With Easter just a couple of weeks away, it’s time to start planning how you’re going to spend it. Check out the ideas listed below for some fun activities to make Easter a bit more exciting this year:
- Easter Bunny Photo Craft: Turn your child’s face into a funny, framed art project with this Easter bunny photo craft. To make it, you’ll first need a mini frame – you can purchase one or cut it out of cardstock. Make ears by cutting a square of felt, folding it in half and cutting 2 ear shapes at the same time – do the same for the pink inner-ear part. Leave a bit of space at the bottom of the ears so you can attach them to the back of the frame. Then make the nose by cutting a small triangle shape of felt and glue three pom-poms on to it. Finish the frame by cutting a square for the teeth and gluing the teeth and pom-pom triangle to the bottom of the frame.
- Treasure Hunt: What would Easter be without the traditional Easter Egg Hunt? Make the hunt a bit more interesting by hiding your youngster’s basket, too with this Easter Treasure Hunt. Start by numbering plastic eggs that hold clues leading to their basket. Hide the basket, then write a clue to its location, place it inside egg number 6 and hide it. Write the clue to the hiding place of egg number 6, and place it in egg number 5, and so on. Start the hunt by giving your child the first clue in egg number 1 when they get up Easter morning.
- Easter Bunny Sock Puppet: This sock puppet craft is not only fun to make – you’re kiddos will also have a blast playing with their creations after. To make it, begin make a cut from the toe of a crew sock all the way to the beginning of the heel – make sure you cut through the center of the foot section so that you have two equal-sized ears. Turn the sock inside-out and use a whip stitch to stich the ears together. Then turn the socks right-side out, cut a nose out of pink felt and glue it on with tacky glue. Use felt, wiggly eyes or buttons for eyes and glue or stitch them into place.
