With Easter just around the corner, it’s time to get crafty with some fun and creative festive activities! As educators, we understand the importance of introducing arts-based learning opportunities to our preschoolers. Easter egg crafts are super fun and colorful decorations to add to your spring holiday decor. And this is the best list of Easter egg crafts for preschoolers.
20 Easter Egg Crafts for Preschoolers
Spring has the best crafts, doesn’t it? What with all the pastel colors, there’s also something about spring that seems to encourage us to start new projects and crafts, right?
Easter is the same for me.
I see the Easter eggs in the stores and think of the cute garlands everyone is making out of them. Or wreaths. Or maybe those eggs are just being displayed in an Easter basket on the fireplace mantel.
And I see the baby animal icons in the Easter section, and again, I think of all the cute crafts that highlight these soft, furry, and little animals. Cute little chick crafts, bunny crafts – any easy toddler Easter craft really.
Well, it seems like Easter would be amiss if you didn’t include at least one (or maybe two or twenty) Easter Egg crafts in your preschool Easter lesson plans.
You see, Easter eggs are something most preschoolers can identify with. They love those little plastic eggs hiding candy treasures. So why not do a paper Easter egg craft so your preschoolers can enjoy a little art fun, too?
Don’t be fooled, though. Many Easter crafts in this list make easy Easter arts and crafts for toddlers, too! Many of them are simple enough to be an Easter craft for toddlers, but fun enough for preschoolers, too!
