"He is Risen" Easy Shapes greeting card template
-- Cut out the shapes and allow your child to arrange them on a piece of folded construction paper. Some can be glued and others applied with bits of folded tape, to give a "3D" effect.


Easter Bonnet Craft (picture coming soon)

-- a few sheets of newspaper or tissue paper
-- roll of masking tape
-- stickers, silk flowers, other little decorations for top of hat (whatever you have on hand)

Take a few sheets of newspaper or tissue paper. Have your child stand upright and look straight ahead. Place the paper on his/her head and then tape a band of masking tape around the child's head at about top-of-ear level. (Better to go lower than higher.) This will make the top of the hat so it will fit on child's head without sliding off.

Roll up all of the paper below the tape "brim." Roll it right up to the level of the tape, so you have the brim of the hat.

Decorate hat with stickers, silk craft flowers, leaves, tissue paper, whatever you have on hand. These are really adorable! Nora wore hers around til it practically disintegrated!

Milk Carton "Easter Baskets"

Wash out an empty milk carton and let dry.

Use an Xacto Knife to cut off the bottom 2/3 of the carton.

Let child paint or decorate as desired. (Nora loves painting boxes -- she goes nuts -- paints the inside, bottom, etc. Don't know quite what makes it so exciting, but it works...)

When dry, glue a strip of construction paper across the top as a "handle." Or punch 2 holes and thread pipe cleaners through for a handle.

Thank you!

Those are coloring pages that you actually fill in online. The ones I listed are coloring pages that you print out to color. (Just FYI) I've never tried online coloring pages with Nora, but I bet she'd like them, especially when she gets a little older. Thanks for the link!
