DIY Easter Holiday Decor for Kids
As the winter weather winds down and the spring sun starts shining, the Easter holiday gets closer. If you’re looking for a creative way to decorate your home for the holiday, without spending too much, check out these easy kid-created Easter art activity ideas!
Trace a bunny face onto card stock paper, using several different pastel colors. Use a stencil, cookie cutter or your own template (draw the bunny onto cardboard and cut it out). Your child can cut the bunny tracings out, punch two holes in the paper (one on each side) and tie the rabbits together with thin ribbon. Depending on how artsy your child wants to get, they can color in the faces, add googley eyes or even glue on fuzzy craft felt.
Welcome the holiday with this over-sized Easter craft. Use butcher paper or plain gift wrap to create a holiday banner. Start by writing, “Happy Easter!” on the paper. Your child can paint over the letters using spring-themed tempera colors. After the paint dries they can add bunnies, chickies and other holiday designs.
Create special holiday placemats for your Easter meal. Invite your child to design their own Easter-themed picture, using 8×10-inch card stock paper, crayons or markers. Your child can also dip their hands in tempera paint and create bunny-shaped prints using two fingers as ears! Laminate the drawings or paintings to create spill-proof placemats.
