Easter is knocking on the door and we made original Easter cards with the children. All we had to do was color papers, glue and a papier. In this article you will find inspiration for glueing, which Filip also managed (in two and a half years).
What we created
We made Easter cards with the motive of chicken and eggs. We created the chick by drawing the hand on yellow paper. The children liked the tracing. We also tried to make the chick directly from the handprint, but eventually we used colored paper. The children could not wait long before the paint dries. The green background curled and the paper would need to be flattened by the next day.
Suitable for: 2+ years old
Creation is suitable for children from two, two and a half years. Making Easter cards is not complicated and children enjoyed glueing very much. The youngest children may need adult help.
What you need
- Color papers
- Eyes or white paper and felt-tip pen to create paper eyes
How to do it
The procedure is as easy as gluing. First I made small eggs, grass and beak from colored paper. I split the green A4 paper. On the yellow paper I traced the hand of Martin and Filip. I cut two hands from each palm and the preparation was done.
Children stuck yellow hands on green paper. They fixed their eyes and beaks so that the hands resemble chickens. We glued the green paper together on papier (A4 folded to A5 as a wish).
Finally, the children decorated the front with a grass and eggs. Because the wishes inside seemed empty, I let them decorate it, too, fantasyly inside. Martin stuck colorful eggs everywhere, Filipstuck densely one side.
The wish was done. Both boys were happy about the result. 🙂
I wish you a lot of fun. 🙂
