With Easter drawing near, I thought I’d put together a list of fun and easy Spring and Easter crafts for kids.
My toddler loves to make crafts. She needs quite a bit of help still, but it’s a lot of fun for her to help make something out of a few crafts supplies I have on hand.
And I never go out of my way to buy supplies to make something — I always look for craft ideas that only require materials I already have on hand.
Pinterest is a great resource for finding quick, easy Easter crafts for kids (or any craft ideas you’re looking for)! When the mood strikes, I pull up Pinterest and look for something that is both cute and simple.
Here are a few common kids’ craft supplies you might want to have on hand to make these easy spring & Easter crafts for toddlers.
2. toilet paper rolls
4. cotton balls and/or cotton pads
6. paper plates
7. pom poms
8. googly eyes
9. felt fabric
10. kids’ scissors
11. glue sticks
12. tacky glue
How to Make a Very Hungry Caterpillar Craft for Spring
This morning, Kenna asked to do a craft, so I said okay…found a cute, simple paper flowers craft for us to make…and went downstairs to get the supplies.
That was when I realized that all our craft supplies are already boxed up (we’re in the process of moving)!
So we’ll have to update when we have a chance to do a spring craft…for now, here’s a picture of her Very Hungry Caterpillar that we made together a few weeks ago. (As you can see, Kenna had to add her personal touches, including a tail. 🙂
1. First, cut a leaf shape out of a piece of green construction paper and glue it to another sheet of construction paper.
2. Then make your caterpillar, using a cardboard toilet paper roll (or a medicine cup in our case, since we didn’t happen to have any toilet paper rolls that were empty just then) and some paint. I let Kenna do this part, with a little guidance on placement.
3. And once the paint dries, draw the eyes, mouth, antennas, legs, etc. onto the caterpillar.
