I can hardly believe that Easter is just 2 weeks away. So, to prepare, we have been so super busy during Spring Break making Easter and spring crafts to decorate our hall and bulletin board. I love Peeps! The soft, bright marshmallow Easter treats were the inspiration for our new bulletin board. I crafted an Easter basket for them and added some pretty spring Daffodils and our board is complete.
We are reading “The Best Easter Eggs Ever” by Jerry Smath, “The Easter Egg” by Jan Brett, “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick” by Lucille Colandro and “The Best Easter Prize” by Kristina Evans.
Sing With Me
(to the tune: “Are You Sleeping”)
Easter Bunny, Easter Bunny,
Bringing treats, bringing treats.
Jelly Beans are dandy!
So are eggs with candy!
Oh, what fun! Yum, yum, yum!
I’m a Little Chicken
(to the tune: “I’m a Little Teapot”)
I’m a little chicken,
Ready to hatch,
Pecking at my shell,
Scratch, scratch, scratch.
When I crack it open, out I’ll leap,
Fluff up my feathers and cheep, cheep, cheep!
We started out with paper plates and painted them yellow, then added a beak, feet, yellow feathers and a google eye.
Peek A Boo Bunnies
We made bunnies out of paper plates, decorated them and made them look like they were peeking out of the grass with green hand prints for the grass.
Foot Print Carrots
We made these adorable foot print carrots to go along with our bunnies, because bunnies love carrots!
The daffodils are made from a star shape painted yellow and a cupcake liner for the center petal.
After they were dry I cut them out and added a green stem.
I copied the original onto card stock and we painted the chick and bunny Peep templates yellow, blue and lavender. While the paint was still wet we sprinkled them with irridescent glitter to make them look like sugar. I got the template from trisha b blog. Perfect for our class craft!
When they were dry, I cut them out and added them to the bulletin board.
We got to sample some Peeps after all of our hard work making crafts!
Our finished bulletin board complete with the Easter basket, grass, Easter egg and jelly bean boarder, yellow daffodils, Peeps and butterflies!
The bunnies, chicks and carrots are decorating our hall way along with the giant felt eggs I got at the Dollar Store.
