If, like me, you’re NOT a Pinterest Mum, here are 21 Easter Crafts for Kids and Spring Crafts for Kids! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I am not a crafty mom. Those ‘Pinterest Perfect’ crafts that everyone else manages to make end up on the Pinterest Fail Wall Of Fame. Yes, it does end up inducing a fair amount of mom guilt. However, this instantly vanishes when four months after the last failed crafting experience, I find a piece of glitter on my eyelid at a meeting with ‘proper people’ and then it all comes screaming back to me why I don’t do it … unless the school makes me!
However! It’s been about five months now, and I feel like I need to do something crafty with the girls to make memories for Easter and Spring. Facebook reminded me of the adorable spring hats we made a few years ago. That wasn’t too terrible as far as spring crafts for kids go.
The other issue I have with crafts is that my girls are not babies anymore. They enjoy more detailed crafts. So here is a list of Easter crafts, Easter baking for kids, and spring crafts that the kids will love, and mums too. Most of these crafts are for children aged 6 to 10 years old, but there are a few that are great for all ages.
