How to Make Origami Kids Easter Bunnies – Video Tutorial
Handprint Easter Cards
If your family absolutely loves sending cards during the holiday season, this is your chance to spread joy during the warmer months – plus it’s ridiculously easy. For this, start with postcard-sized sheets of cardstock. Have your child make a Y-shape with their dominant hand (thumb out and pinky up). Then, have them dip their hand in paint. Let them press the painted hand into place onto the cardboard, being careful not to smudge, and allow it to dry. Once it does, have them draw a face on the circle portion of the “bunny” and write an Easter above or below it. Your family and friends will love this piece of mail.
Easter Bunny Napkin Rings:
Get the kids involved with Easter brunch or dinner by having them make bunny napkin rings. To make these, just cut an empty toilet paper roll in half. Then, apply glue to the outside of the roll and cover it completely in white paper. You can use a paperclip to hold the paper to the roll while the glue sets. Trace two equally sized flower petal shapes on white paper and color the insides pink to stand for the ears. Add glue to bottom of ears and slip between cardboard roll and paper that is wrapped around it. Finally, once everything dries, have the kids draw a face on the bunny with crayons or supply them with googley eyes and pompoms and let their creativity go wild.
Peanut Butter Egg Nest
This is a simple recipe that your mini-me’s will love helping out with. Give them a bowl of thin pretzel sticks and let them break them up into smaller pieces. While they’re working, an adult should bring a ½ cup of sugar, and ½ cup of light corn syrup in a saucepan over medium heat. When the mixture bubbles and the sugar melts, stir in ¾ cup of peanut butter until smooth and pour the mixture over the pretzels. Once the pretzels are cool enough to handle, let the kids help you make the mixture into small balls. Then, make an indentation in the middle of each ball, so each one resembles a bird’s nest. Allow the nests to cool completely and plop a few jellybeans in the middle to represent eggs.
Easter Egg Trivia
Make this years Easter egg hunt a little more educational by turning it into a quiz. When filling the eggs, mix a few trivia questions in with the candy pieces and pocket change. Then, hide them as usual. Let the kids know that if they find the question and answer it correctly, they will be given an extra special prize – the dollar store is great for these. You’ll be surprised how fact they’ll be clamoring to show off what they know!
