You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Toddler/Kid Easter Craft

Here’s an easy holiday to-do for the five and under crowd.

1.  Find yourself some thin cardboard.  The cardboard packaging that cheap beer comes in is perfect.  And let’s face it, if you have children under 5, you probably have a decent amount of that stuff hanging around. . .

2.  Wait until the children are napping.

3.  Crack open a cheap beer.

4.  Place the cardboard packaging plain brown side up on a solid surface and free-hand some egg shapes onto the cardboard with a pencil.

5.  Cut out the egg shapes with scissors or an Exacto knife.

6.  Paint the eggs a solid color.  (I used white).

7.  While the paint is drying, set up your “disaster area.”  Prep other paint colors, gather up lots of Q-tips, cover a floor and table if needed.

8.  When nap time is over, strip the kids down to their diapers or pull ups or Baby by Victoria knickers

9.  Place one “egg” in front of each kid.  (Or multiple eggs depending on your needs).

10.  Hand them a Q-tip, which you have pre-loaded with some paint.

11.  Show them how to make polka dots and squiggles, etc on the egg with the Q-tip. (Repeat as needed for multiple colors.)

12.  While they are painting, place a pair of bunny ears on their head.

13.  Snap adorable photos.

14.  As soon as the kid(s) lose interest, remove all painting supplies and the “finished” eggs.

15.  Once the paint is dry, use a thick colorful/printed paper  and glue to cover the backside of the cardboard egg.

16.  Use a nice marker to neatly write the child’s name and date on the front of the egg (like signed art).

17.  Print out an adorable photo with a wide border.

18.  Write in the border “Some Bunny Loves You.”

19.  Stick the photo and the “egg” in an envelope.

20.  Happy, Easy Easter!

    Our grankids are coming over in a couple hours to color eggs. I just poured my first rum and coke, and hope to have at least another down before they get here. By the time they leave I should be well past the Happy Easter stage.

      Yeah. You can’t dye Easter eggs without a cocktail (or 3). The potential mess and trauma is huge. I hope nothing in your house is perma-stained pink or green this morning!
