EASY EASTER CRAFTS FOR KIDS AND ADULTS

 

With Easter just around the corner and the kids being at home, I thought I would talk about some easy Easter crafts you and your kids can make to decorate the house.

 

These activities will keep your kids amused and make your home more festive. I know it makes my home more festive as I always make crafts with the kids in our family and extended family. We love to all get together and make crafts and it also gives us the chance to spend more quality time with extended family.

 

FOR THE KIDS

DIY EASTER EGG GARLAND

 

It’s a fun activity for the children to decorate the house. You can hang the garland in the kid’s bedrooms or in their playroom or even in the living room.

 

This fun activity is not only for children but it can be a family activity. This DIY garland is an activity that will keep your children busy for a couple of hours at least (wink).

 

You can print out the free Easter egg shapes here and let the children colour them in with pencils or crayons.

 

Once coloured and cut then all you have to do is apply glue to the paper and add the string and your garland is ready to hang. 

 

FOR THE ADULTS

CANDLE DECORATING

 

This too can be for the kids and adults.

 

All you need is:

  1. A candle(s) of your choice
  2. Some decorating materials (ribbon/stickers/glitter/felt shapes/wrapping paper/craft paper/beads/gems and anything else you may want to decorate with)
  3. Glue gun or adhesive glue
  4. Scissors

Materials and Crafts to use to decorate the candle

 

 

Now all you have to do is be creative. Cut out shapes from different paper or add different ribbons (thick/thin/colours/textures) and glue them to the candle.

FOR THE FAMILY

DIY YARN/WOOL SILHOUETTES

 

This is a unique craft that is fun all year round. You can adapt this to any occasion you like and even make it into décor for your bedroom.

 

You will need two pieces of paper with the outline of the silhouette of your choice. The one paper you will cut out the silhouette while the other you will leave it as is.

Next you will need different colours of yarn or wool, scissors and glue.

Wool and Yarn

Cut strips of yarn/wool to the length or width of your sketch and then glue them in place. You can glue them in lines, swirls or however you like.

Cutting strips of wool

Glue the strips down

 

Once you have covered the sketch with yarn/wool, place on top the paper with the cut out of the silhouette and glue it in place.

There you have it. All done! Now you can frame it or leave it as is.

Here are 3 free designs for yarn/wool silhouettes

    How cute are the scrabble letters!? I’d love to see more crafts ideas using these little wooden letter plates because then I might have to get out my glue gun as well =) =) =)

      They are very cute indeed! There are soooo many crafts you could make but my favourite is the fridge magnet ones! I will think about this and maybe write about some simple crafts that everyone can make with the scrabble pieces! Thank you for the idea!
