When it comes to Easter holidays the eggs are by far the most important elements. While most people choose to simply dye the eggs others choose to decorate them. However don’t think that you have to be a skilled artist in order to have nicely decorated eggs. A simple way to decorate eggs is to use special dye in order to give them a uniform color and them decorate them with paint using either a brush or a toothpick. You can also put dots of glue on the eggs and then roll them through glitter. These activities are sure to keep the kids busy for a long time. Another great trick is to stick different leaves on the eggs before putting the eggs in dye. After you take them out of the paint remove the leaf and you will have an egg with a nice leafy model. Another great idea is to color the eggs in ombre shades. Place the egg in a small amount of dye that covers about a quarter of it. Leave it there for a few minutes and then pour a little water in order to dilute the paint. Repeat the process until the egg is completely covered by paint.
When it comes to indoor decorations there are a lot of great things that you can do. One of the easiest and most fun Easter crafts is making yarn eggs. Blow up balloons to the size of an egg and then wrap them in colored wire which you have previously soaked in wallpaper glue. Once the glue dries up you can pop the balloon and you will have an egg shaped yarn decoration. You can put them on a string and use them as a garland or you can put them in a bowl or basket and use them as a table decoration.
When it comes this particular holiday the kids simply love the Easter bunny. Therefore the best Easter crafts for children involves this particular character. Go crazy with the colored paper and teach you children how to clip bunny figures. Use the same figure size and have them do as many bunnies as possible and then have the children decorate the house with them. You can make a bunny garland or an Easter bunny wreath. And since we’re experimenting with paper the kinds will love the idea of a bunny mask. Make sure you use a hard paper or even cardboard for carving the masks and decorate it with different colors and even glitter. Don’t forget that the most important part of the bunny mask are the ears so give extra attention to them.
While the crafts presented above are only dedicated to the Easter holiday, you should consider doing crafts with your children in any other day of the year. Good parenting tips involve bonding with children and teaching them to be creative while also being productive.
