Easter Crafts for Kids
As the Easter holidays are nearing, at Questor Insurance we know that finding activities to keep the children entertained can be challenging. That’s why we have put together some fun ideas for Easter Art and Craft activities.
Need an Easter bonnet for school or an event? Make the perfect one at home! To create the base you can use large sheets of cardboard or cheat a little and decorate a straw hat. The most important feature of the bonnet is the decorations, whether it be with ribbons, bows, glitter, flowers, buttons, pretend animals or Easter eggs, make your bonnet one of a kind.
Get out your apron and mixing bowls and make some fancy Easter biscuits. Why not use lemon or orange zest for some spring flavours and pick shaped cutters and icing for unique Easter designs. If you make a few too many why not box some up as special Easter gifts for friends or family. When packaging them don’t forget to use ribbons and brightly coloured paper or wrapping.
Decorate eggs to make fun Easter decorations, the more imaginative the better! Some of our favourite design ideas include decorating eggs as people, mythical creatures, flowers and animals. You could even make a whole eggquarium!
When decorating the eggs use a range of paint, paper and pens to get the best effect. If you have the time you could even make a back drop or some scenery for the eggs.
Homemade Easter Cards:
Make some homemake Easter cards for friends and family, choose Easter themed designs such as chicks, eggs, rabbits and even spring vegetables. Don’t forget to use a range of colours to really capture the magic of Easter.
Create tasty Easter nests using rice crispies or cornflakes and chocolate, take a look below for how to make your tasty Easter Nests.
What you need:
- Rice Crispies or Corn Flakes
