Crafts for children – easy Easter table decoration with vase

Last month’s Bostik blogger theme was Valentine’s day. This month it’s time to create something for Easter and we’ve decided to go for an Easter table decoration. When I was walking the dogs this morning, I noticed how beautiful the spring blossoms were. It gave me the idea of incorporating them into our table decoration so that’s what we did.

There are simple bits for them to do such as fixing stickers on, while you can get on with the more complicated bits like glueing and sticking.

  2. Draw around it with a pencil
  3. Place stickers at random onto the A4 piece of foam, avoiding the circle you have drawn at the centre
  4. Fix Easter chicks and your finished polystyrene eggs onto the foam with blu tack

This was a super easy craft that both children could join in with. They helped me to paint the eggs and put glitter on them. While they were busy putting stickers on the base, I was able to make the vase and avoid ending up with gluey children.  The Easter table decoration can be refreshed as often as you like by changing the spring flowers in the vase.

    Looks great 🙂 How do you rate the glue compared to pritt stick/pva? I’m wondering if we should get a glue gun but if there’s something stronger than pva but safer for kids than glue gun?

    Seriously, how cute!? Love this. My kids will love giving this a go. The vases will make great Easter gifts for the Grandparents, we usually buy a bunch of daffs so this is perfect x

      Thank you, it was lovely to make. I’m not organised enough to have a craft cupboard so working with Bostik has been brilliant!

    What a beautiful Easter table decoration. I love the way you’ve used the felt to cover the glass and the way the girls have decorated the foam sheet. I never thought of using the glue to do zigzag lines for the glitter and painting the eggs first. Using the blue-tack to keep them upright while they dry is a really good idea – I’ll definitely be remembering that one in the future! 🙂
