Scissor, crayons, paper – delightful Easter egg arts & crafts
Is the Easter weather keeping you indoors? No Problem! With a bit of cardboard or heavy paper, a pair of scissors and glue, you can create simple, lovely Easter trifles.
Egg cups are quickly assembled. Simply cut out a broad strip of cardboard and fold it in half lengthwise. Now make a ring slightly smaller than the egg is wide, and glue the ends together. If desired, the egg cup can be colored or drawn on or decorated with bunny ears.
Creative little “bunnies” can have loads of fun with a blank piece of paper and finger-paints. How about a festive finger print picture? Plenty of green finger prints at the bottom of the page make a lovely spring meadow, yellow finger prints are the chicks and a rainbow of colors can be Easter eggs or flowers. Now outline the figures with colored pencils and the delightful Easter decoration is finished. Applying the same principle to cardboard, children can make their own Easter greeting cards.
A huge sensation in homemade Easter decorations is balloon chicks and balloon bunnies. The balloons are blown up half-way and knotted closed. Now cut out ears and legs from cardboard, and take a cotton ball for a tail and glue them to the balloon. You now have an adorable fluffy Easter bunny. Chicks can be made just as easily by crafting a beak, tail feathers and wings from colored paper. If desired, the balloons can be suspended from lamps or the ceiling, gently flying through the room.
