My only real memory of doing Easter crafts growing up is the pungent smell of vinegar.
I’m sure I enjoyed the actual egg dyeing, but I only remember the vinegar, which was and is still my least favorite smell.
So, to help give future generations better Easter craft memories than my own, I scoured the Internet to find fun spring and Easter craft ideas that involve zero vinegar. For those who celebrate the holiday, due to the stay-at-home order, it’s going to look much different this year than it has before! But I hope that by doing a fun craft or two with supplies you might already have sitting around the house, you’re still able to create fun memories.
Even if you don’t celebrate Easter, many of these can be modified or are general springtime crafts that you and your littles can still enjoy making together! You might even consider tucking some of these ideas away for Mother’s Day gifts.
