Easter Crafts

Easter is upon us so quickly this year! Each holiday, the girls and I love to make crafts. Last year we did a lot of Easter crafts. We made these “egg” heads by dying the Easter Eggs , cracking the top, then adding dirt and alphalpha seeds to grow funny hair. Then we added facial features as well. They were extremely cute and fun to make.

The best craft was the beloved sock bunnies. A craft and a doll all in one. They can be made from adult or kid socks. I made these with the students in my class and they were a huge hit! Kids love to sew – boys and girls.

This year, we are making foam art (butterflies and chicks), doing different types of egg dying and ornaments for our Easter Tree.

A tip for Easter Egg Dye: paint the food colour directly on the egg and it turns out brighter!
