17 Easy Easter Crafts With Grandma

easy Easter crafts with grandma

We never had much money when I was growing up, but my mom always made sure we celebrated Easter in style.

I have photos of me each year, getting progressively older, sitting in a big chair with my hair tidy and wearing an Easter dress. Beside me is always a colorful Easter basket filled with colored plastic grass, those terrible chalky  sugary eggs, candy, and a giant chocolate bunny. There was always an egg hunt inside our house or in the back yard. I am not sure how my mother managed this all for 3 children with little money, but Peter Rabbit would have been proud!

I love Easter and the religious meaning it has for me, but even if you don’t celebrate the spiritual aspect of Easter, it is a great excuse to have tons of fun doing Easter crafts with grandma. I really believe  this saying to be true …

* Shaving cream colored eggs

Coloring eggs is one of the staples of celebrating Easter. I really only did it the traditional way as a child with food dye (though once a Ukrainian baba did come to our school and showed us how to make beautiful pysanky eggs). Here is a new technique you may want to try this year … I love the tie-dyed look!

* Salt dough egg ornaments

This craft brings back memories for me because I always loved making and painting salt dough creations as a young girl. I now have a small tabletop tree that I decorate for Halloween and Christmas and Easter. If you have a small tree (maybe left over from Christmas), you and your grandchild could create an Easter egg tree with these adorable ornaments.

* Easter homemade crayons

Kids love crayons, and how resourceful to make your own! What kids doesn’t want to break up crayons and then see them transform into bunnies (or carrots if you can find a mold) to color with and give to their friends. Crayons can be bought cheaply at the Dollar store (or gather the broken ones from the crayon box) and can find the bunny head mold in stores that sell ice or chocolate molds.
