Easter is a month away, but everywhere we look little tutorials about dying eggs and felting bunnies seem to be popping up! We have compiled a list of Waldorf Inspired Easter and Spring Kids Crafts and Adult / Kid combo crafts to get the bunny out of your system! Enjoy!
1: Dying Easter Eggs using natural plant based dyes!
There are actually so many tutorials on this subject, so we are giving you links to a few different ones.
These are all worth the read, because each tutorial has something to offer. Find the recipes that work best for you (although no matter which you choose, you’ll need red cabbage).
So cute,, and so Waldorf! These adorable little felt eggs make a pouch to hold candy, treats, little toys or whatever the Easter Bunny brings! Thank you again Lusa Organics for a great idea!
3: Making Beeswax Egg Candles!
No City School crafting top ten list seems to make it out of our blog without a beeswax project of some kind!
