Here is a fun and funky Easter project for art lovers. My daughter and I had fun making these Picasso inspired Easter bunnies. Use paints, markers, gel pens or crayons to make your Easter bunnies. Check out some of our other artist inspired projects.
Have you ever tried salt painting? It is a fun and fascinating process and working with the glue is wonderful for honing those fine motor skills. That and the kids love shaking the salt. These salt painted Easter eggs are so much fun to make, you will want to make them again and again.
Here is an easy and fun bit of process art that the kids will love for Easter.
My daughter loves to draw. She is learning and getting better every day. We found some wonderful art books for her at the library with great techniques and drawing exercises. One that we loved was Art for Kids: Drawing (affiliate link). It is a great book for kids and adults alike. One simple and fun technique that we found in the book is the inspiration for this Easter process art. These watercolor scribble Easter eggs are so easy and they are a joy to make.
These paper mosaic Easter eggs are cute and easy to make and great for practicing scissors skills.
My daughter loves to cut. It is a very normal occurrence to see her sitting at her craft table cutting construction paper into little pieces. I have bowls of cut paper all over the house. This is one of the reasons that we love to make paper mosaics. Easter is only a few weeks away. If you are looking for a simple craft for Easter for the kids, these mosaic Easter eggs are perfect.
This adorable leaf bunny nature craft is perfect for the springtime and Easter.
We have a rhododendron bush in our front yard. I love the leaves from that bush and pick them off often to use for arts and crafts projects with my daughter. The last time we worked with them, my brother-in-law stopped over and suggested that we could make Easter bunnies with them because the leaves looked like bunny ears. Brilliant! Now why didn’t I think of that? Either way, I used his great idea and made this adorable leaf bunny.
Easter will be here & then over before we know it. Many homes will be dealing with the aftermath of Easter grass, jelly beans & all of those left-over plastic Easter eggs. I for one love those left-over plastic eggs because there are so many fun things that you can do with them.
My daughter is getting into the Easter spirit. We made some Easter printables a couple of weeks ago & she loved coloring & painting them, especially the eggs. She has been drawing up a storm lately & her main subject has been Easter eggs.
Why buy an Easter basket? If you have craft sticks and a glue gun, you can make your own craft stick Easter basket.
My daughter must be getting just as excited for the spring as I am. She has been laying out picnics on our living room floor for the past couple of weeks. I was impressed when she made herself a picnic basket out of a tissue box and pipe cleaners to carrying her food in. I was very proud of her for being so inventive.
A funny thing happened at my daughter’s preschool last week. One of the teachers mentioned to me that my daughter talks to her about all of the crafts that we do at home. She said to me in a very puzzled voice that my daughter was telling her about Kandinsky. This made me smile. I gave her a little lesson on Kandinsky last month and then did an art project with her inspired by his works. She remembered it well and when she sees circles now, she observes that they look like a Kandinsky. We did the same with Jackson Pollock last month & this weekend we learned about one of my personal favorites, Andy Warhol.
