Can you believe Easter weekend is almost here?! It’s crazy how quickly it snuck up on us. Actually in all fairness, the holiday falls a bit earlier in the season this year. Unlike fixed-date holidays (like Christmas or Halloween), Easter is celebrated based on the lunar calendar so the actual date celebrated is different each year. This year, we happen to be celebrating at the end of March! (Image via Rotana Times)
Regardless of when we celebrate, Easter is an important and symbolic holiday for Christians around the world. It’s also a widely celebrated holiday used to celebrate Spring and the rebirth.
Today, we’re sharing fun Easter crafts your family will love doing! In fact, we’d bet you kiddos will be egg-static about making these crafts, all yolks aside. Ha! The puns were necessary. ;)
Read on to check out our Egg-cellent Easter Crafts!
