5 Easter Activities for Kids

Tissue Paper Flowers Craft for Kids

 

Tissue Paper Flowers

Ah, Spring!  Celebrate the beauty of the season with tissue paper flowers in Easter-inspired colors.  This activity is best suited for children four and older as it requires a bit of patience and care that younger learners may not have mastered.  All you will need is colored tissue paper, child scissors, and pipe cleaners to have a house brimming with colorful Easter-hued flowers! Find the complete Tissue Paper Flowers directions here.

 
 
Paper Plate Easter Bunny Craft for KidsPaper Plate Easter Bunny

The Paper Plate Easter Bunny requires only a few key materials and can easily be used as a decoration around the house.  To cut down on any glue mess, use tape to attach the construction paper pieces.  If you have young ones who may not be able to cut paper without assistance, cut out the pieces ahead of time.

Some Bunny Loves You Photo Booth Mask Prop

Some Bunny Loves You Wreath/Mask

The great thing about the Some Bunny Loves You Wreath is that it can double as a photo booth prop!  Simply attach a dowel to the bottom of the wreath with a piece of tape and you have an instant bunny mask.  Your pint-sized Easter guests can make one in about a half-hour with only a paper plate, cotton balls, two strips of pink construction paper, and a bottle of glue (or a glue stick for the faint of heart).  The key to making this activity easy and successful for the little ones is to cut the center of the paper plate and the ears out prior to giving it to them to complete.  It will make it much easier.
