I mean seriously, give me the name of ONE child who doesn’t love play dough and you will color me shocked.
There is something about squishy dough that just mesmerizes a child over an over again. As long as you prepare for a little mess ahead of time, activities using dough can be fun and simple. There are so many possibilities.

Easy Easter Craft Kids Will Love
Let’s get too it! The supplies are super simple and you may have most of them already at home. I truly believe that it’s important to not only to have fun things for kids to do we we can have some time to sit and rest, but I also believe that it shouldn’t cost us a lot of money to do it. As you will see below, I frequent the Dollar Tree and reuse as much as I can. Take a look!
I also included a bonus egg activity at the end of this post so check it out when you’re done!

Roll, Cut, Decorate!
I’ll just let the pictures do the talking here. But before I do, just a few tips and suggestions!
1.Make sure that you have enough dough to do all of your cutting because once my kids decorated the shapes, they had no intention on messing up their masterpiece. They just wanted more dough!
2. I decided to help the kids roll out multiple colors smushed into one to create this fun look and we loved the way it came out.
3. After rolling out the dough, simply use a play dough knife to make the egg shape or use an egg shaped cookie cutter.
4. We then used the left over play dough to form one more egg.
5. The last step is to add the decorations!
Bonus: Giant Pom Pom Painting Easter Egg Craft!
