1. Yarn Eggs
Yarn eggs are some of the most original kids Easter crafts. The best part about them is that you can offer your loved ones a lovely gift with a surprise inside, or decorate around the house. However, if the eggs contain small toys it might not be a good idea to give them to small children. The yarn eggs are easy to make and allow children to use their imagination. You will need just some yarn, small toys or candy, a sponge, an air pump, Mod Podge and water balloons.
Step 1 – Carefully fit the candy or small toys into the water balloon so that you don’t rip it. Inflate the balloon until it reaches the desired size (approximately 3 inches tall). You can use the air pump if it doesn’t work by mouth. Tie the opening.
Step 2 – Squeeze the balloon until it reaches the desired size and wrap the yarn around it, leaving the tied knot out.
Step 3 – Mix ¼ Mod Podge with ¾ cup of water. Stir until the mix looks milky. Dip the sponge into the mix and coat the yarn with it.
Step 4 – Leave the yarn eggs to dry for 24 hours and then pop the balloon while you hold the knot through one of the holes. Pull it out and make sure the toy stays in.
2. Eggs with dots
Kids Easter crafts are all about the eggs. This eggs-traordinary craft will surely make your basket noticed by visitors. You will need some egg dye, hard-boiled eggs, small bowls, colored sand and glue.
Step 1– Prepare the egg dye according to the instructions. After you color the eggs, let them dry completely.
Step 2 – Place the colored sand into the small bowls. You can use one bowl for each color or create interesting mixtures. Apply lines or dots of glue on one side of the egg and gently roll it in the sand. Be careful not to touch the egg on other surfaces because it might get damaged or stuck.
Step 3 – After the glue dries, repeat the procedure with the other side of the egg. You can use the same color or a different one. Because the purpose of kids Easter crafts is to develop the imagination, allow them to create different patterns.
3. Egg chicken
