The countdown to Easter is on and we’re sharing two super simple Easter crafts for kids. For a demo of both crafts, scroll to the end of this post and check out our segment on CTV Morning Live. Happy crafting!
This is a cute idea that uses your kid’s hands to make the wings!
What You’ll Need
Cut all of your shapes out first. The wings are shaped by tracing your little one’s hands on the yellow cardstock with a pencil. For the chick’s body, cut out a circle using the yellow cardstock. Use the orange cardstock to cut out the feet and a beak. The beak is the shape of a diamond.
Pierce holes with a pencil or scissors on both sides of the yellow circle and at the top of the wings. Attach the wings to the circle using two fasteners.
Using your glue stick, glue the legs onto the back of the yellow circle. Fold the orange diamond in half to make the beak. Apply glue to one half of the folded diamond and attach it to the front of the chick. Apply glue to the googly eyes and attach them to the front of the chick.
If this is a gift for a loved one, you can have your little one draw a picture or sign their name on the back of the chick. It’s a creative keepsake and a homemade Easter card!
We know the Easter Bunny loves carrots, so this is a little treat that would make a sweet gift. These paper carrots would also make a cute centrepiece in a wicker basket.
What You’ll Need
Cut a rounded-bottom triangle into the orange cardstock. The size of the triangle just depends on how big you want to make the carrots.
Cut a wide strip out of the green cardstock. Make sure the green band wraps around the entire top of the carrot and you have a little bit of overlap. Cut slits into the green paper, but make sure to leave about two centimetres uncut at the bottom so you have room to add glue.
Once the pieces are cut, add a strip of glue to one side of the orange cardstock and roll the paper to make a cone. You can also add a piece of clear tape to make sure it stays together.
Take your green band of paper and add glue directly under the cut strips. Wrap the green paper around the top of the carrot and press down as you go to make sure it sticks. You can add another piece of tape here to make sure it stays together.
