Happy Peepin' Easter


Happy Peepin’ Easter

Written by Angela


I love making cards for family and friends around the holidays!  My two year old loves to do craft time as well so this just makes for a fun time!

This month we have made some Easter cards. These are fun, simple and keep little hands occupied.

Supplies:

Colorful scrapbook paper (for eggs and cards)

Elmer’s glue

Shaving cream

Yellow food coloring

Paper plate

Fork

Yellow bird feathers

Googly eyes

Orange construction paper

*My tip is to make one ahead of time so that your little one can envision what you are making.

I started by cutting scrapbook paper squares small enough to fit into an envelope to mail.  I then used a paper plate and mixed the Elmer’s glue and shaving cream (equal amounts of each). I stirred it together and added some yellow food coloring. My son used the fork and splattered the mixture onto the scrapbook squares. On some of the scrapbook squares I had him glue the yellow bird feathers. We did a few of each kind.

 

Once he was done with the shaving cream/glue mixture, I gave him some googly eyes to stick on and an orange construction paper nose.



I then used some more colorful scrapbook paper and cut ovals out of them. I zigzag cut the center and glued it to the chick as if it had just popped out of the egg!

Happy Easter!
