Easter Egg Animal Craft for Kids – A simple cut and stick craft that transforms Easter eggs into cute Spring animals.
Easter is a perfect opportunity to get creative with children. Flowers are bursting into bloom, the sun is shining again and everything looks colourful and bright! Here at Arty Crafty Kids, we’ve taken inspiration from cute springtime animals to create an easy Easter craft that your little ones will love.
This Easter craft for kids is perfect for pre-schoolers and younger children. The basic shapes are great for practicing cutting and fine motor skills and the simplicity of our ready made templates encourages independent crafting.
Assembling each animal helps children to think about how their features differ – the bunny has big ears and whiskers, but the chick has wings and a beak – and encourages spatial understanding.
Our Easter egg animal craft is perfect for home or in the classroom, to complement the springtime curriculum.
