When I was growing up, it was a tradition in our home to make hollow sugar eggs with a little Easter scene in them. Damp sugar was firmly packed into plastic Easter egg halves, hollowed out, and then allowed to dry. Once dry, we assembled and decorated them with frosting, and then placed a small figure of a bunny or chick in some Easter grass inside, and usually some small jellybeans to represent colored eggs. Here’s a method to make your own faux sugar eggs that are just as fun to make, but offer a more permanent decoration that you can use year after year.
One of my earliest Easter memories actually comes a few weeks after Easter. Our living room had become super smelly, and no one could figure out why. Eventually, we discovered that my dad had hidden an Easter egg a little too well, and no one was able to find it until our noses led it to us! Save yourself from experiencing this with these fun Easter Egg crafts that won’t go bad!
Here in Portland Spring is in full swing – the constant rain brings us early spring flowers. This year the change in seasons seemed to happen overnight and all of a sudden everything is in bloom. Whether spring has begun in your area or if you are still snowed or rained in, here are some bright, spring themed sensory play activities to interest your little ones.
Rainbow Rice can be used in the sensory table to practice measuring and color classification, but it can also be used in many other crafts projects. You can even use it like sand art to create layers of colorful designs.
It’s hard to believe, but spring is right around the corner, and so is Easter. I’ve been seeing tons of bunny crafts popping up lately, and they’re all just too cute for words! Bunnies are an adorable way to celebrate spring, and craft those winter months away!
I’m getting a jump on Easter crafting this year. Here are some of my favorite Easter crafts to share with the kids.
If you dread the mess of working with dyes and actual eggs but still want to involve the kids in making their own unique, beautiful eggs ,these candy and toy filled wool felted eggs are the perfect alternative.
I’m love baking, but live with a health nut, so when it comes to consuming my baking creations, I’m on my own. That’s why I give away baked goods for pretty much any special occasion. I made some French macarons for my mom for her birthday and wanted a quick and easy way to give them to her that looked much better than a plastic container. I think I’ll be making many more of these little treat boxes for all of the recipients of my sweet treats.
