Kids love the chance to explore and experiment with paint and found objects.
Here's a fun, simple craft to try with young (and older!) children. Make a beautiful surprise Easter egg to brighten your home, or stick it on a card and send to a friend or relative.
There are many ways to make pompoms but this is by far the simplest and fastest method I have come across. All you need is a fork, some yarn, and a pair of scissors.
With just three folds and a cut, even a young child can create a beautiful star out of a circle of paper.
Paper chain making is relatively simple, yet requires incredible concentration and gives those finger muscles a fine-motor workout.
