With Easter being a just 3 weeks I figured what better thing to do today then color some Easter pictures. Ive been battling a horrible cold all week and haven’t wanted to go outside and play to much so I’ve been trying to come up with fun things to keep the little entertained in the house. I found these coloring sheets online so I figured Id share them with you! Have a wonderful Sunday!! And happy early Easter!
What better way to preserve your child’s art and tiny size? This craft gives you art to hang on the wall and gives a beautiful reminder of how tiny their hand was. My daughter made these for her 2 grandmas. They are going to love them. I wish I had made a 3rd so I could keep one I guess we will have to fix that and make another! It was so sunny yesterday so I figured lets take the table in the front yard and get to painting. To my surprise there was no paint on her, the ground….or anywhere but on the paper.?. I guess she is growing up but I know if we had done this inside it probably would have been a different story.
This is super easy for all ages and makes an excellent gift. I would love to see how yours turn out or hear how much fun you guys had, Enjoy!
Washable Paint (in case you have a little one who might get messy)
Paintbrushes, or fingers
Set up a paint station for your kid.
Let them go crazy and paint whatever they want let dry completely.
Trace their hand on a piece of scrap paper. Then retrace on your scrapbook paper and cut out.
Mothers Day is this Sunday, so if you are scrambling and not sure what to make mom or grandma, have your little one make this card. Who doesn’t love a homemade gift from their favorite little one/s.
My daughter in class today made a fun mothers day card, and I figured I’d share it with all of you. It’s fun for toddlers or bigger kids, the younger they are the more help they will need from you. I hope you all have a wonderful Mothers Day and enjoy your weekend.
Happy Mothers Day to my mom, mother-in-law, & grandmas love you all!!
1 piece white paper
1 piece of colored construction paper, cut into fun shape for inside of card
little squares of tissue wrapping paper
a young ones imagination
Let your little one have a ball creating a mothers day card.
Theirs don’t need to look like this. I like the ones that show their creativity more! My daughter had a ball with the marker, then she told me that was a picture of a kitty cat!
My daughter made this fun craft at the library story time a few weeks ago. All the kids thought it was pretty fun and it’s a way to document their cute little hand size. Hope you and your kids have fun creating strawberries.
red & green construction paper
Cut a strawberry shape out of the red paper.
Trace your child’s hand on the green paper and glue it to the top of your strawberry.
Let them color with the black marker, your example can have little seed dots but your child will probably make a neat design like my daughter did
My daughters strawberry!
Grandma was very excited when we visited her after the library and she got to hang this on her fridge.
For all of you moms out there freaking out that you don’t have a trick or treat bag for your little one, have no fear. This homemade pumpkin bag is perfect for little ones to collect a little bit of candy and they have something fun to do before they get all dress up. I hope that this helps everyone, You could always use other colors and shapes to create other characters! Enjoy!!
1 brown paper lunch bag
orange and black construction paper
of course goodies to put in it
You or your little one cut out shapes for your pumpkins eyes, nose, mouth and a strip for a handle.
Glue your face on the bag.
Staple the handle on and now you have a cute pumpkin trick or treat bag.
All these pumpkins have great character, I’d love to see how yours turn out!
My almost 2 year old helped me with this craft but I basically put the thing together, so depending on your child’s age you will probably have to help assemble this adorable little spider hat. This craft is not only for Halloween time I just chose to make it around Halloween. Enjoy!
Black Construction paper
2 strips that are 11″ x 3″ for headband
6-8 strips that are 1″ x 11″ for the legs
2 small circles for the eyes
White Construction Paper
2 circles for eyes
Cut your black construction paper into strips. You will need 2 strips that are 11″ x 3″ to make the headband and 6-8 strips that are 1″ x 11″ for the legs.
Glue the small black circle onto the white circles to create the eyes.
Measure your child’s head to figure out how big to the headband part, tape together.
Glue or tape the eyes onto the headband.
Fold your legs accordion style and tape the ends on the inside of your headband.
Voila you now have a pretty cool spider hat and I suggest singing Itsy Bitsy Spider lyrics below!
Unfortunately my daughter would not keep the hat on for longer then 3 seconds so she thought it was fun to have her friends try it on. Hopefully your kid enjoys wearing it.
The itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again
What better way to welcome fall then with a fun craft to celebrate the leaves changing colors. You only need a few items and your child can have a blast making a tree with beautiful colored leaves. My daughter had so much fun with this, I think her favorite part was ripping the paper into small pieces. I would love to see your child’s finished product and will display on here if you give the ok. Happy fall everyone!
