Here’s what I love about kid crafts: You can have a pile of supplies and not know what to create, but a kid will come up with something pretty quick. We picked up three different sized paper eggs from the hobby store. I painted them white and let Mya choose what to do with them. I suggested making a Dada, Mama, and Baby bunnies or chicks. But she said she wanted a “big blue bunny,” so we went with it. And this is what was created.
WHAT YOU NEED
3 different sized paper mache eggs
sponge (or paint brush)
hot glue gun + glue
We’ll spare you the step-by-step how-to since this is pretty straight forward. Mya painted it blue with a sponge, I painted the white areas, I manned the hot glue gun, and she sharpied on some whiskers and eyeballs. A quick lil’ project and she was pretty proud of her big blue bunny head.
When Derek got home from work, the Easter bunny (with the help from our awesome neighbors!) hid some eggs for Mya. It was her first egg hunt in our yard.
Each Easter egg contained a blue rock (from the pet store fish tank aisle) and one of these animals.
Her Easter basket contained the Countablock book, Little Owl Lost book, a Sofia puzzle, Sofia stickers, a blue bunny (I love Jellycat stuffed animals!), and a grass grow kit (you can find at Target in the gardening section).
What’re your Easter plans?!
