easter decorationsEaster is my absolute favorite holiday!  Part of the reason is because we don’t have high expectations for it, so whatever we do is usually a big hit.

Currently, I don’t have any  decorations. We have baskets that we use every year and a plethora of plastic eggs, but as for decorations? I don’t really have any.

However, since it is my favorite holiday, I wanted to make it a point to be festive this year.  So I scoured the interwebs for simple, fun, and easy ideas that I can do together with my family.

Here are some of the ideas I found.


Thanks to our March Sponsor, Wishing Tree Play Cafe.

Easter Name Card

Easter Button Flower Placecard

I don’t think I know anyone with a plethora of buttons like my mom had while I was growing up.  It was one of my favorite things to sort and feel and play with.  But even if you don’t have a button collection like that, you can pick up buttons fairly inexpensively at ArtStart’s ArtScraps in St. Paul or any Michaels or LakeShore Learning.  You can even make pretend buttons out of cardboard.

Supplies needed:

  • Buttons
  • Construction Paper or Cardstock
  • Glue (I love Tacky Glue)
  • Writing Utensil of Choice

Directions:

  1. To create the name card, fold construstrion paper in half.
  2. Trim to desired size
  3.  Create a flower out of multiple buttons or paper
  4. Write name
  5. Decorate card (Optional)

While dying eggs is still on the top of our Must-Do List, this is a fun (and possibly cleaner) alternative/addition.
