Easter Idea Blog – Ideas for Easter Crafts, Easter Decorations, Easter Dinner and Easter Flowers




Its the easter holidays – and i need things to keep my 5 yo boy busy. Any ideas?

About the time my son turned 5 he became interested in “drawing” realistic pictures, etc. So I would provide some themed paper shapes and get him started on a mural. I’d leave it up and he’d add to it over a 3 days to a week. It still is a popular activity.

They very much like to explore…and they CAN think logically about most things…so I was more willing to provide my son with a whole “palette” of paint colors, paint tools, etc and let him explore on his own. We turned them into mobiles, used them for scissor practice, collages, cards, etc.

This age still loves sensory—shaving cream play…making and playing with playdough…water and rocks, etc.

I know those aren’t “easter” ideas and not necessarily crafts but maybe it will help trigger ideas for your child. Have you asked him what he would be interested in doing? The local library will have craft books he can browse through, computer games he can check out, etc.

Have fun!

A fun thing to do is to get white paper plates, glitter, markers, and anything else you may have laying around (feathers…etc). Then cut from the plates the shapes of eggs, and decorate your own eggs. Finally, take a whole punch and some string to hang up your creations. 🙂

Happy Easter!

Another fun one to try is an Easter Bunny mask, using paper plates and cotton balls for the fur.

There are a lot of great ideas on the following website, as well:

Cutting out pictures is the best thing for children to do because they learn small eye-hand coordination which they need for reading. For some children it is very hard to learn.
The many ideas others have suggested are good for fun.

You can use a paper plate to make a mask.
You can color and decorate it and later cut holes into it to make the mouth and eyes!
