Every year, as Easter slowly approaches, I look for fun and easy Easter themed crafts that I can do with my children.
Crafting is a great way to celebrate and learn the meaning of certain holidays, and it’s also a fantastic way to work on fine motor skills!
How Can I Make Easter Crafts Eco-Friendly?
When it comes to arts and crafts, I always encourage myself, as well as my children, to use environmentally friendly supplies that can either be up-cycled, recycled, or composted. Some examples are:
- Kraft + Construction Paper
- Non-Toxic Glue
- Glass Jars
- Felt Paper
- Egg Cartons
- Toilet Paper + Paper Towel Tubes
Not all art and crafting supplies are 100% eco-friendly, and that’s ok. Some projects require the use of certain items like googly eyes; and I have no problem using them even though they are made from plastic because I can always reuse them on future projects. And if they make my child laugh and giggle, then I am all for it.
Below are some of my favorite low-waste Easter crafts for kids that we have been enjoying, and we hope you will too. They are super fun and easy to create, and look great when completed!
