Crafty Easter Fun

Easter is right around the corner, and with it comes plenty of fun for the whole family! From Easter egg hunts to egg dyeing, Easter is the perfect time to bond with your children over cute crafts.

Here are some fun ideas taken from around the web:

Easter Bunny Flower Pot

Blogger behind the idea: Kids Fun Reviewed

Best for kids ages: 4 and up

Materials Needed: 4-6 inch clay flower pot, purple acrylic paint, paint brush, googly eyes, purple pom-pom (medium), lavender and pink cardstock, craft glue, plant or flower

Instructions: Paint the flower pot, and set it aside to dry. While the flower pot is drying, make a pair of bunny ears from the lavender card stock and two inside ears from the pink card stock. Then add the googly eyes, the pom-pom for a nose and use the permanent marker to make a mouth. Glue the ears to the front of the pot, add the plant and voila!

Egg Dyeing is also always a fun tradition, but the folks at Huffington Post have set the standard very high this year. Taking ideas from various crafters and bloggers, they have compiled 9 Egg-Dyeing Designs To Change It Up ThisYear. This is one of our favorites!
