If you’re looking for an easy craft to make with the kids this Easter, with minimal fuss and mess, you have to make these Easter Egg Flowers.
I love crafting with my girls. It’s my ideal way to play and spend time with my kids.
It’s unusual for the school holidays to start before the Easter long weekend, but it’s been ideal as we have been able to enjoy all the Easter festivities and craft.
I made these Easter Egg Flowers last year for a kids church activity. I used confectionery sticks with the kids to prevent stabbing injuries with the bamboo skewers (workplace health and safety comes first when working with kids!).
You can ascertain which sticks will work with your kids. The bamboo skewers are much easier for the kids to ‘spear’ their flowers and chocolate Easter Egg though.
Easter Egg Flowers
All you need to make these Easter Egg flowers are
- Bamboo skewers/ confectionery sticks
- Mini Solid Easter Eggs
- Cupcake case liners of different sizes, colours and patterns
- Scissors for cutting the liners
To make the petals
- Flatten each cupcake liner. Fold in half and then into thirds like a pizza segment.
2. Use scissors to cut a petal shape by rounding the edges.
3. Open your cupcake segment to reveal a flower.
4. Layer your flower petals to create contrast.
To make the Easter Egg Flowers
- Use a small amount of Blu-Tack to create a stopper on the stem (bamboo stick). The petals will fall down the stick otherwise.
Pierce each cupcake liner flower (larger first and then smaller liner).
Add your Easter Egg to the top of the stick. Make sure the kids don’t push too hard as it will split the egg. You will need to supervise this part to ensure no injuries!
If you are doing the work-from-home-school-holiday-juggle… or simply need an easy Easter craft to make with the kids, make these Easter Egg Flowers together. We had a ball of fun making these.
Once a few flowers are made, you can put them on display around the house for Easter.
My girls decorated the outdoor plant with their creations. They could also be used in an Easter Egg hunt outside. The skewers are firm enough to be staked in the ground. This may avoid finding lost chocolate eggs in the garden a year later. Haha!
You could also group them together to give as a gift. A very cheap way to give out Easter Egg Gifts.
