Posted by Erika on Mar 28, 2009 in Egg Crafts

Instead of age-old tradition of dying Easter eggs, make Easter 2009 unique with some easy Easter crafts ideas for kids. This year, punch up your Easter egg decorating with cute plastic Easter egg bunnies.

Easter Craft Ideas

To make the egg bunnies, you’ll need:

  • 1 Plastic Easter egg
  • 2 sheets of foam/construction papers (one white)
  • 2 large googly eyes
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

How to make:

1. Cut two pairs of big bunny ears out of foam/construction paper sheets. Cut the white pair twice as large.

2. Glue the smaller (pink) ears onto the white ears. Make sure the bottoms are aligned.

3. Glue the ears approximately 1-inch apart on one end of the egg.

4. Use your remaining paper scraps to make a bunny face. Use a pencil to draw whiskers. Apply the face with glue and allow to dry.

5. Finally, apply the googly eyes. Put candies into your egg bunny to make it a fun-filled surprise gift for children.

Easy Easter Egg Crafts for Kids

Posted by Erika on Mar 25, 2009 in Egg Crafts , Family Crafts

With Easter around the corner, here are some easy, interesting Easter egg craft ideas to try with your kids.

To design eye-catching Easter eggs, you’ll need to need to paint or dye the eggs in different colors (we found non-toxic scrapbook paint works the best). Use paper punches to create decorations for your eggs, and glue the craft punches onto the egg once the paint dries.

For older children, try making these googly-eyed Easter eggs.

Apply your googly-eyes to the egg first, they will help define the rest of the face. Next, draw a mouth and hair using a non-toxic marker. Give your egg a nose by gluing down a button or piece of felt. Lastly, accessorize your eggs as necessary with paper cutouts.

Happy Easter!
