Easter is coming up, and there have been so many great Easter ideas floating around the blogosphere. At last week’s Kids’ Co-op, several bloggers shared some wonderful Easter egg crafts and Easter egg decorating ideas.
I don’t think we’ll do too much egg dyeing before Easter itself. After all, there’s only so many eggs our family can eat! So I loved seeing some creative Easter egg crafts that don’t involve real eggs but still allow kids to get into the holiday spirit.
However, when it comes to decorating Easter eggs, I am learning that there is no need to feel limited to simply dipping eggs in store bought dyes. I hope the ideas below will inspire you as much as they inspired me!
Toddlers and preschoolers will love glueing pom poms onto Easter egg shapes with this cute pom pom Easter eggs craft from Minne Mama.
I love the bright colors of these painted foil eggs from Planet Smarty Pants.
This Easter egg rice art from Where Imagination Grows would be fun for young children. I love the bright colors of the rice they used.
This simple button and pom pom Easter egg craft from FSPDT is fun but also very easy to pull together at the last minute if you need an Easter craft idea. (updated 12/15/14: link removed as it no longer works)
And I loved this clever idea from Treading on Lego who noticed that the curved shape of a potato masher would be great for making potato masher printed Easter eggs.
Several bloggers also shared some beautiful and fantastic ideas for decorating Easter eggs in new and creative ways. For example, Sparkling Buds did some beautiful egg decoration with stickers.
And look at the vibrant colors on these liquid water color eggs from Mess For Less.
I ‘ve seen a lot of washi tape crafts lately, although I’ve never actually used it. I thought these washi paper Easter eggs from Crystals Tiny Treasures turned out beautifully.
Finally, if your kids enjoy baking soda and vinegar activities as much as mine do, they will love making these baking powder Easter eggs from Mess for Less.
I hope you enjoyed these great Easter egg crafts and decorating ideas!
