items for all pre-school children.
Easter is a fun time of the year, it’s both a religious time where we get together with family and friends to celebrate and for some it’s an extended holiday. Special table settings are decorated with coloured Easter eggs and other symbols of the celebration of new life. This is a great time of the year to involve toddlers and young children in card making, painting eggs, cutting and gluing activities, using ribbon, string, glue, coloured paper along with discarded kitchen egg containers, cereal boxes and cylinders that can all add to this overall fun event. Involving your pre-schooler in these easy craft ideas adds to the whole occasion.
Great Activities for Toddlers
There are many craft ideas that can involve our toddlers and pre-school age children, especially indoor activities for kids. Toddler activities need to be colorful and easy for them to do and this can involve many art activities such as painting or crafting and they need to be quick and easy and fun things to do with kids.
