Spring and Easter Activities for Kids Blog Hop
Spring is in the air! To celebrate, we decided to join in our first ever blog hop with some other wonderful bloggers from the Kid Blogger Network to bring you some Fresh Spring and Easter Activities for Kids! Last month, the twins enjoyed making our Valentine Suncatchers so much that we decided to make some for Easter, this time using Contact paper and some colorful craft supplies.
Our Easter egg suncatchers were inspired by these Tissue Paper Stained Glass Hearts from Imagination Tree. We used the same basic method, but added healthy handfuls of sequins and Easter grass to our collage before cutting out our egg shapes. You can hop over there for a full tutorial…it was super easy!
Here is a picture of the project-in-progress from my Instagram feed. I didn’t take any other pictures of the process because I was too busy having fun with the twins!
After the collage was completed, I cut out simple egg shapes with kitchen scissors. The Easter grass did interfere with the two sides of the Contact paper adhering together on some of the eggs, so I ran a line of hot glue around those to keep the layers together.
Here is a closeup of one of the “grassier” eggs.
Sequins took center stage on this one!
I hung the eggs up during nap time, and when the twins woke up and saw them in the window they were terribly excited. My daughter kept whispering, “Wow!” under her breath 😉 I love how they are so full of joy and wonder at the simplest of things!
