If you have children, it’s likely that you’ll want them to enjoy Easter. Kids love nothing more than diving into a few Easter eggs, however, you can make the holiday even more special. Most children love crafts and creating things they can display around the home. The good news is the DIY crafts do not have to be difficult or expensive.
Make Paper Roll Chicks
Take some yellow paper or card and cut it into strips about 5 inches thick. Glue or tape the ends together so a circle is formed. Take some pipe cleaners and bend them so they look like wings. Glue the pipe cleaners to the sides of the paper roll. Your chick now has wings. Draw on some eyes with a pen or stick a few googly eyes on there and some cheeks too if you wish.
Now take a small piece of orange paper. Cut the paper so it looks like a beak. Stick the beak on the paper roll with some glue. Finally, use 2 short lengths of pipe cleaner and fold them so they look like feet. Stick the feet to the bottom of the paper roll and you should have a paper roll chick that looks quite sweet!
This is one of the best ideas and involves only a few products for DIY crafts: a clothespin, card, glitter, and glue. Using any color card you wish, cut out the shape of an egg. Now cut zig-zags into the egg so it looks like the egg has cracked.
Glue the top of the egg to one end of the clothespin. Glue the bottom of the egg to the bottom of the clothespin. When you open the clothespin the egg should look like it’s being opened. Now take a very small piece of yellow card and cut it into a chick shape. Draw eyes, a beak, and eyebrows if you wish. Stick the chick to the bottom of the clothespin so it looks like there’s a chick in the egg when you open it up.
Easter Bunny Paper Plate
Take 2 paper plates per person and paint them pink or brown. Cut one of the plates in half so they can be used as ears. Now take some white paper and draw 2 eyes. Cut the eyes out and stick them to the other paper plate. Add a nose, some whiskers made form pipe cleaners and a mouth. Stick these to the plate.
Now take your half pieces of plate and stick them to the bunny’s head. Make sure you place them on the underside of the plate so you can’t see where they’re glued on.
As you can see, there are some great Easter DIY ideas out there. All you need is a little imagination and a lot of fun. Keep your little ones occupied this Easter and help them enjoy making crafts that they can display around the home or in the window.
