Make This Easter An "EGG" Stra Special One!

Posted in

Easter is on its way! If you have kids around, it becomes all the more fun. The egg hunting is one thing your child wouldn’t want to miss!

Be it Christmas or Halloween; Easter or just a birthday party, when you make it special for them, the little angels become so very happy and the smile on their faces that follows is just priceless.
It’s true that sometimes our busy schedule do not let us spare that extra time when we can sit and plan ahead for each celebration. That is the reason I thought of sharing some ideas with you. Hope you’ll like them and make this Easter an “egg”stra special one for your child.
 
 There is hardly any child who doesn’t like doing crafts. Once in a while sitting with them doing some project or some crafts is very helpful for the child’s emotional and cognitive development.
So here are some  "Egg" ceptional craft ideas for Easter which you might find helpful:
 
Preparing the Easter Eggs for Dyeing:
Before decorating your eggs, you need to hard-boil them.
Place the eggs in a large saucepan. Add cold water; enough to
completely cover the eggs. Place on medium-high heat and bring
water to a gentle boil. Reduce heat and simmer eggs for 9 minutes.
Remove from heat and fill with cold water. The eggs must be completely cool and dry, to decorate successfully.
You can get creative when decorating the eggs with your child. Make them colorful. If you are coloring the egg it is advisable that you use the food coloring. However if you are using acrylic paint then DO NOT LET YOU CHILD EAT THE EGGS!
 
Bunny Rabbit Ears
Very simple, but very fun!

Materials:
    paper 
     tape   
     scissors 

 Instructions:
       Make a strip of paper long enough to go around the child's head (you may need to tape to pieces end to end to get   it long enough.
   Cut two long ears out of construction paper.
         Tape the ears onto the strip.
  
       OPTIONAL:  Decorate the strip with stickers/markers/etc as desired
  
       Tape the strip in a loop so it fits on the head .
