Painted Easter Eggs

The whole family will love making these vibrant painted Easter eggs. For this Easter egg painting project, simply find several colors of washable tempera paint and ½-inch-wide flat paintbrushes, then go wild with designs!

Jewel Easter Eggs

Colorful rows of faux gemstones transform this Easter egg painting idea into a runway-inspired decoration. To make, paint papier-mâché eggs and let dry. Press with preassembled self-adhesive jewel sheets, such as self-stick gems.

Tattoo Easter Eggs

Think outside the box while decorating your Easter eggs this year. Temporary tattoos stick to eggs just like they would to your skin. With a steady hand, use a damp sponge to press and hold the image on the eggshell for 30 seconds.

CUTE EASTER BUNNY PAPER ROLLS – EASTER CRAFTS FOR KIDS

These little bunnies turned out so well! I love their sweet, little squat bodies. They were super simple to make. In fact, we are planning on making a whole bunch more to gift to my nieces and nephews. 

I know you have a few spare toilet paper rolls kicking around your house. Let’s put them to good use.

TOILET PAPER ROLL EASTER BUNNY

toilet paper rolls
pencil
scissors
white pom poms
acrylic paints – black, blue, red, yellow and white
paintbrushes
double-sided tape
cardstock – white, spring colors

The first step is drawing the ears on your toilet paper rolls. Find the side of the toilet paper roll that has the smoothest surface, this will be your bunny face side. Two loops for the ears and a line all the way around. Now trim off the excess and round out the Easter bunny ears.

Next up is painting the bunnies. What Easter colours do you like? You could totally go for a grey bunny colour – that’s more realistic. We decided to paint our cheerful Easter pink, yellow and blue. It will take a couple of coats of paint to get the coverage you like. Set them aside to dry completely.

Now it’s time to add the details. We cut the white inner ear pieces from white card stock and used double-sided tape to adhere them in place.

We painted the eyes, nose and mouth on the bunnies using black paint and a paintbrush. You could totally use googly eyes, but I liked the idea of painting the faces on. 

We used colourful cardstock to wrap around the bunny’s bodies. I like the idea of giving them colourful outfits, like the Easter Bunny my daughter had her taken with when she was a baby. Finally, finish off the bunnies with pompom tails…of course! Use a glue gun to adhere the tail in place.

I thought about giving these bunnies feet, like our toilet paper roll love bugs, that would look cute too. Add all the details you like. Have fun

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR TOILET PAPER ROLL EASTER BUNNIES?

Well, Easter is all about hiding chocolates. What if you placed bunnies around the house and filled them with chocolates. They also would make a lovely addition to the Easter dinner table. I have other plans for our bunnies. They’re going on a new spring wreath!

Making a Pot O’ Treats

I wanted to put together some treats for our kids in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. What is more fitting than a pot full of green treats!

Supplies:

  • Sour Cream and Onion Pringles
  • Sprite
  • Sour Skittles
  • Mint M & Ms
  • Mike and Ike (green package)
  • Wintergreen Tic Tacs
  • Spearmint Eclipse gum
  • Apple Sour Punch Straws
  • yellow tissue paper
  • green curling ribbon
  • plastic cauldron or black container
  • empty plastic bags, optional

Steps:

  1. Stuff two sheets of yellow tissue into the pot.
  2. Begin adding items to the container, starting with the biggest items. NOTE: I used some empty plastic shopping bags as filler in the bottom so that the items wouldn’t all fall to the bottom.
  3. Tie some curling ribbon around the container and curl the ends with scissors.
