Small Decorative Objects

Small decorative objects that are easy to make. Easter has also become an opportunity to roll up our sleeves to make all kinds of small decorations and themed objects intended to immerse us in the festive spirit. And in reality, there is a whole paschal universe populated with eggs, chicks, rabbits, and lambs, which have become its symbol.

Of course, adults and children will have fun carrying out projects inspired by the biggest spring festival. Still, it is undoubtedly the little ones who look forward to these activities with the greatest impatience. So to fill up with ideas on how to occupy them, today we will present the best Easter DIY ideas for kindergarten.

Small Decorative Objects

Make an Easter Chick or Bunny from Recycled Materials

As has already been pointed out, in popular tradition, the feast of Easter is commonly associated with a few animals symbolizing the proliferation and spring revival. These tiny animals, which are also cute to eat, are today the subject of several creative crafts revolving around the paschal theme.

In kindergarten, we will have fun recreating these symbolic creatures by using a wide variety of materials to make them. Glass jars, disposable cardboard plates, and even clothespins and ice cream sticks could quickly turn into beautiful tiny decorative objects, and in the following lines we will show you how to draw cool drawings.

Easter Chick in Disposable Cardboard Plate

Materials and tools needed:
  • Yellow cardboard plate
  • Orange or yellow-colored paper
  • Wiggly eyes
  • DIY glue
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

Step by step realization:

1. The first thing to do is to get and prepare your material for the steps that will follow. Regarding first the cardboard plate, if you do not find one of yellow color, it will also be necessary to provide paint in this color and a brush to repaint it. Then cut out all the small elements that will make up the chick’s body from the paper.

2. As wings, have the child trace the prints of his hands on the yellow paper and cut out the figures, thus created with scissors to glue them on the back of the plate.

3. For the legs, cut two strips of orange paper (about fifteen cm each) as well as two tiny hearts in the same color of paper. Glue these to the bottom of the orange paper strips. Have everything tied at the bottom of the back of the paper plate.

4. Now, cut out the shape of a flower petal from this same color of paper, then fold it in half and glue it in the center of the plate as a beak.

5. Lately, glue the wiggly eyes and voila… An adorable little creature who is ready to accompany the child on the paschal journey.

We will proceed in almost the same way to make an Easter bunny on a paper plate. Paper ears, pompom nose or colored button, pipe cleaner mustaches, movable eyes, and a muzzle drawn in felt. And then, all you have to do is attach all the elements to the paper plate.

Easter Candy Boxes in Recycled Glass Jars

Small objects decorations that are easy to make

You could use the same patterns to make a fantastic Easter candy or chocolate box. Here are the directions to follow.

Materials and tools needed:

  • Glass jars
  • Glue varnish
  • Brush
  • Glitter
  • Foam paper
  • Pom poms
  • Wiggly eyes
  • Hot glue
  • Easter treats

Step by step realization:

1. First, coat the surface of the glass jar with glue varnish and sprinkle with glitter to cover the integrity evenly. Shake well to remove excess. Set aside and let dry well.

2. To make the bunny pot, cut ears out of the pink and white foam paper and glue them behind the pot. Next, glue, again behind but this time at the bottom, a pink pompom as a tail. Next, you will need two movable eyes, a white pompom, pink foam paper whiskers to make the head. Finally, everything must glue to the face of the glass jar.

3. Making the chick is even easier. It is enough to glue movable eyes and tiny orange foam beaks on the face again and add legs still in foam paper of the same color.

Creative Upcycling DIY Project with Egg Carton

And speaking of candy boxes, you could still make an overly cute miniature version of them by recycling another very themed material – the egg box. Here are my necessary materials and detailed directions.

Materials and tools needed:

  • Egg box
  • Paint and brush
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Markers
  • Hot glue gun

Step by step realization:

1. First, isolate the cells making up your egg carton and cut them on top to flatten them and eliminate any irregularities.

2. Repaint the cells with an acrylic paint color of your choice and apply a second coat if necessary.

3. Assemble two cells by their openings using a strip of washi tape, as shown in the photo below.

4. Cut out of colored paper the other elements composing your animals’ bodies and fix them on the spot using glue. That is, ears made of paper triangles for the rabbit and wings, beak and legs for the chick.

5. Fill small boxes with tiny treats.

The Best and Easiest Ways to Decorate an Easter Egg

Decorated eggs are another Easter staple that is the subject of many crafts and especially original decoration techniques. The less sophisticated among them could well offer to children in kindergarten and below we will give you some fantastic and super simple ideas to achieve.

First, to give interest to a single-colored egg, children can be asked to glue a few colored paper flowers on it. Nothing rocket science there. You only need a flower-shaped hole punch to cut small flower decorations out of colored paper. Finally, smear a small amount of glue on the back of any flower and glue the small cascading embellishments onto the egg. Here is the tutorial presented in photos to make it more transparent.
