I don’t know about you, but New Year’s Resolutions always make me feel depressed. I mean, you can spend an hour thinking about what you believe is wrong about yourself and make unreachable goals on how to better yourself. Although I may be young, I have had enough New Years pass to recognize that I’ll never be able to suceed at my goals. So, when I was scouring the interwebs, I came across a cool idea that I feel like is a more positive way of going about a New Year. On Buzzfeed it showed this group of people decorating a jar to put strips of paper in throughout the year.
How are you today? It’s the first of May, can you believe it? It is also 2 holidays today. A US holiday, National Day of Prayer and a Pagan holiday, Beltane-Samhain. Many of you are likely asking, ‘Are you Pagan?’ I am not a Pagan, I just like to respect all religions. So if you are a Pagan or a Wicca, good for you… Please enjoy today.
Either way, there are not a lot of crafts or recipes I can do for either one, so instead I’ll make a Cinco de Mayo craft for you today, Easter Egg Maracas. If you have some of those plastic eggs leftover, suddenly you have a new project. If not, I’m sure they are on sale just about everywhere.
Today I am posting my second craft… Easter bunny masks. I suppose they could be worn anytime but it just so happens that tomorrow is Easter! 🙂 Whether or not you celebrate Jesus’s resurrection or the candy and egg traditions that have come to be, hopefully you can find some enjoyment out of these masks. The bunny masks are super easy and fun for kids to help you make.
All of the materials you likely have on hand. You’ll need at least one paper plate, some crayons, a pair of scissors, a tapestry needle with some thread of any color, and some glue (I like Elmer’s but any will work).
