Keeping the kids occupied during spring break can be a very difficult task. It’s even harder when the break is TWO WEEKS long! Yep, you read that right. My kids are out of school for two whole weeks. If I don’t keep them occupied they will drive me crazy. Easter is coming up so I decided they could craft something for me to hang up in the house. The best part is I already had these items laying around. Even if you don’t have these things laying around, they don’t cost much. Do yourself a favor and go pick them up. It’s a good 30 minute Easter craft so that you can have a few minutes to yourself. Plus, you end up with a great Easter decoration.
The items you will need for this Easter craft:
- Canvas (I used two since I have two little ones to keep occupied)
- Full Sheet Sticker Label (I used these)
- Paint Brushes
- Paint colors of your choice (I kept it nice and bright for spring)
- Containers for the paint
I started out by finding a nice outline picture of a bunny online. Honestly, I used Google to search for the one I liked then just downloaded the picture. Once I had it downloaded I put it on a word document and printed it out on the full sheet sticker label like you see here.
After I printed out the bunny outline I cut it out and stuck it to the canvas. Now, my sticker sheets were kind of old and wouldn’t stick that great so I used some pink paint and painted the bunny down before I gave it my daughter. By the time I had it set up, my youngest had fallen asleep so my oldest got to enjoy the craft by herself. Once the sticker was in place I set up my kid’s little table in the kitchen and let my daughter paint away.
As you can tell, my oldest decided to follow my outline to start. She is very careful with her painting. Apparently she is the artist in the family and I have no clue where she got that from but I love it.
Once she was done painting, I pulled up the bunny sticker and let the canvas dry overnight. I think this might become a yearly tradition. Wouldn’t it be awesome to see how their skills and imagination grow each year?!
While it only kept her busy for around 30 minutes, it turned out so wonderful and she had so much fun. I’m actually considering doing my own.
I hope you enjoy this quick little craft for the kids. Please share with your friends or family. I would love to see what your little artist paints as well!
