Excellence Matters Early Childhood Easter egg Nature craft

Encourage a joy in giving and sharing in children with this collection of easy Easter creative activities for children aged 0-5 at your service.

We've focused on crafts that are easy, fun and cost effective using resources that are recycled, natural or you are likely to have on hand.  And most of all we looked for crafts that are simple and that the children can mostly make themselves.

If you have children at your service that don't celebrate Easter, these activities can be adapted to be open-ended celebration activities or general construction or creative experiences.

Here's a nice simple activity that combines an outdoor adventure to collect fallen flowers and other items from nature.
