Paper Plate Chicks & Bunnies | Easy Easter Crafts

Paper Plate Chicks & Bunnies | Easy Easter Crafts

With it being a long weekend it is the perfect time to get your craft on. Four whole days (three if you don’t count Sunday which is obviously a day of eating chocolate until you burst!) to keep the children entertained! So I have the perfect easy easter craft for you to do at home.

Easter is one of my favourite times of the year to get creative. I’m not sure if its the pastel colours or the cute chicks and bunnies but I’m a sucker for an Easter craft!

For this activity all you need is a paper plate, a piece of card, some paint and a black sharpie pen. The rest is optional and depends how creative you really want to be!

Little and I had great fun making these and this activity allowed her to be totally independent.

Step 1 – paint the plate whatever colour you choose.

Step 2 – stick on the eyes & nose if you have them or draw them on with a black sharpie pen.

Step 3 – cut out the shapes needed from the card (if you don’t have the coloured card you need then you can paint this too!). This is the only part Little couldn’t help with but I gave her some spare card and a pair of scissors to help her feel involved.

Step 5 – add any finishing touches such as wings/whiskers using whatever you have handy. I didn’t have feathers for the chick or pipe cleaners for the whiskers so I improvised and used tissue paper!

I have also made a Pinterest board complete with lots of ideas for easy Easter crafts. But another of my favourites, which reminds me of Primary School days, is decorating a hard boiled egg!

    Oh these are fab! Zach had been busy making easter crafts at nursery this week but these look so simple I really long I could have a go (I am so crap when it comes to crafts!).

    Oh these are lovely and easy to do. My little one is too young for crafts at the moment. Last year I made little crochet chicks. This year we’ve done some Easter baking instead so my daughter can eat what we’ve made.

    Oh I love that chick it is so cute. Little Miss H would love these craft ideas. And I love the idea that these crafts can be done independently – does that mean I get to drink a hot cup of tea?! Hugs Lucy xxxx
