The knowledge about this festivity as well as religious values should be introduced to children as early as possible, particularly for those who are still in preschool. One of the ways is to give them craft templates to do. If you look closely, there are differences between regular crafts and preschool ones. Firstly, in terms of color, the ones for toddlers have brighter and softer hues. Many use pink, yellow, blue, green, and white. It is a combination of pastel shades. Secondly, the design of the characters is cuter and friendlier. For example, the face of the rabbits and the baby chicks can be considered tamer and pleasing to the eyes. Lastly, the activities involved are simpler and easy to be done. They consist of coloring, assembling, and matching things and parts. If you want to use one of these images, you need to consider the purpose of the activity with your students so that it matches with the intended result.
One of the best decorations your small child can create is a bunny paper plate. It is particularly easy to do yet the result is outstanding. There are several steps that need to be done. Firstly, gather all the materials. They are a paper plate, a bunny template, cotton balls, googly eyes, craft glue, and scissors. Glue all the cotton balls on the paper plate. Cut the animal’s parts from the template. Stick the ears on the fluffy face. Add the googly eyes, nose, and mouth. Now, you have a finished art by your own hands. You can let your child keep it in his room. Ask them to place it strategically on the table or they can make it as a gift during Easter. Other family members would be so proud and happy to get the paper plate. Of course, educate your child on the meaning of the animal and the gift for loved ones so that they can send the present based on a full understanding of the action. Have a wonderful time!
You want your students to be able to create art during holiday and you want something different and original for them. Doing egg sponge painting could be a great idea.

They already have made a beautiful work of art. Of course, they can choose to make it as a decoration or they want to store it as important documents. When they move to the next grade, they can look back at the memories of you and them making things together.
