MNM's Make: Fun Easter Crafts

Are you contemplating a wet or cold indoors Easter? Trying to conjure up some Easter fun for you and the kids? Here are two simple fun ideas for you to try:

Paper Plate Bunnies



















Idea from A Little Delightful

You will need:

1 Paper or foam plate
White and pink card
Pink pipe cleaner (chenille stem)
Pink pompom
Your children's feet 
Glue

These really are as easy as they look. The best bit is creating the ears. Get your kids to stand on the pink card and draw around their feet to make the ear shapes and listen to them giggle as the pencil tickles their toes on the way round. It's way cute having different sized ears for your different sized kids!

Once you have cut around the pink card, glue this onto some stronger white card, cut around the white card leaving a small extra border and glue onto the plate.

Cut out some round shapes for eyes, colour in and glue onto plate.

Glue on the pompom and pipe cleaners for nose and whiskers.


Chick and Bunny Treat Holders


Here's a cute place to keep the kids eggs in after the Easter egg hunt.




























Idea sourced from Hostess with the Mostess via Pinterest

You'll need:


2 foam or paper cups
Yellow, orange, white and pink card
Wiggly eyes
1 white and 1 orange pipe cleaner (chenille stem)
1 pink pompom and 1 white pompom
