I know it’s completely irrelevant for another 11 or so months, but I can’t help it. We did a LOT of crafts! Well, actually, I did a lot of crafts with a LOT of different children. As it was also Spring Break, I did a week of crafts and games with the boys and a week of crafts and games with the BFF and two random 10 year olds who came over for a day of shenanigans.
Mostly though, I just want to sing the praises of this book that I found:
It’s Highlight for Children’s “Fun to Make Crafts for Easter” and it is LOADED with awesome! Not just Easter awesome, but also Spring Awesome. Like the Egg Carton flowers I posted last week and also these lilies that we did too.
Not going to lie, these were sort of a pain in the butt to make and the kiddos grew weary pretty early on. But I was determined.
But there were lots of crafts that the boys really enjoyed.
Froggy enjoyed this craft far more than Turtle did, so we worked mostly with his favorite color, orange. Still, after all this time, his favorite.
I was just glad the plastic grass wasn’t as obnoxious as I thought it would be.
Another really simple bunny craft was this:
All this needs is strips of paper in varied sizes (one big for torso, three medium size for head and ears and 4 small for limbs) and tape. Easy-peesy. Turtle cut out the paper and taped them together, I taped them to each other and shaped the ears.
Another game that we made (me and random 10 year olds) was a egg balancing game made with a used soda bottle, plastic grass, craft stick, sturdy paper plate (that we decorated with tissue paper) and a lot of empty plastic eggs.
And last but not least, Weaved Easter Baskets!
All of these (and more) can be found in the book pictured above. Though, of course, we did modify most of them, but that’s what is so great about arts and crafts. They are so versatile!
