Arts and crafts projects can delight your toddler at Easter. You can help your toddler make a card celebrating spring, new life, customary symbols of Easter such as a bunny or flowers, and, if you are Christian, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many of these card ideas come from online sites that have printable craft supplies and instructions. From there, follow your or your toddler's creativity.
Paper artist Robert Sabuda offers a number of easy-to-construct cards on his website, robertsabuda.com. Print out the pattern and follow the directions to assemble. The website has a number of Easter symbols, such as a rabbit and an Easter basket. A toddler could easily help put the card together and also color it, either before or after construction. The website recommends you print the pages on construction paper or cardstock.
Many websites, such as familyfun.go.com, feature printable cards a toddler could color and assemble. For Easter, familyfun.go.com has a "Little Birdie Easter Card" and a "Bunny and Bee Easter Card" to color.
Easytoddlercrafts.com has a printable Easter bunny craft. Print the shapes found on the website, cut them out and piece them together. You could then affix the bunny to a large piece of paper to create a card.
Search for Biblical scriptures about Jesus Christ's resurrection, such as John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life;" or Matthew 28:6, "He is not here: for he is risen." Write the verse on a blank card for a toddler to color and decorate with Easter-themed stickers.
The website artistshelpingchildren.org provides directions on how to make a paper-crafted Easter lily bouquet using tracings of your toddler's hands. While not a traditional two-dimensional card, it's made of paper and is a project a toddler could easily help put together. Follow the directions on the site to find out how.
