Quick and Easy Easter ideas

by Nathalie
Easter is exactly two weeks from today and if you are like me, you have not even started preparing for it! This is the reason why, I have compiled some of my favorite online finds that you might be inspired to try. They are all very quick to make and do not require special skills or tools (well, other than a printer...)

First, find a frame, print this free subway art from eighteen 25 and voila, you have something to decorate your mantle or shelves. 

Need treats for the classroom, or the soccer team? How can you not like these treat toppers? Simply print and attach to zip lock bags: Sweet Tweets from Beth Proudfoot and Peeps Topper from eighteen 25. The hardest part might be to choose which ones to use!

Don't want to spend too much $ on decorating? Visit the hardware store and create this super cute egg garland from paint chips with the tutorial from Modern Parents Messy Kids.

Of course, you need to send a few cards so you should probably print a few of these adorable cards from Living Locurno and send them pronto so that they make it to their destination on time!

Now, if you are planning a party (or just want to make it fun for the kids), all you need are those cupcake toppers and wrappers from Food Art Party and printable bunny straws from Byte-Sized Pieces. You don't even HAVE to bake the cupcakes but you will need scissors :)

Then, when it is time to decorate the eggs, print these egg bands from J. Bell Studio. I am planning on surprising my kids Easter morning with those happy chicks and bunnies!

This last one is just for you... Print it and put it on your fridge as a reminder :)
