Easy Last-Minute Easter Crafts for Toddlers

Easter Eggs

If you’re anything like me, life with a toddler is jam-packed and busy, busy, busy.

I’d love to say that we’ve been spending our afternoons finger painting spring flowers, dyeing eggs (with all natural color, of course *wink wink*), and making papier mache collages, but life has gotten in the way of craftiness.

I vowed recently to make more of an effort to engage in activities with my kids instead of just supervising their play and giving in to the hurried pace of life.

Since Easter is just around the corner, I thought that these toddler-approved crafts would be just the thing to get us out of our rut.
