Many items found around the home can be used to make craft projects with children. One activity for a group of kids and any toddlers around this time of year is making Easter crafts. Easter is a great time to welcome spring and to have time to spend with friends and family members. If you are familiar with the Easter decorations found at many retail stores, then making your own is a great idea.
The best thing about homemade Easter crafts is you may have all the materials you’ll need by gathering them from the various areas of your home. Many of the crafts you can make will require items you often throw away or add to your recycle bin. This can include cardboard paper towel or toilet paper rolls and even the paper plates in your kitchen. All you need to do is start saving these items to use for future Easter craft projects.
A few tools will be needed to complete most DIY Easter crafts for toddlers and young kids. You need a pair of scissors to cut various materials. Make sure that scissors are not sharp to the touch and are safe for young children to use. A trip to a local craft store or dollar store may be necessary to have the supplies that are needed. If you have young children, you probably already have a good supply of craft foam, paints, pipe cleaners, paper, kid-friendly glue, and more in a craft box.
You may require popsicle sticks and colored pipe cleaners. Of course, the best way to get the popsicle sticks is to eat the popsicles. You can also order items you need from Amazon and a variety of other sites online.
Just make a list of Easter crafts to do based on the age of the kids or toddlers you need to entertain.
