Easter Banner

Pull out those dot markers and let your toddler help make this easy breezy Easter banner!

To start, the plan was to trace bunny and egg shapes onto yellow construction paper. I easily found an egg template online, but couldn’t find a bunny head in the same size so just free-handed it. I traced four of each shape.

Veronika was so excited that she trotted over to get the dot markers from our craft bin all by herself! She loved seeing the colors appear, although was slightly disappointed that the blue marker appeared a bit greenish on the yellow paper.

Once we’d covered the shapes, I cut them out.

Cut additional sheets of construction paper (we used pink and purple) in half so you have 8 pieces. Glue down the bunnies and eggs with a glue stick.

Now hang up somewhere prominent in your home! We decided last minute to spell out E-A-S-T-E-R on the shapes, but you can also leave them plain. Or, if you make just a few more, you can spell out a full H-A-P-P-Y E-A-S-T-E-R. The banner makes a lovely spring welcome above the bench in our entry hall.
