Cross Craft

Cross craft for toddlers

Talk to and teach toddlers about the Easter Story by creating some cross crafts that will help them to relate the story to things that they can do and understand.

  • This egg carton cross is perfect for little hands to make from Housing a Forest
  • Create a cross sun catcher like this one from Train Up a Child – toddlers love playing with the contact paper and the effect that it creates

Egg Decorating

Eggs are a sign of birth and are so ingrained with Easter that we eat them, decorate them and talk about them, with them being a sign of Spring as well it’s wonderful to get little hands involved. If the eggs mentioned in the post are real or blown eggs why not swap them for plastic or polystyrene eggs if your toddler is at the rough handling phase still.

  • With little hands why not make your egg for decorating on a large scale and a paper mache egg like this one from The Imagination Tree is perfect for toddlers to make with you this Easter.
  • Create some Eric Carle inspired Eggs from Red Ted Art
