Today I’m going to share with you all another Easter Craft! I’ve already shown you our Easter Egg Potato Stamping which if you haven’t seen you can check out here.
Decorating Card Easter Eggs.
This was a simple craft that could be adapted in different ways to suit the age of your child. I caught Amelia in a good mood and she did better at this activity than I thought she would.
I cut out egg shapes in coloured card and drew some basic lines on some of them. I got out all the crafty bits I wanted to use so that Amelia didn’t need to go riffling through packets.
We’ve been loving our craft supplies from DoCrafts. They are such a great price. We have this goody bag that has all you need to start out a well stocked craft box!!
Using this Goody Bag I created a tray of foam shapes, feathers, pompoms and tissue paper ready for Amelia to decorate the card eggs with!
I love that Easter Crafts are so bright and colourful it makes it so much more fun!
This little bunny was keen to get cracking (see what I did there) with our Easter Egg Decorating:
I sat Amelia down at the table and showed her how to use the paint brush and the glue. I then decided that this could end badly so I lightly covered the egg in glue and then gave her free rein to do whatever she wanted. She had a choice of things to stick down or to use the pens!
She actually got on so much better than I thought she was going to she loved choosing things and shouting “stick stick stick” as she pressed them down. She wasn’t quite ready to part with the pompoms and kept these in a little pile which she then carried round the house for hours after..she’s such a magpie!!
Amelia concentrated for a full half hour I even had to quickly cut out another egg as she was still in the zone. I love how much she concentrates and you can see her face figuring it all out. She really enjoyed selecting which thing she wanted to use next from the tray and I didn’t even care that it as all over the place as she was having such a great time.
I adore all of these photos; this activity was great for her age and older. I can’t imagine it would have been that good for much younger and I would only do this when Amelia was in the right frame of mind.
I loved how they turned out, the green and blue are my favourite and I will definitely be keeping them.
You could add different themes or colour schemes into this if your child was older and use confetti or beads to jazz it up!
This Easter Bunny loved her afternoon crafting, I was so proud of how well she did and she looked super cute too. What more could you want!
This is a nice easy craft that you could do with bits from around the house so I would definitely give it a go.
What crafts have you been up to this Easter?
