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




My neice and nephew are spending the night with me this Friday. My neice is 3, nephew-6. I want to come up with something that they could make their grandma (my mom) for Easter. She’s the type of person that saves every silly art craft her kids have ever made, so for that reason I want it to be something more special than paper and glue, something that will last a long time and be special. Does anyone have any ideas on what this could be?

You could have them do handprint crafts:

You could also do photo frames – take the kids to the craft store and let them pick out a plain wooden frame and some decorative items (or let them raid your stash). They can paint the frames and glue their decorations on them.

They can paint tiles to be used as trivets

If you can, take a video of them doing the project and maybe they can talk a little bit about their grandmother. If she doesn;t see them often, it’s a nice thing for her to be able to put the tape in and watch it when she’s missing them.

Buy some foam stickers, stick on magnet strips and decorative paper. Take a picture of the kids and let them make frames using the decorative paper to put the pictures in. Then stick the magnets on the back so your mom can hang them on her fridge.

My mom is the exact same way yours is, I wish my grandma was.

You could have them make a bouquet of flowers for her out of construction paper and pipe cleaners. Spray a little perfume on them to make them smell good.

Another option is magnets. Buy a roll of sticky back magnets and let the kids use foam, paper, fabric, beads, ect to decorate them.

My kids also like to write books as special gifts. They write the story (with help) and draw pictures for it. The three year old can help color it, though the story line will have to be on the 6 year old.

Have the kids paint/draw on poster board and write on "We love you, Grandma or some other sentimental phrase. Have them hold it up, each on on one side and take a picture of them( date the picture on the back).Print it in a 5×7 or larger size, frame it, wrap it and have them give it to Grandma. I’m sure she will love it!

Have Fun!

A scrapbook is always a cherished project – what better gift than to give someone a piece of the creators themselves.
If you use acid and linen free products the book itself will be around for years to cherish and to even pass on to next generations.
