Simple And Easy Colouring Easter Eggs
If you haven’t realized by now, I love to colour, I’m not the best but it’s a way that my mind can sit there and process information whilst my hands are other wised occupied!The less thought it takes the better, after all, I don’t want to stress out about the activity that is supposed to calm me down!
Easter Card Ideas For Kids
Being careful, if you are anything like me I can cut myself with a pair of scissors, cut out your egg template.
The edge of the template is quite thick I did this on purpose to help younger children practice their cutting skills!
If you don’t want a thick border just cut this off!
Then stick to your card!
If you are using paper then it’s best to stick it directly onto the card! However, if you print these out on card stock and then using sticky pads can help to add a dimension to your card and make it stand out even more!
I thought of a great idea if you really don’t want to colour, use washi tape and colour the egg in that way with layers of tape!
As you can see it’s really effective and so simple!
The idea for this card actually started out as the free printable that you can get, it was really a colouring page that I thought would be useful and then I found myself wanting to turn these simple coloured eggs into something special!
Homemade Easter Card
This simple and cute Easter card is fun to make and it’s a great way to show loved ones that you are thinking about them!
To add the wording to the card, you can use pre-cut letters that you can find in most craft shops!
However, I have a Cricut machine that is able to cut out the letters, and many other shapes simply and easily!
It means that I don’t have to look for letters I can make them myself!
I’m still learning how to use this machine, but so far I must admit that I’m loving it!
How it works is simple, this model uses a specific software and I am able to create things on my computer and then ask the machine to cut them out!
It’s great if you do a lot of crafting, I’m finding so many uses for the machine and I must admit I love how simple and easy it is to use!
Taking the time to slow down and do something that is not mentally taxing, or physically demanding is a great way to relax and unwind after a stressful day!
Doing these activities with your family is a great way to build memories that will last a lifetime!
