Craft Ideas for Easter - Celebrating Through Art and Your Hands

Are you seeking inspiration for craft ideas for Easter?

Easter craft ideas can be as simple as a paper and crayon drawing or a cute little bracelet of colorful beads and Easter charms. Paper can be folded, ribbon added and odd sized wiggle eyes to create bunnies, chicks, lambs or butterflies - all signifying Easter or new birth.

Depending on the age group of your craft class, plastic canvas can be used to fashion a cute rabbit of any color yarn, double sided to hold candy kisses. Its little tag can read 'bunny kisses' and they can be taken home to Mom or Dad.

Mediums for craft ideas for Easter can be made from foam (which comes in all sorts of bright colors), beads, cardboard, or wood for a wide array of projects, to include boxes shaped like eggs or butterflies.

Among the chosen Easter treats, chocolate ranks high and it is fairly easy to work with. There are many molds the chocolate can be melted into to make pieces of candy or lollipops, in every conceivably shaped rabbit form. There are also eggs, chicks, baskets and butterflies. For the Christian theme, there are molds shaped as a cross, the first spring lily, and again, the butterfly or the lamb - these, too, are possible edible craft ideas for Easter.

For an absolutely lovely wreath (colorful - shades of brown, pink, white and green, and very pretty added to many of the Easter decors), gather a frame (wire or grapevine), ribbons, greenery, tiny flowers in yellow or orange, and plastic eggs. You will also need chocolate eggs - preferably plastic for the sake of mess and germs. Some might prefer to use plastic or foam chicks or bunnies as well as the eggs.

To attach all the decorative pieces, you can use wire or ribbons as fasteners, or hot glue to secure quickly. The really great thing about this project is that regardless of whether you use the same pieces each time, your finished project always comes out uniquely different.

There are all sorts of craft ideas for Easter to accomplish with jelly beans - drop dots of binding icing around the outer edges of a platter and top with different colored beans, or grouped about in a nest of tinted coconut atop a cupcake, or added to a jar with the number to be guessed by the crafters.

You can give jelly beans with a poem written by Charlene Dickensen in 1997, as a token of the love Jesus had for us. It tells the story of salvation through the colors of the beans:

Red is for the blood He gave.
Green is for the grass He made.
Yellow is for the sun so bright.
Orange is for the edge of night.
Black is for the sins we made.
White is for the grace He gave.
Purple is for His hour of sorrow.
Pink is for our new tomorrow.
An egg full of jellybeans, colorful and sweet
Is a prayer, a promise, a loved one's treat!
