Easter Crafts - Make Geode and Decoupage Eggs, Marshmallow Bunnies and Handprint Art Ideas, Too

I've been looking around online for the last few days for handprint crafts for Easter, because I feel an obligation to provide handprint crafts for the fifty-percent of my traffic (I'm totally serious) that comes here from a Google search of some variation on "handprint crafts."

But my search for handprinted bunnies and eggs? Eh, not so great. So instead, I offer these fun craft ideas for Easter:

Geode Easter Eggs. I love these. I was totally going to make these with my kids, but to be honest, it seems a little difficult so I will put them on my "to do next year" list. But they sound sooo cool and they look amazing:

Decoupage Easter Eggs. These eggs are gorgeous, and I personally love any opportunity to Mod Podge - and I'm not even kidding.  Anything the kids want to do - save spring flowers, press fall leaves, protect prized art work from their little brother, my answer is always "OK, let's do it. We'll Mod Podge it!"

Best about the Decoupage Easter Egg project, the directions are very easy to follow and show exactly how to go from this:

I also saw some fantastic eggs decoupaged with postage stamps, which I should definitely make because I had a buying-postage-stamps-from-eBay habit for awhile there, and now I find those little wax envelopes filled with stamps all over the house and know I need to find a use for them.

And last, Cute Food For Kids has super-adorable Marshmallow Bunnies, and clear, detailed directions, too.

Happy Easter!

It's horrible, I know, but I'm so relieved to hear that there is a craft you are putting off because it's too complicated. I found a lamb hand craft that's right up my alley = simple. We're probably going to do this this weekend: I also seem to remember making a butterfly with four handprints. Maybe you have that somewhere already.

You've inspired me to try the decoupage eggs, even though I haven't done that since elementary school. Looks like fun!

oh that lamb craft is too cute (and yes, does seem easy enough)

i try not to be over-ambitious when it comes to crafting with my kids, though i am continually amazed when visiting craft blogs what other people are capable of making while still keeping their sanity!

looking forward to hearing how the eggs turn out!
