Between sickness and our big trip, we haven’t done much crafting around here lately, and Emma was really missing it. She asked me this morning if we could “decorate the entire house for Easter”. We haven’t gotten that far, but she was immensely pleased to decorate some eggs cut out of craft foam. Although, looking at this picture I think I need to work on my egg shapes a bit! You can buy egg-shaped craft foam to make this craft even simpler.
This was a very simple Easter craft: I cut the eggs out of craft foam, and the kids decorated them with stick-on jewels and markers. The purple and yellow ones are Emma’s, and the green and blue ones are Johnny’s. Lily made one, too, but she didn’t want it stuck on the wall or photographed, so you’ll have to imagine a pink egg with pink scribbles on it!
- Prep: Getting out craft foam, jewels, and markers – under two minutes
- Initial entertainment: at least half an hour
- Clean-up: 5 minutes, except Johnny had a meltdown when he couldn’t get his egg to stick on the wall the way he wanted that lasted maybe 8 minutes. He’s happy with it now, at least!
- Cost: Less than $5
- Lasting value: Emma feels like we are (more) ready for Easter, and all three children enjoyed decorating eggs together.
Here are some fun Easter crafts we’ve done in the past:
