Do your kids love doing Easter craft, but don't like to sit still for too long? Then check out these simple card ideas below, which don't have many steps and don't take too long to make. As well as making cards, we also added the same design onto writing paper and envelopes, so we could send Easter cards and letters to friends and family far way. Everyone loves receiving a hand-made card in the mail!
Fold an A4 piece of paper into quarters to make your card. Use the lid of a vitamin jar (or similar) to trace circles onto yellow paper or card. Glue one circle on the front of the card, one of the back of an envelope and four at the top of the writing paper. Simply draw in with black pen the eyes, beaks, wings and feet on the circles, as show below. Simple, but cute!
An easy, quick Easter card and letter writing set using just yellow circles
Fold an A4 piece of paper into quarters to make your card. Cut a potato down the middle and paint one half in the colour of your bunny (keep the other half for the next card). Press it down onto the lower part of the card, the envelope and the writing paper, leaving room for the "ears". Paint two of your child's fingers and get them to press down onto the paper, at the top of the potato stamp, to make ears. Allow to dry. Cut out white circles for the noses and glue them on. Draw in the whiskers, eyes, mouth and inner ears.
Make cute rabbits using a potato stamp and fingers!
Fold an A4 piece of paper into quarters to make your card. Paint the other half of the potato in a bright colour and stamp your card, back of envelope and writing paper. Decorate with sticker gems in stripes, or use the pointy end of a paintbrush dabbed into paint to make dots all over.
These simple card ideas are a good starting point and then your kids can get as creative as they like. My daughter enjoyed making these quick cards and then she spent more time writing the letters and learning how to address an envelope. It kept her busy for a couple of hours!
Why don't you clear the kitchen table and get started this weekend?
