So this year, I’m looking for some fun, realistic (ahem) craft ideas for Easter that incorporate things I have at home already. These easy Easter crafts I found are made with everyday supplies, hopefully to save you some money and a trip to the arts & crafts store (you’re welcome) — take a look at what kids can do with things as basic as plastic spoons, empty paper towel rolls, drinking straws and egg cartons. Oh, and their imagination. Which isn’t basic at all....Read More

This is the time we start thinking Easter for you all, and as always, we love finding special little treats for the Easter baskets that aren’t necessarily your typical drugstore-shelf chocolate bunny. So I think this Easter Bunny painting kit is just perfect, especially considering it’s under $15. It’s not only a great craft in itself, but makes a cool keepsake that kids will proudly display when they’re done. And while it’s recommended for kids 6 and up, I’d imagine that preschoolers would do just fine with a little parental supervision. Coloring in the lines is overrated anyway.
