To my surprise, few people realize that for the Catholic religion it is Easter is the most important holiday, and not the most celebrated in the year of Christmas. Nevertheless, it is worth preparing yourself for both. Today, together with my kids, I suggest you make some decorations that will certainly please your family during Easter breakfast.

Greeting card (version for the youngest children)


  • Bristol colorful
  • Printed sketches of the inscriptions (e.g. happy alleluia, wet dyngus, happy holidays, etc.), eggs, bunny (or lamb, chicken, etc.)
  • Napkin
  • Glue, scissors, crayons, paints
  • Alternatively, a decorative punch

Child, please color the sketches of the inscriptions. At this time, we cut out the shape of an empty egg, greeting eggs. When the child colors the inscriptions, we cut them out.

We fold Bristol in half. One by one we glue the cut out elements: on the front, the inscription "Happy Easter", inside on the left an empty egg, on the right with wishes. We will decorate the page with inscriptions, e.g. names of children who will send the card.

On the last page, we attach the inscription, e.g. "wet dyngus". In any place we allow the child to stick decorations cut with a decorative hole punch. Finally, grease the bunny shape with glue and ask the child to put a napkin. It is important to stratify the napkin and use only a colored layer. When the glue dries, we cut out the shape of the bunny and ask the child to glue it on the front of our card. (fig. 1)

It remains only to dirty the child's hand with paint and imprint on the "empty" egg inside the card. Due to the large amount of glue, place the card between the pages of a large book at least overnight.

A unique greeting card is ready!
Older children can be entrusted with more activities and given a chance to be free, as well as applying their own drawings.

Easter egg from the first pages of newspapers


  • Gray newspaper page (electoral, Rzeczpospolita, etc.)
  • Hard-boiled egg
  • Paper glue, scissors

We cut out small pieces chaotically from a gray newspaper (preferably containing dense print). We grease the egg with glue and glue the newspaper pieces one by one. When the whole egg is sealed, we can additionally decorate it with cut out single letters, creating an inscription, e.g. Alleluia!

If our taste is colored eggs, we can make an Easter egg using the same technique, but using a napkin. This year, those with cutout patterns from Łowicz are extremely fashionable. However, remember to remove the bottom layer of the napkin.

Egg stands


  • Egg pressings
  • Scissors, glue, marker
  • Decorations, e.g. feathers, red felt or bristol, bow, or colored paper.

We cut out a fragment from the molding containing 2 full places for eggs. We treat one protrusion as a chicken tail, the other as a head. We cut the remaining ones a bit so that they are lower (however, to keep the eggs securely). We can stick a few feathers, a bow in the tail.

It all depends on our invention. If you do not have a feather, we can create it from colored paper. You should then cut the narrow strip on one side densely at an angle. Cut out the oval bristol: oval, triangle and trapezoid. Glue the oval below the beak (it is called a bell). From the base of the cut triangle, we mark the fold, which we cut in half. We bend the resulting wings in reverse directions. Stick the prepared beak above the bell. On its sides we make 2 dots with the marker, creating eyes. We make the comb from a trapezoid. We prepare a shorter base like a beak. The longer we cut into teeth. We glue on the top of the extrudate. We can bend the wings slightly when gluing to make the comb more rounded. (fig. 2)

Egg box


  • An empty box, e.g. herbs
  • napkins
  • Glue, scissors
  • Ew. colored paper for additional decoration

Take the bottom, white layer from the napkin. Colorful stick on the largest possible part of the box (e.g. the entire top with a wing, back wall, bottom and front wall of the box). We cut the excess napkins. We seal the sides of the box.

Inside, we can put hay, cotton wool or any "lining". A box prepared this way can be filled with Easter eggs and, for example, given to someone as a gift. You can additionally decorate the lid of the box by creating very thin two stripes from colored paper. We use wrapped scissors to create wrapped ribbons. We stick the centimeter strips of the edges of the ribbons on each other, forming two separate spirals. Finished. (fig. 3)

Rooster / hen


  • Toilet paper roll
  • Bristol colorful
  • Glue, scissors, black felt-tip pen

On 3 sheets of colored paper, we draw the child's hand or ours. We cut. We put all hands on each other so that the fingers of the next hand were in the spaces of the first. We glue in the middle of the palm. Stick the resulting tail to a roll of paper. From the front, we create the head and face of our chicken or rooster. We cut two pairs of wheels of different sizes. We stick a smaller circle into a larger one, and we draw the center with a felt-tip pen. Glue the eyes to the roll. We create a beak by cutting out a triangle and creating pleats as in the case of a chicken egg-shaped stand. The only difference is that we form a triangle from the tip of the triangle to the incision site. This will give the illusion of a "heavy" beak. It remains for us to cut the hens' feet out of red paper. We stick them to the roll with a glue tab, wrapping it inside the roll. (fig. 4)

Napkin ring


  • Bristol colorful
  • Glue, scissors, markers, ruler, pencil

We measure and sketch a strip about 10 cm (about 2 cm wide). At the ends we draw the same 2 eggs. On one side of the strip, the egg should start "from below", on the other "from above". We cut the whole thing. In the middle of eggs we make an incision to the axis of the egg. We wrap it, putting the egg on the egg. I suggest using pens to decorate eggs and a strip. Finished. Even simple children who can hold a crayon can make such simple rings. We can let the child smear a piece of paper with sketched rings, then cut them out. In the sample photo, I was tempted to have a version of children's decoration. (fig. 5)

Preparations for Christmas do not have to be just a search of cookbooks. By introducing decorative elements, you can create a festive atmosphere at home, joyful and most importantly - spring. The ornaments I propose can be made mostly by really small children. The older they are, the more work you can entrust to them or you can raise the bar for them. Either way, the moments spent together will bring a lot of joy, and the effect of the work will be enjoyed by all our loved ones.
