Miffy bunting and Easter Crafts for Toddlers

This yea we wanted to try and decorate a bit so I thought that some miffy bunting and other easter crafts for toddlers might be a good way to keep us occupied.

This is, I guess an Easter Crafts for Toddlers to Keep Their Parents Sane this is, because, well.. two weeks holiday is a long time, three weeks in my son’s case. Having spoken to some of my parent friends today the general consensus was that the wine was flowing earlier in the day than normal, so with that in mind, here are some of the Easter crafts me and my three year old have been doing when, the weather is a bit poor or I really can not face soft play.

Easter Bunting

Childrens Easter Bunting

The blank bunting I’ve used here was 99p at The Range. Bargain and I’m a great believer that you need things quickly to hand when dealing with small people! I cut the letters and we discussed what each letter was and what words we knew that began with that letter. R is for Robot, obviously. Fingerprint chicks and a bit of free styling at each end. Looks nice enough to put up! Sweet!

Goth Bunnies

Bought from The Works, took ages for him to paint, the concentration! No claims to creativity on my part on this one at all, love the goth look he’s gone for though.

Bunny Bunting

Traced round a picture of Miffy, two of them cut out with my help, one done pretty much on his own while I attempted to keep all of my fingers attached. Its made using washi tape and bakers twine, the same as with my Children’s Art Garland.

I’ve also got a fantastic Pinterest board of Easter ideas for kids and adults, do come and follow it!

Normal service with some stuff I’ve made will resume shortly, just as soon as pre-school is back. Until then its washi tape, finger painting and of course a bit of wine…

    Brilliant ideas! I’ve also found that it seems a long wait to Easter this year and we’ve been doing more Easter crafting than we normally do! I love your Miffy bunting, I’m a big fan of washi tape, love the way you’ve used it to hang the bunting

    looks like a fun, if messy, way to entertain the little ones and lets be fair – we all love gluing and sticking even when we’re grow up!
