We started out by making a couple of new clucking chicken. This is something I did with my mother when I was little, so it's fun to make them with my boys now. It only involves empty cans, paper and a piece of string and best of all, when you're done, they really make a clucking noice when pulling the string. I did a tutorial on them last year, you can find it here.
Making a tulip painting is easy and the boys really enjoyed it. Just stamp a paint dipped fork on paper and you immediately have the shape of a tulip. I found this one last year on pinterest and it's good for at least a half hour of fun.
Something the boys have been asking to make for quite some time now is the egg carton daffodil. There is a tutorial inside our egg cartons on how to make these little flowers and as soon as big rascal spotted this he wanted to make some. You do need a bit of patience between the painting and assembling of the daffodils. The load of paint they applied took a long time to dry.
Crayon egg dyeing
A new craft (well new to me) I found on pinterest is to boil a couple of eggs and start drawing on them with crayons while they are still warm. The crayons melt a little, making the drawing easier. I love that this is craft is mess free while little rascal still had a lot of fun. White eggs would probably work better though. But a nice alternative to painting the eggs.
So, did you make Easter decorations with your kids? Please share, I always love to add a new craft to our repertoire!
