Easter Egg Crafts

10. Painted Noodles DIY Easter Egg – Kids love to pick things up. Touch them. Feel them. Ask questions. It’s how they learn and grow. This craft uses painted dry noodles to make a more tactile experience for kids as they decorate an Easter egg. I love it!

16. Stamped Easter Egg – There’s something about stamps that is just so fun for kids! They love the ease of coating the stamp in paint, pressing the stamp down, and revealing a perfect shape. For the preschooler that is working on their coordination, these Easter egg stamps are going to produce lots of smiles! (and circles haha)

17. Tissue Paper Egg – This art project for kids uses tissue paper to make a beautiful suncatcher to hang in the window. When the light hits it just right, it will produce rays of glowing light that are almost magical! It is pretty similar to the suncatcher mentioned earlier, except this one uses tissue paper rather than markers. Definitely a project your kids will love!

Grab your popsicle sticks and glue gun, because you won’t want to miss out on this kid-friendly craft.
