Kid Friendly Easter Crafts

It wasn’t hard to find some cute Easter craft ideas this year, especially with Pinterest. The ideas are endless! I found a couple of easier ones that I thought Karli would enjoy doing and I thought I would share them with you. Chase actually joined in on the fun for the first one!

Easter Egg Garland

First we have a colorful Easter garland made from paint chip samples which are FREE – can’t beat that.

* The template for the egg shape (or you can google “egg shape” for various options) can be found at Modern Parents, Messy Kids.

Egg Animals

We also made these adorable Egg Animals from plastic Easter eggs which require a few more supplies that you may not have lying around your house, but can be purchased for under $10.

* The template is no longer available online… so sorry. I couldn’t find it anywhere else on the internet either.  You will have to cut on the ears and such without a template.

    Love the paint chip craft. I have that one pinned too and really need to do it with my 5 year old this year. I have seen it done with hearts for valentine’s day as well! Maybe I will get around this week and finally get it done. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following! Look forward to getting to “know” you! :)

    I have yet to decorate for Easter because my brothers birthday is St. Patty’s Day, so even though the two are really close this year, I couldn’t skip it. Great ideas, we are going to start taking down our green tomorrow and get cracking on the spring goodies!
