Getting the kids involved in Easter Preparations

Spring time is full of fun and colorful things…Easter being one of them! Do you remember being a kid and finding those magical chocolate eggs hidden in that Easter grass? Nothing like it! A great way to bring back those feelings is to get the kids involved in your Easter fun this year – whether with your own children, or with children you know. I Share is brimming with new and super simple Easter/Spring time ideas that are definitely kid-friendly! Here are just a few of my faves:

1.  Let the kids help with some Easter decorating! They will feel so grown up helping to make these Tissue Paper Decorations that are as fun as they are colorful!

2. Or maybe they would like to help put together this adorable bunny banner from “Serving Pink Lemonade”. I could see adding some cute cotton ball tails, too!

3. Easter wouldn’t be EASTER without eggs. A symbol of renewal and rebirth, eggs are “eggs”actly what Easter calls for! I know my girls will go nuts over these Easter egg rings. How simple, and how smart!

4. *I* might go more than a little “nuts” for these chocolate spoon “nests”. Mini eggs are my FAVE! (oh yeah, we’re talking about kids….right….)

5. And why not just pop some candy in some plastic eggs, then pop those eggs right in the mail? Who knew?

6.  An Easter post wouldn’t be complete without a few free PRINTABLES, right? I haven’t found a child yet who doesn’t love to play “Don’t Eat Pete”, so they will love this Easter version from Pink Polka Dot Creations!

Let the kids put together little treat buckets for their friends and teachers! Use these adorable printable tags to finish it off!

And finally, for a treat that your little can hold on to for a while, why not make an Easter T-Shirt with them? These printable iron-on transfers from Monika Wright are so stinkin’ cute, right?

      Love these ideas-so cute-but you have a typo on the Easter Iron-On. I am pretty sure you mean "T-Shirt".

      I normally really enjoy this website. But here is my complaint: Easter is a Christian holiday, about the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. I find it disheartening that you can't or didn't put up anything that has real meaning to why we celebrate this holiday in the first place. We celebrate it because a bunny wants to hide eggs and candy for our children? It is such a deep shame, that there is no acknowledgment on this website, when talking about Easter what the holiday is really about. No crafts for Resurrection Sunday that point to Jesus Christ. I can only imagine what other would say if they get to see this post, I doubt it would be positive. But Easter is not about bunnies and candy, we should be celebrating the true meaning of Easter, which is about Christ, and nothing else. You could have at least but up ideas for the Christians out there, along with the bunnies and candy. It is such a deep shame, that this wonderful holiday is boiled down to a bunny...Melissa
