Easy Last Minute Easter Craft Idea
Need a last minute Easter craft? Try this simple, fun (and dare I say old school?) way to let kids’ creativity take center stage using Faith That Sticks stickers!
I adore kids crafts. In fact, I have several Pinterest Boards dedicated to them.
But sometimes, I think we get so caught up in the “musts” and “have tos” of a certain craft project that we miss the true beauty of allowing our kids to just create.
And so, it was in this spirit that we invited some friends over to do some Easter kids crafts.
No stipulations. No five steps to follow. Just a time to draw, explore and create.
We literally just laid out all our supplies—including some great Easter-themed “Faith That Sticks” stickers by Tyndale House Publishers—and told the kids to have fun.
We did do a little prompting (“What do you think of when you think about Easter? What do you think is the most important message of Easter?”) to get their creative juices flowing.
But we were amazed at how the kids just naturally began creating beautiful artwork that showcased their budding relationships with God.
The Faith That Sticks stickers are a fun and playful way for kids to bring a deeper meaning to their art.
In fact, many of the kids designed their Easter pieces around the stickers.
Since this was an Easter-themed craft time, we only used the Easter-themed Faith That Sticks stickers. However, there are over 100 sticker packet styles, including Christmas themes, Bible stories, classic symbols of the Christian faith, animals and more.
Some of the Faith That Sticks packs (most containing six to eight sheets of stickers) are based on drawings from some of Tyndale’s children Bible books such as Thank You, God!, and Blessings Every Day: 365 Simple Devotions for the Very Young.
My kids have several of these books, so they recognized the characters immediately and that made the craft more fun.
Other stickers in the Faith That Sticks collection include cute animals (such as “Ark and Animals”), or encouraging statements about our faith (such as “Illustrated Bible Verses”).
Each of these collections allow kids to express their faith in fun and unique ways… which is exactly what an open craft time should be.
What I love about just laying the supplies on the table and letting kids go is that there are no pretenses, no expectations. Everyone does their own thing, and each child creates his or her own unique masterpiece.
Some of the kids wanted to make complicated, expressive designs…
…some focused on the emotion of the resurrection, celebrating Jesus’ rising from the dead…
…while others just enjoyed putting their stickers all over the paper and called it good.
At the end we took all the creations and pinned them on a long thin ribbon using paper clips.
Then we simply attached the ribbon to an entryway, turning their masterpieces into one-of-a-kind Easter decor for our home.
Simple, low-stress and creative. We incorporated a few elements (like the Faith That Sticks stickers) to inspire them to express the true meaning of Easter, and that was all they needed!
Learn more about Faith That Sticks at their website, at their Facebook page, or order them on Amazon.
These stickers are not only great for open crafting times, but also for adding to notecards, to use in scrapbooking, as a way to recognize a child’s great work on an assignment–whatever!
Happy Easter, everyone!
