I have been enjoying every second of my time with he kids while they are on spring break from school. It is so making me look forward to summer vacation, projects, and playing all day! I am also reminded that busy kids are happy kids. For that reason we have been doing all sorts of projects together to keep their little hands and minds busy so they don’t have time to cause trouble. This was a fun Easter activity that the kids had a great time with. We made candy bird houses for our Peeps, and now have some beautiful little bird houses to display through Easter! Graham crackers turned bird houses are a sweet way to make a peep house that the kids can decorate any old way they want. Of course, covering it with candy is an obvious choice. Not only would this be a great activity to do before Easter, but a great way to use up uneaten candy after the Easter holiday.
Here is a fun little craft to get your kid’s excited for Easter! Little plastic Easter eggs make the perfect base to create a bird that is fun, cute, and that can even store a little surprise! My kids spent two hours decorating their own little birds and another hour playing with them! They can be used as decorations, toys, candy holders, or even table decorations for the kid’s Easter table. They are as fun to play with as they are to make, and are the perfect project to do at home with the kid’s while they are on spring break from school! Gather some plastic eggs and get busy making them into the cutest little birds of a feather that will always stick together.
