Let the Easter fun begin! Easter is less than 2 weeks away and I am getting excited! It really is one of my favorite holidays. I obviously always try to make the holidays fun for my kids, and Easter is no exception. Court’s amazing pre-school teacher, Ms. Sherri always does the best crafts with the kids. Whenever I pick him up his hands are full of his projects from that day and he is excited to show me each and every one of them. That’s why I thought a fun Easter craft would be perfect for him!
I’ve bought Court these wooden Easter eggs since his very first Easter, which happened a few days after he was born! You can buy them on Amazon, but I also saw them in the dollar section at Target. My idea was to have him decorate these wooden eggs so we could keep them and have them as a keepsake! I liked that idea because you put so much effort into decorating the real eggs and never get to keep them, this way I could capture his little almost 3 year old creative mind forever!

I went to my local craft store and bought all kinds of goodies. Paint pens, glitter, pom poms, stickers, puff paint, you name it. At a recent Easter playdate (which I will be sharing very soon!) I let him and a few of his pre school friends go to town! The best part was telling the kids about the Easter craft… They all got so excited to do it!! Thank you Ms. Sherri for instilling this amazing sense of creativity into them!! Here’s a little glimpse of the fun….
Nothing too fancy, just lots of fun stuff kiddos would like. I’m being a real mom on this one and doing things that aren’t as pretty, but definitely fun!!! I also think most of these are great for their fine motor skills and learning about shapes and colors!
Here they all are going at it! I was really surprised with how excited they were for this! Note to self, don’t let them wear their fancy clothes for this one… I thought I was being good by buying paint pens instead of actual paint, but it was still a mess!
There you have it… This is a great little craft to do with kiddos of any age. I think the little toddlers had a lot of fun with it but the older they get the more intricate and detailed they can be!! It’s a great thing to do as a tradition and then keep each year’s egg, it would be so cute to look back on when they’re older!!
Stay tuned for more Easter posts coming your way!!
