Easter

Easter!
Easter Projects
Easter Lithographs
Directions.  Trace or draw an Easter shape using crayon onto sandpaper.  Color the shape in.  Place a white piece of paper over the crayon drawing and press a hot iron onto the paper.  Try not to move the iron around, it will cause the crayon to smear.  Remove the iron and you will have your print!

Carrot Footprint

Glitter Eggs
We love making these styrofoam, glitter eggs - we make them every year!
Cover Styrofoam eggs with glue and then sprinkle with glitter.   Seal with a coat of Mod-Podge or hairspray.

Paper Plate Rabbits

Glitter Cookie Cutter Stamped Bunny
Directions:  Press an Easter themed cookie cutter into white paint.  Press the cookie cutter all over the bunny shaped cut-out.  Then sprinkle glitter over the wet, white paint.  Let dry.  Glue on a pom-pom for the tail.

Footprint Bunny

Sock Bunny
 Dirctions:  Use a colorful sock (I just happened to have some pink socks that were missing their partners!)  Fill the sock with dried beans or rice, filling it up just past the heel.  Close the sock with a tightly looped rubber band.  Tie a ribbon around the sock just below the heel, to create the head and neck.  Use scissors to cut the sock's cuff into two ears, rounding the edges tot give the ears the right shape.  Cut a nose and teeth from felt.  Attach the nose and teeth with craft glue.  I used googly eyes for eyes, but you can use felt.  Attach a pom-pom or cotton ball tail with glue.
