We are so exited for Spring. Warmer days, sunshine, flowers, new little baby animals.
We’ve been teaching Evie all about Spring and Easter lately and these fun crafts have really helped her to develop a recognition of the season even more.
They are also really short, simple and easy to do, which is great if your little one has a short attention span like mine. Here’s our 3 easy toddler easter crafts:
Our daughter is almost two years old, and although these crafts have been a great way to introduce cutting and sticking to her, they are designed for you to do alongside your toddler. For all the crafts, one of us did all the cutting out whilst Evie helped with all the sticking.
Top tip! It’s a really good idea to put down a matt and keep a bowl of water nearby. This will come in handy for those sticky, glittery hands.
PAPER PLATE BUNNY
Our first toddler easter craft is this paper plate bunny. Not only is it easy to do, but it’s lots of fun and so adorable.
- 2 paper plates
- cotton balls
- pink paint
- a picture
Cut out two circle shapes from the paper plates, one slightly bigger than the other. Cut out two shapes for the ears from some card.
Paint the ears pink and stick the body together. Paint your toddlers feet and get them to make footprints. Glue on a picture of your toddlers face on the smaller circle and have fun sticking cotton balls all over the bunny’s body. Add the feet at the end.
The second of our toddler easter crafts is this cute little felt chick. The most complex of all three crafts, but great for teaching your little one about the different parts of an animal.
You will need:
- Paper plate
- Yellow tissue paper
- Orange lollipop stick
- Orange Felt
- Googly Eyes
Cut out the chicks body from a paper plate or some card. Get your toddler to help you glue down the tissue paper, the lollipop stick, the googly eyes and the beak.
Evie loved helping to press down all of the items on this craft. As we were making the chick we were talking about all the different parts and getting Evie to name them and help to decide where they went.
EASTER EGG PICTURE
Our third toddler easter craft is this little easter egg. This was so easy to do, but Evie found it the most fun. Mostly because she was let loose with a pot of glitter!
You will need:
- Pom Poms
To make the little easter egg, simply cut an egg shape from some card and get your toddler to help stick down pom poms and sprinkle glitter.
