A Kids Easter Craft for Your Modern Home

I think spring is finally here!  I saw some crocuses blooming yesterday and the weather has warmed up quite a bit.  It has been so wonderful to get the boys outside more.  My oldest is also getting pretty excited for Easter.  I, on the other hand, have been all consumed with our renovations and am feeling like I'm dropping the ball on Easter.  He has been asking me to do an Easter craft with him and since our house is pretty much in chaos, I had to come up with something that was super simple to throw together.  We made modern easter egg art using the triangle pieces that I had used on our Valentine's Day geometric heart and some black and white card stock.  I think he did a pretty good job. 

I chose to frame his little masterpiece.  I was hoping to frame it in a white or black frame, but couldn't find our frames since everything is packed up so that it's out of the way during the renos.  The light wood farm will have to do for now.

This modern easter egg craft is really simple: 

1.  You will need to cut several triangles from assorted paper/ card stock and two sheets of card stock (one with an egg shape cut out of it).  In the photo I have two pieces with the egg cut out, but you only need one.  I was trying to decide if I wanted the background white or black.  I used this colouring page as my template (shrunk to 70% of the original size).

2.  Glue the triangle pieces to the solid pieces of card stock randomly to create a collage.

3.  Glue the piece of card stock with the egg shape cut out on top of your triangle collage.

4. Hang or frame your new modern Easter art.

I think this three year-old's art looks pretty darn good in our living room. :)

Did you notice that I took down the DIY floating shelves above these cabinets?  I was looking for a cleaner look in this space and am hoping to incorporate a spot for a record player somewhere.  It has to go higher than the top of the cabinet so that my curious boys can't get at it.  I still need to convince Pappa to hand over one of his turn tables though. :)  I really like the sound of a record player and would like my boys to grow up listening to music on one.

I was so glad that this Easter craft was super simple and quick to put together, which, in my opinion, is the best kind of kid's craft. :)  I also loved that Little Pilot was able to do the whole craft with very little help from me.  I hope you liked Little Pilot's modern Easter craft!
