I almost forgot that Easter was this weekend! These days, it just seems as though every day is Groundhog Day! And quiet honestly, I’m even more exhausted now than I’ve ever been! I know you feel my pain! Before we started self isolating, I didn’t get to run over to Michael’s like I normally would have to prepare for this occasion. So, I thought I’d come up with at least 5 super simple Easter crafts that my toddler would love. Both to help pass the time, and to make sure we’re still continuing on with our regular traditions. Believe me, you don’t have to be artsy or crafty to make these!
1. Chick Handprint
This is really cute and will also double up as a memento of how small your toddler’s hands were at the time. Simply trace their hand on a piece of paper and have them colour it in with a yellow crayon. You can help them draw in eyes, a beak and stick legs. Don’t forget to write the date on the back if you’re planning on keeping this!
2. Bunny Outline
You can hand-draw a bunny outline, or print one off Google. Give your kids whatever tools you have to decorate. I cut out different shapes from card stock and patterned paper that I have. You could also use crayons, pencil crayons, glitter, pompoms, stickers, washi tape…you get the idea!

3. Easter Egg Decorating Contest
If you want to forgo the actual dyed egg, take your cue from the last idea and just draw an outline of a large egg on a piece of paper. Then your kids decorate it to their hearts content! You can have them decorate several, cut it out, and string them together to make a garland of Easter eggs!

4. Bunny Face With Hand Ears
Trace your kids hand on a white piece of paper, OR construction paper. This will be the bunny’s ears. If using construction paper, use the same colour to cut out a round face. Draw in the eyes, mouth and whiskers. If you have pipe cleaners, use those as the whiskers. I just cut strips of plain white paper and glued it to the nose.
5. Easter Egg Wreath
Cut out the middle of a paper plate, leaving about 2 inches. Draw small egg outlines and have your kids decorate them. Glue or tape each egg around the circle until there is no more room. I used pre-printed scrapbooking paper for this wreath and tried to choose pastel colours to match the Easter vibe.
There you have it! 5 super easy Easter crafts that your toddlers can make. Let me know if you try one of these! Better yet, tag me @myfavouritelifevancouver if you take a pic of it and post it on Instagram.
Happy Easter to those who celebrate. And even if you don’t, I hope you all stay healthy and safe.
