This really is an easy craft for kids – and super quick too.. and of course “no mess”. Just fill the bottom with treats and then stuff a little tissue paper to secure them. A great low mess activity and an opportunity to practice drawing a bunny face!

A long standing favourite of ours are these Egg Carton Chooks. Easy and fun.. These are another fantsic low mess activity! You don’t even need a black marker to add any features. Just a little felt and glue.

Similarly, we adore this Rocking Paper Plate Lamb – we made this in my daughter’s reception class before and substituted gotten wool with shredded paper – a great way to reduce costs and upcycle in a group environment.. however we DO love the cotton wool version too. Just wonderfully tactile.

These Paper Plate Chick Sewing Craft are  a recent guest post on Red Ted Art by the talented I Heart Crafty Thingsfollow. Aren’t they simply ADORABLE? I love how fabulous they look, but also how they are a great fine motore activity for young kids and a wonderful Introduction to sewing for the smallest (and biggest) among us.

Well.. you can’t have Paper Plate Crafts for Easter, without a Paper Plate Easter Basket or Paper Plate purse (or two), here we have a super simple paper plate purse that the kids will love to decorate with stickers, as well as a more tricky one for the older kids. Both look adorable!

Easter egg crafts for preschoolers and kindergarten

We are not really a fan of plastic Easter eggs but prefer working with hollow eggs instead. We love decorating REAL eggs.. and though preschoolers and toddlers  may not always have the dexterity to work with eggs, we STILL think it is never too early to introduce them. They will love the responsibilty of working with something so precious.. and if they break the egg shell.. does it really matter? Alternatively, some of the egg decorating for preschool ideas below work really well for hard boiled eggs too! Which make a great addition to the Easter Table! Love these kind of hollow egg Easter decorations.

Spotty Eggs – egg decorating doesn’t get much easier than these adorable and quite effective spotty eggs. As mentioned, these are great for hard boiled eggs at the Easter Breakfast table too! These are great low mess activity too!

Drip Paint Eggs – ok, this one is not for the faint hearted.. you will have to love paint to do this one.. but the results are so very pretty!

One of our favourites to do on Easter Sunday… Wax Crayon Eggs. The process is wonderful – watch the crayons melt.. then eat your eggs!

Not disimilar to the Spotty Eggs.. but the same process in reverse – create pretty patterns with this “Paint resist” technique!
