With Easter fast approaching, your child may be begging you to dye eggs. Personally, I don't like dying eggs because then I have to use up all the raw eggs and I don't like wasting food. I know I can do hard boiled eggs, but then I have to make sure I use food-based dyes and my kids won't eat the eggs anyway, so I'm left eating 12 purples eggs. There is a way out. You can do other fun crafts and not spend a ton of money either.

These way too cute bunny juice box covers are so simple and cheap to make. I would also suggest you could use empty toilet paper rolls. Scrappin with my bug has all the very easy instructions on her blog.

Spring-Chicks-1

These little chicks are made from paper plates. I love how they foster the fine motor skills with cutting and they don't need to be perfect. I love this for any age. Check out what you need at Housing A Forest.

Puffy paint is fantastic as it makes a fun sensory experience and a unique type of painting. Make some Easter farm animals with puffy paint. For directions on making puffy paint, you'll have to check out Nurture Store.
