The Draw Together Easter Set has been making myself and my family all kinds of happy lately! From the table coverings to the egg garland, and the wall hangings to the bunny heads, my little loved ones are up to their ears in coloring. In the set are some blank bunny heads. They are great for many things! You can make a garland out of them or use them as some minimalist Easter decor. I decided to print out a few copies and let my son and nephews decorate them. The result: they loved it!
When it comes to doing crafts with kids, I’m all about being simple, and that’s exactly what this project was. After printing out the bunny heads, all I did was grab some markers and crayons, construction paper, and googly eyes. I laid everything out for the boys, and then went and told them that I had a surprise for them. They were so excited when they saw what I had laid out for them. I even got a fist pump!
These boys were on the young side, so I helped them cut out bunny noses and glue them on. Everything else, however, was all them! Don’t you love some of the googly eye placements? I think it would also be fun, if you have girls, to cut out some paper bows or make some out of pipe cleaners to glue to the ears. You could also use some pom poms for the noses.
I loved the way all their bunny heads turned out! They were all so happy as they worked! It’s so sweet to watch kids explore their creativity. Once they were done, we hung their bunny heads on the wall as decorations. This was so fun. We will have to make this an Easter tradition.
Easter is hurrying right along, isn’t it? I’ve always had a hard time figuring out how to decorate my home for Easter, until the Draw Together Easter Set arrived. In it are some adorable little Easter eggs all ready to be made into a garland. Easy decorating for the win!
Making this garland is simple! Print off a few pages of the eggs. Then pull out the markers, crayons, or water colors and let your artistic side shine. If you have kids, get them involved with this. They will love it!
Once all your eggs are colored, cut them out. One of my favorite things about these eggs are that they are drawn with a think black border, making the cutting process super easy and fast. You won’t have to be super precise in the cutting process. Love that!
If you plan on hanging your garland against a wall like I did, pull out some twine or string and tape your eggs to it. If you want to hang yours in an archway or somewhere where both sides of the garland will show, grab a glue stick. Glue two eggs with the wrong sides together with the twine sandwiched between them. Let the glue dry.
You are done and ready to hang your Easter Egg Garland! I hope this helps get your home ready for this fast approaching holiday.

Included in our Draw Together Easter Set are these fun placemats to help keep some order at your egg dying festivities. Included are a “Dying” “Drying” and an egg pattern, perfect to color for those kiddos who are to little to dip their own eggs!
The excess dyes make a fun pattern on the placemats and protect your table from the dyes!
Look for egg holders coming later this week in our shop, because we can’t promise the placemats will prevent your eggs from rolling around (they’re just paper after all!)
Any egg post would not be complete without our favorite ways to dye your eggs. We are dying (get it??) to try the marbled eggs, who doesn’t have lots of extra nail polish lying around? The stamped eggs would be perfect as clues for the egg hunt, or as name cards for your Easter brunch. Break out your watercolors to get a unique look (it might be too messy for kids!) Lastly, the yarn wrapped eggs might take more time, but they can be saved until next year and will add such a fun texture to your table.
Check out our Spring Pinterest board for these ideas and more!
We compiled some of our favorite kids toys to surprise your little ones on Easter morning. We love the idea of filling their baskets with toys that promote creativity, rather than candy (that way you can save the Cadbury eggs for your drawer!)
Our mixmates pair perfectly, and even fit inside of the adorable Target eggs for the Easter hunt. Just make sure you remember where you hid all of them so the kids are not missing a block of legs! The mixmates come in sets of: Careers, Boys & Girls, Monsters & Superheros, and Animals. Each set teaches problem-solving and fine motor skills to your little ones.
