Wow, so many projects but so little time. I needed to find some quick, inexpensive, and easy how to's for Easter. I got caught off guard this year and I am scrambling to find ideas for the kids. I think i hit the jack pot with this post. Ok I think I will start with the paper bag bunnies. I love the simplicity of this project. Then I will try some of the tube bunnies. What else would you suggest for a time crunched mom?

Amazing Easter crafts, there are so many to choose from! I have a bunch of crafting materials and after a few big projects you end up with a bag of scraps/leftovers. I can't wait recycle the scraps along with my paper and plastic recycling. I love all of the toilet paper roll ideas, perfect to do with the kids!

These are fantastic Easter craft. I used to make an Easter tree with my kids for years. A few weeks before Easter we would pick a few branches from some decidious trees like beech or maple and place them in a vase with water and decorate with hanging eggs. Within a week or so tiny green leaves would grow. It looked really pretty and very festive for Easter.

This one has just given me so many ideas for Easter crafts! Awesome! Although I have worked with plastic eggs before, dressing them up with rolled up chains of crocheted yarn, and I have used a couple of these ideas, I have not yet tried to make stuff with clay pots. Can't wait to make that clay pot easter tree and add it to the collection every year!

I LOVE ALL OF THESE CRAFTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't tried one-- Y-E-T ,but I'm soooo ready! I'm a "First Time" Grandmother, better known as "Grammy", some days, I'm "Mimmy",other days, I'm "Gimmy" and "my personal favorite "Mimmy-Mommy"!! I can't wait to do some of these crafts with "Evie"!! Happy Crafting!!!!! "Grammy"
